Before you make your move into this high-cost area, contact your local family/community service personal financial counselor. If at all possible you should start putting some money aside in a savings account to prepare for the move. You may wish to request an advance from your Finance Office to be used for temporary lodging, housing costs and deposits at your new duty station. Just remember, advances must be repaid and should be avoided if at all possible.
