DLA ELIGIBILITY LIMITATIONS AND INFORMATION

National Guard and Reserve service members entering or leaving active duty service are not eligible for DLA, except by special authorization.

A partial DLA of $581.51 is paid to military service members who are instructed to occupy or leave Government family-type quarters due to privatization, renovation or any other reason other than PCS.

Current rates for DLA can be found on the DoD Per Diem, Travel and Transportation Allowance Committee DLA website.

FOREIGN LANUAGE PROFICIENCY PAY/BONUS

Military service members may be entitled to Foreign Language Proficiency Pay (FLPP) if they are certified by the individual service secretary to be proficient in foreign language. Military service members also have to be receiving basic pay to be eligible.

Every service secretary certifies FLPP annually based on qualifications in a career linguist duty specialty, attendance in specified training, and assignment to duties requiring foreign language expertise.

Military service members receive FLPP in addition to all other pay and allowances.

FLPP LIMITATIONS

Military service members cannot receive both FLPP I (Career Linguist) and FLPP II (Non-Career) simultaneously, although service members can potentially receive FLPP for multiple languages, not exceeding $1000.00 per month for Active service members and $500.00 per month for Guard and Reserve.
