How to pay for all the travel?
If your family needs financial assistance to help pay for travel expenses before you are reimbursed, check out these options:
Government Travel Card (GTC)
- All Airmen on official government travel will be issued a GTC for permissible expenses while on official travel orders. GTCs may not be used while on leave status.
- Unpaid GTC bills charge a $29 late payment fee after it becomes 60 days delinquent. Unpaid GTC bills can impact an Airman’s personal credit score. Consult the unit’s Agency Program Coordinator for details and to be placed in Mission Critical Status prior to departure.
Base Pay Advance
- One month base pay can be advanced less deductions 30 days prior to departure or 60 days after arrival.
- Review all options before taking a PCS pay advance. This must be paid back within 12 months. Certain situations require CC signature. Contact the Finance office for more information.
