Although military members who are notified of a new assignment are encouraged to plan financially for their move, the AFAS may be able to provide emergency financial assistance on a case-by-case basis if a financial emergency arises. If an emergency occurs en route to your next duty station, contact the nearest military base, if possible. If no military installation is located in the immediate vicinity of the location of the emergency, military members are encouraged to contact the American Red Cross, which can act as a liaison between you and the various relief agencies (AFAS, AER, NMCRS and CGMA).
