During a permanent change of station move, service members should keep important paperwork with them at all times to decrease the potential for loss or identity theft.
Such paperwork includes the service member's military record, military identification cards, powers of attorney, PCS orders, travel documentation, travel receipts, marriage certificates, immunization records of children and/or pets, household goods inventory lists, credit cards and credit card statements, tax records, Social Security cards, bank information, mortgages, vehicle information, driver’s licenses, bills, an address book with information for the command sponsor, a copy of Page 2 or proof of dependents and any copies of family member medical records.
The original family medical records are shipped from the current military treatment facility to the new servicing MTF.
Family members traveling separately from the service member should maintain a copy of the service member's Page 2 (second page of the service record, which lists dependent data), the service member’s PCS orders and a power of attorney.
When receipts and travel documents are submitted to the command or any military agency, the service member or their family should keep a copy for their own records.
Temporary lodging is not available on San Diego military bases. While seeking permanent housing, military and their families are recommended to make advance reservations at either a local hotel/motel or at a Navy Lodge or Marine Corps Inn. Navy Lodges accept reservations up to one year in advance with PCS orders.
The current temporary lodging expense policy requires those traveling on PCS orders to check for availability with the Navy Lodge at area installations. If there is no availability or appropriate accommodations, the Navy Lodge will issue a certificate of non-availability in order to receive reimbursement for non-government lodging.
There are Department of Defense and Navy Lodges at Naval Base San Diego and Naval Base Coronado. Reservations can be made through the following:
San Diego hotels and motels are available in all price ranges, often more expensive than the military lodges/inns. Housing offers hotel discount – Military Value Program that offer hotel discounts for military guests. Call the San Diego Housing Welcome Center for information 619-556-8443.
Service members are strongly encouraged to ask their detaching or gaining command about temporary lodging expense or temporary lodging allowance, which can offset the cost of temporary housing at the losing or gaining duty station. This financial entitlement is obtained at the command personnel support detachment and should be applied for before expecting reimbursement for lodging costs.
If you get married before you PCS, you must inform your command and follow the procedures exactly as they are given. The military will not pay for travel and housing of your spouse if you do not follow proper procedures.
Your new command assigns a sponsor to assist with settling into your new location.
A sponsor's duties include:
Command sponsors provide valuable information to incoming personnel and their families. Check with your gaining command to identify your command sponsor or contact your command career counselor or your command sponsor coordinator to request a sponsor from your new command.
