Summary: Beginning May 7, Airmen and Guardians with dependents executing a permanent change of station to a professional military education or training location are now authorized to collect per diem in the amount of the basic allowance for housing without-dependent rate. Airmen and Guardians may collect this per diem if they are at the training location for less than a year and if they are returning to their prior duty location. To receive this benefit, the member requires orders to return to their prior duty station after they complete school or training and cannot live in no-cost government quarters. Members will receive retroactive payments if they meet the established eligibility criteria during a course they attended on or after Dec. 23, 2022. This effort does not replace the Temporary Duty Waiver for Formal Training policy, which allows Airmen and Guardians to attend courses with a duration between 141 and 180 days in a TDY status instead of a PCS status.
