Payments are typically made within 20 business days of the voucher being submitted. It is a good idea to visit your departing finance office within 30 days of your departure so they can brief you concerning your PCS pay and travel entitlements and prepare your records for departure.  Also contact your unit’s GTC coordinator within 30 days of departure to ensure your card is active, placed in Mission-Critical status and is transferred to your gaining unit.  Upon arrival, please contact your unit’s GTC coordinator to complete your card transfer and update your address.  Please note, Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) reimburses in your military pay (LES); you are required to manually pay your GTC card for TLA.  

The Defense Travel System is an online order and voucher system. The system is designed to put the member in charge, giving them the ability to know when their orders are ready to go. Once you in-process, ensure you get in touch with your unit's DTS representative to update your profile in the system. This includes adding your new e-mail address, home address, squadron, GTC information and electronic funds transfer banking information.
