Army Emergency Relief is another resource that can be used in case of a financial emergency. It is a nonprofit organization that can provide financial assistance to meet unforeseen required travel and maintenance related expenses such as transportation, lodging or food, when applicable due to extraordinary costs involved with a permanent change of station. Army Emergency Relief provides financial assistance to eligible soldiers and their dependents. The primary mission is to provide financial assistance to soldiers, active and retired, family members, widows and orphans in times of valid emergency needs. AER's Education Assistance Program is a secondary mission to help army families with the cost of undergraduate level education.
Assistance is provided in over 30 different assistance categories:
Privately Owned Vehicle
Scholarship program for Dependents
Who is Eligible to Apply to AER
Active duty Soldiers, single or married, and their dependents. Army National Guard and Army Reserves soldiers on continuous active duty for more than 30 days and their dependents. Soldiers retired from active duty for longevity or physical disability and their dependents. ARNG and USAR soldiers who retired at age 60 and their dependents. Surviving spouses and orphans of soldiers who died while on active duty or after they retired.
Financial Assistance and How to Apply
AER can help with emergency financial needs in over 30 different categories which include basic living, medical, privately owned vehicle, unforeseen emergencies and other types of unexpected situations.
For more information Soldiers may contact the Army Community Service Financial Readiness Program and AER at Rose Barracks (BLDG 322) at 09641-70-599-1101, or the ACS Satellite Office at Tower Barracks (BLDG 244) at 09641-70-526-4403 or the ACS Satellite Office at Hohenfels (BLDG 10) at 09641-708-4860.
Soldiers can also submit their request via AER remote assistance portal at www.armyemergencyrelief.org
Assistance is given in the form of an interest-free loan, grant, or part loan and part grant. Grants are assessed based on the service member's financial hardship and ability to repay the interest free loan. AER officers will review the service member's budget and supporting documentation when making a grant determination. Service members may use the Company Commander and First Sergeant Quick Assist Program or through Direct Access. All soldiers, regardless of rank and grade, are allowed direct access to AER without unit commander’s review and approval with the following safeguards: soldiers in the grades of E1 through E4 must have completed Initial Entry Training. All soldiers must have a minimum of 12 months' Time in Service or have completed IET, whichever is greater. Regardless of rank, financial assistance will be limited to two requests for assistance, loan or grant, within a 12 month period without the commander or first sergeant review. Soldiers who exhibit “High Risk” behaviors for financial problems will require the unit commander’s review and approval/concurrence.
If you are not within a 50 mile radius of a military installation, you may contact the American Red Cross, available 24 hours, at 877-272-7337. They will in turn contact HQ AER and, upon approval, provide the needed assistance.

Even with a well-planned move, you can encounter emergencies. Be sure not to pack important documents in your household goods. Be sure to keep all important papers on hand (MAKE SURE IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS ARE HAND CARRIED ON THE PLANE AND NOT IN CHECKED BAGGAGE). Make sure you have important information such as the Staff Duty Officer, your unit and your sponsor's phone number. Your sponsor can be invaluable in case of an emergency while in transit.
If a service member encounters problems such as passport and visa problems, they can contact the Army Travel Assistance Center.
