If you were married before you received your orders, you’re fine. Look and make sure you’re authorized to travel “with dependents” on the orders.

Then visit https://www.smartwebmove.navsup.navy.mil/swm/ to set up the household goods move.

Ask the personal property office in P-cola if you have questions about weight allowance or per diem.

    Were your orders accompanied to A School? If so then you will get the move funded from Pcola to San Diego. It will include the shipment of household goods (PPM) and the drive to there. You will need to go to JPPSO and set up the move or online through http://www.move.mil For Per Diem it is $ 129 for AD and 75% for those over 12, 50% for under 12. That covers hotel & food when going there. MALT is for mileage and I believe it is around $ .19 per mile. You will be given about 300 miles travel per day, so it can take around 6 to 7 days to do it. If you get there and report in, 4 days then you will only get 4 days of Per Diem. You can do a partial PPM so you do have the basics there. Ask for an advance on Travel Pay & DLA. You will be covered up to 10 days of TLE which is hotels in either Pcola or San Diego or a combination of both, after that you pay out of pocket. BAH will be based on Pcola zip code until you report in to San Diego. You or the spouse needs to take the moving class to get everything going and approved.

    Now if the orders weren’t accompanied they will only pay for you and your things to be moved.
