Issue Summary

Recalculation of Dislocation Allowance (DLA)

Issue Number 504
Status Completed
Issue Title Recalculation of Dislocation Allowance (DLA)
Scope Dislocation Allowance does not meet the needs of soldiers during Permanent Change of Station moves. Currently DLA is paid at the rate of 2.5 times Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) Type II. Out of pocket relocation expenses vary by location. Relocation to high cost areas creates additional expenses in the form of initial rents, various deposits, household supplies, and other costs.
Issue Recommendation Change the calculation of DLA from 2.5 times BAH II to 2.0 times BAH.
Military Component Active Component
Demographic Group Soldiers
Subject Area Entitlements
Geographic Area Universal
Entered AFAP Mar 2002
Final Action Date Nov 2002
Accomplishments Dislocation Allowance (DLA) has not been computed at 2.5 times the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) Type II since December 1997. DLA is calculated on the baseline for each rank (set in Dec 97) which is increased by the annual percentage increase for basic pay.
