DD Form 2912 Claim for Temporary Quarters Subsistence Expense (TQSE) (Sub-voucher)

What Is DD Form 2912?

DD Form 2912, Claim for Temporary Quarters Subsistence Expense (TQSE) (Sub-Voucher) is a form used to review, approve, account and disburse money for Department of Defense (DoD) travelers' claims.

The latest version of the TQSE claim form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 2912 - was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) in June 2006 with all previous editions now obsolete. An up-to-date DD Form 2912 fillable version is available for filing and download below or can be found through the Executive Services Directorate website.

The TQSE claim is designed to reimburse employees for some costs paid when occupying temporary quarters at the old or new duty station. The form has to be authorized by the individuals' agency before they occupy temporary quarters. House Hunting Trip (HHT) days will be subtracted from the first 30 days of the TQSE Actual Expense if it takes up more than 30 days. TQSE can be stopped only for official temporary duty or authorized sick leave and its method cannot change if any travel has ever been performed.
