The Air Force Aid Society, or AFAS, can assist with emergency financial needs such as rent/mortgage, utilities, food, gas, car repair, emergency travel, funeral expenses, non-TRICARE covered dental/medical expenses (not cosmetic), childcare, car payment/insurance, and cell phone bill. Other needs will be considered on a case by case basis. Legal fees, credit card payments, reimbursement for emergency travel do not meet the criteria for AFAS assistance.
