Allowances: Move-in Housing Allowance

May. 10, 2010 - 03:16PM   |   Last Updated: May. 10, 2010 - 03:16PM  |  

A move-in housing allowance is available to members moving into their first quarters for an overseas assignment, if they also receive an overseas housing allowance. There are three kinds of move-in housing allowance:

Miscellaneous. A fixed-rate payment reflecting average costs incurred in a geographic region to make a home habitable. It changes with inflation and currency exchange rates.

Rent. Covers all reasonable rent-related expenses that are fixed, one-time charges, such as real estate agents' fees for helping renters find housing.

Security. Covers expenses for security-related enhancements when quarters must be modified to minimize exposure to terrorist or criminal threat.
