Quantico is considered a high cost living area and you are encouraged to shop the area, before you decide to sign any rental agreements or contracts pertaining to living accommodations. Check with the local Housing Office to see if they have a referral list available. If no list is available, make sure you place your name on the housing list once you have checked in. The closer you are to base, the higher the cost due to the convenience of the location. Remember to make sure that you have a military clause in your rental agreement. If you are considering purchasing a home, a great resource is VirginiaHousing.com. If you are a first time home buyer, they offer a class online and in person. It is a one day class if done in person. Completion of their home buying course entitles you to become eligible for all Virginia Housing loan programs.
If you have your automobile financed you are required to have full coverage per Virginia State Law. If the automobile has a free and clear title (you owe no money on the vehicle), you may be able to choose just liability insurance.
It is advised that you maintain your health insurance coverage from your last duty station area until you check in at Quantico. This will help you maintain coverage as you travel. If you cancel the insurance prior to leaving your old duty station, you are no longer in the system and would not have coverage if an accident occurred. It is advised that you check with your current insurance carrier to make sure you comply with the policy you have as far as coverage is concerned.
Plan your move as far ahead as possible, and refrain from taking advanced pay. If you have to take advance pay make sure that you incorporate the repayment amount into your new budget. If you have any questions please contact the Personal Finance Manager.
