Effective Date of PCS Orders
Personnelman 3 & 2 - Military manual for government personnel administration
Permanent Change of Station Allowances
of the effective date of PCS orders is contained in JFTR Volume 1, Appendix A, and the glossary of this training manual. For orders amended, modified, canceled, or revoked,  the  effective  date  is  per  JFTR  Paragraph U2140-A.   The   effective   date   of   orders   for   some specific  types  of  orders  is  shown  in  the  following paragraphs: Orders  Involving  Change  of  Home  Port.  The effective date of orders involving a change in home port of  a  ship,  ship-based  staff,  squadron,  or  other afloat-based mobile unit is the date announced by the Chief of Naval Operation (CNO), normally by message. Orders  Involving  Change  for  PDS  Location  of Shore-Based Mobile Units. The effective date of orders involving a change of PDS location of a shore-based mobile unit is the date following the announcement of the change by the CNO on which the servicemember must commence travel to the new station for the purpose of remaining and performing normal duties. This is regardless  of  whether  the  travel  is  commenced  before or after the announced effective date of the change. Release From Active Duty Orders. The effective date of orders for release from active duty is the date of release. REIMBERSEMENT RULES FOR PRIVATELY-OWNED CONVEYANCE (POC) TRAVEL The general reimbursement rules for POC travel incident  to  PCS  travel  are  based  on  the  number  of people traveling at the same time. Some rules are as follows: . If servicemember and dependents travel between PDSs in one POC, the per mile rate paid is for one POC based  on  the  number  of  travelers.  If  the  servicemember travels  separately  from  dependents,  the  servicemember is paid a per mile rate. . The payment for dependents is a per mile rate based on the number of dependents traveling together. No specific authority for more than one POC is needed as the group (the dependents in the case) are using only one POC. Per diem is also paid. . Unless authority is granted for payment based on two POCs, and the servicemember and dependents travel together using more than one POC (or if five or more  dependents  travel  together  using  more  than  one POC), the per mile rate for one POC and the number of travelers is paid. . Payment may be made for use of more than one POC by the group traveling together only if permission is  received  under  JFTR,  paragraph  U5205-A2.  If permitted, the per mile rate is paid for each POC based on  the  group  traveling  together. l  Commanding  officers  may  approve  payment  for the use of more than one POC by a group traveling together if there are five or more travelers in the group. They may also approve payment when a dependent needs  special  accommodations.  Specifics  are  in  the JFTR. . If less than five travelers are involved, payment for   use   of   more   than   one   POC   is   unlikely.   A servicemember,  who  believes  a  valid  reason  exists  for needing more than one POC for less than five travelers, may  submit  a  request  via  the  servicemember’s commanding officer to the Chief of Naval Personnel (PERS  201)  either  before  or  after  execution  of  orders. Details  must  be  provided.  Owning  a  compact  car(s)  is not a valid reason. . In the situations described in JFTR, paragraphs U5205-A2C  or  U5205-A2e  (dependents  travel separately  from  the  servicemember  due  to  official reasons), reimbursement for such travel is not made unless   supported   by   a   statement   from   the service  member  certifying  the  circumstance  involved. Additional  information  concerning  translation of a privately-owned vehicle (pov) is contained in the PCS allowance section discussed later in the chapter. HOUSEHOLD GOODS SHIPMENT AND STORAGE ENTITLEMENT POLICY Some   of   the   conditions   under   which servicemembe  are  entitled  to  HHG  shipment  and storage   are   listed   in   this   section. Additional information  concerning  HHG  shipment  and  storage  is contained  in  Article  6810115  of  the  MILPERSMAN. Servicemembe are entitled to shipment of HHG incident to PCS orders according to chapter 5, Part D, of the JFTR volume 1. Shipment of a lesser weight of HHG is authorized incident to temporary duty (TEMDU) or temporary additional  duty  (TEMADD)  according  to  chapter  4,  Part H of the JFTR, Volume 1. Instead  of  shipment,  nontemporary  storage  (NTS) is authorized in connection with PCS orders according to JFTR, paragraph U5380. 12-15
