Useful Information for Newly Commissioned Officers
Pay for Travel of Dependents
air.   The following examples show how to determine the effective date of your orders: 1.   Travel by POC. 2 Feb Date you report 31 Jan Less 2 days’ travel time 1 Feb Add 1 day (You add 1 day because you count the day you report.) The effective date of your orders is 1 February. 2.   Travel by commercial air. 1 Feb Date you report 31 Jan Less 1 day’s travel time 1 Feb Add 1 day The effective date of your orders is 1 February. 3.   Travel by POC. 29 Jan Date you report 27 Jan Less 2 days’ travel time 28 Jan Add 1 day The effective date of your orders is 28 January. The  number  of  days’  leave  authorized  has  no effect on the effective date of orders.  You must report on  or  before,  but  not  later  than  (NLT),  the  effective reporting date specified in your orders.   However, if you  report  early,  the  effective  reporting  date  will  be changed to the date you report. TRAVEL EXPENSES This  section  will  introduce  you  to  some  of  the travel rules most applicable to new Naval Academy, NROTC,  OIS,  AOCS,  and  OCS  graduates.   What  is said here does not apply to everyone in the Navy and, in many cases, was modified to fit your special case. We also assume that you will receive the normal or standard orders; that is, orders to duty aboard a ship at sea, which means a permanent change of station.  If you   are   an   exception   who   receives   orders   to temporary duty or temporary additional duty, contact your disbursing office or transportation officer for the correct up-to-date interpretation of the  Joint Federal Travel Regulations (JFTR), volume I.  Do not listen to any “would be” expert. PAY FOR YOUR TRAVEL On a permanent change of station involving travel within  the  continental  United  States,  the  Navy  will reimburse you in one of the following two ways: If  you  furnish  or  choose  your  own  method  of transportation  by  POC,  you  will  receive  a  mileage allowance for the number of travel days authorized or used,  whichever  is  less,  to  cover  your  entire  travel expense.   The mileage and per diem allowances vary by    your    number    of    dependents    and    travel arrangements. If the Navy furnishes your transportation, you will  receive  a  per  diem  allowance  for  the  day  of departure and/or the day of arrival at your permanent station  if  you  are  in  a  travel  status  and  government quarters  are  not  available.     Under  the  per  diem system, certain miscellaneous expenses, such as taxi fares  and  baggage  handling  tips,  are  reimbursable. You  must  have  receipts  for  lodging.     Receipts  for transportation  procured  for  fares  over  $25  are  also required. If you receive orders to a naval station, facility, or a  ship  overseas,  your  port  of  call  assignments, reservations, and flights will normally be arranged by the school from which you receive your commission. You  may  furnish  or  choose  your  own  method  of transportation  to  the  port  of  embarkation.     The Military  Airlift  Command  (MAC)  will  provide  air transportation from your embarkation point. When   you   receive   your   orders,   study   them carefully  to  plot  your  various  stops  along  the  way. Then discuss your proposed trip with your disbursing officer or transportation officer.  Usually a trip can be made more than one way, and sometimes a different route may mean a difference in cost to you.  You may want to obtain a transportation request (TR) and per diem;   or   you   may   find   the   mileage   allowance, advanced or reimbursed, more suitable. DIRECT ROUTES NOT REQUIRED Do  not  infer  from  this  discussion  that  you  must follow  a  set  route  when  traveling  from  one  place  to another.  You may take a circuitous route, stop over, or double back.   Unless directed to travel by a specific mode  or  transportation,  you  can  drive,  fly,  or  ride  a train or bus.  But the Navy will limit reimbursement to 2-9
