Get you home pay

#1
I'm posted to Warminster in September and my girlfriend and I are moving into a house in Trowbridge. It's a out 11 miles away from the camp, how much get you home pay would I get and who do I speak to to get this?

You'll not get much - the allowance starts at 9 miles away from work for a private residence and you only get it one way. It's like that because it's your choice to live there...

Funny enough, the Admin Office is your first port of call - but you're a bright young thruster so you knew that anyway...

Enjoy Warminster, I was there for 4 yrs. Enjoyed my time there. Not sure Trowbridge would of been at the top of my list of places to stay though. A few nicer places around that area

Lateral thinking - By posting on here with a username like Sean63airbornesqn, his admin office already know what he wants when he eventually walks through the door.

Quite clever, really. :grin:

You wont get any GYH allowance (to claim GYH(T) the property must be a minimum of 50 miles from your unit) - whay you might be entitled to is HDT (Private) provided you can provide the documents listed in the JSP 752 (namely, Council Tax Bill, Rent agreement which must have your name on it and/or utility bills for the property) You will pay a 9 mile personnal contribution each way which will cost you approx £27 a month. Hope this helps !!!

No need for all of the documents, eg, Council Tax etc. They are only needed for GYH, not HDT, unless the unit insist on them.

Rod924, Yeah ... seems they didnt like the name (apparently it was a little too ambiguous).... so it was renamed at Home to Duty (HDT) ... still, it kept someone in a job for a week whilst they thought of a new name !!!!

Good, my memory is ok after all! But I can see why Residence to Place of Duty is ambiguous as opposed to Home to Duty! Or, does this show a simplification in line with the falling education standards of the last 15 years? Discuss.

My thoughts on the regular army have been confirmed - institutionalised and stuck in a benefit culture. If a civvy goes to work in a company car then he/she is taxed on the mileage, and certainly cannot claim from the Boss their mileage or bus fares. So why should you? 'Scratter' - a Yorkshire name for a 'waster'

Unless you're an MP, of course, in which case you can claim residence to duty. About a dozen times if you want. And it doesn't even have to be from your own home!

Buy a bike from Halfords. Some of the roads and towns in that neck of the woods get terribly clogged up with tourist traffic.

He's not going to work in a company car...

And just for the record, most Civil Service/Local Government (OK not all) pay their staff MMA - I know this as my ex wife was Civil Service and mum was Local Government and they both received it when using their own vehicles for work purposes (not comuting to and from work mind)

Welcome to the real world. I can claim a mileage allowance if I use my own vehicle for work, but getting to, and home from, my place of work is my own problem. Where to live is your choice - you could have picked somewhere closer.
