Monitor your Leave and Earnings Statement at least once a month to ensure you are receiving the correct pay and allowances. Whether overpaid or underpaid, you will fare better by identifying it early; if overpaid, the money will likely be taken back all at once, so always have some money set aside for this or for other emergencies. At relocation time, members often take advance pay, which is a no-interest "loan" on income not yet earned, and it must be paid back. Before taking advance pay, carefully consider your budget (your Military and Family Readiness Center and Military One Source is available for help with this) to determine whether you can afford this new debt.

NM Auto Insurance requirements:
New Mexico law requires drivers to have auto liability insurance. New Mexico is considered a traditional tort state, which means if you are in an accident with another driver his or her insurance company covers your losses or you have to file a lawsuit to recover disputed damages for injuries and property. New Mexico law mandates that auto insurance policies provide the following:
Liability - Minimum Required:
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Insured motorists who are concerned about being in an accident with an uninsured motorist can purchase this optional coverage to ensure their losses are covered.
Medical Payments Coverage or MPC. This optional coverage pays for reasonable expenses you and your passengers incur because of injury in a motor vehicle accident, regardless of fault. Coverage amounts available vary from company to company. You may wish to purchase it if you do not have health insurance, or to supplement any health insurance you do have.
Collision & Comprehensive. Collision insurance pays for damages to your car caused by another vehicle, an object or a rollover. Its not required by law, but most lenders require collision coverage for financing. Comprehensive insurance protects you against damage to your own car from perils like fire, theft, glass damage, hail, wind, flood or vandalism. Comprehensive isn't required either. If you have an older car, consider dropping these types of coverage to save on insurance premiums.
