We recommend that you make hotel reservations well in advance of your arrival. During the PCS season, on-post lodging is often fully booked. If you have reservations, please make sure you keep your confirmation number with you, as this is your proof of reservation. Without your reservation number, your room may be assigned to someone else.
If you are married en route to a new assignment, complete a DA Form 5960 with your gaining command. Have your S-1 office submit the form with your marriage certificate to iPerms and to the finance office on a transmittal letter. Take a copy of your form and marriage certificate with you to in-process finance. This will expedite your pay adjustment. You and your spouse will also need to obtain a dependent ID card and update your DEERS. Either make an appointment with the ID card office or follow the walk-in instructions. Two forms of ID (spouse) and your marriage certificate will be required to obtain a dependent ID card.
If you get married prior to PCS, go to your unit S1 for instructions on adding your spouse to your records/orders. It’s essential for your PCS orders to reflect that you have a "dependent"; dependents will change your PCS entitlements. The military will not pay travel and/or lodging for your dependents if they do not reflect on your orders.
