Military & Family Readiness Center
To help budget your move wisely, contact your local Military & Family Readiness Center and sign up for classes and counseling sessions on your permanent change of station. Even if you are an experienced mover, you need to know the most current and up-to-date allowances and benefits available. Remember, you normally incur expenses which will not be fully covered by your PCS entitlements. A good rule of thumb is to have at least enough savings to cover cost of living expenses for 90 days.
At Luke Air Force Base, the LM&FRC offers many programs to help you become financially fit. A budget can be the best indicator of what you need to do with your money – savings, investing, paying down consumer debt, etc. – and help you plan accordingly!
