The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
It's called SSSA - but I can't remember what it stands for! Depending on your rank, you are given a flat near work and an allowance for food.
I'll try and find the reference because I am likely to be in a similar situation...
Is this a Wah? 45 mile commute too far, posted somewhere without a Mess.
Your Avatar would seem to be apt.
Many thanks. Does this stand even if I am voluntaryunaccompanied, own house which is within 50 miles (but 1 1/2 hrs travelling).
Reference would be very helpful.
What is your point? More to the point, what is your answer?
You don't know, do you?
I believe that if your house is within the 50 mile radius you are not entitled. I checked this out as my house is over 50 miles from my current post, but commuting takes me 1hr each way.
DrainSniffer is right on the money. The 50 mile limit is the clincher. However you may be able to argue the case that your circumstances warrant a waiver, but it will have to be argued. You live within 50miles of your new posting, you have no automatic right to SSSA or FIA.
Is it not 50 miles and/or 1 and a half hour travel time? Not sure, just asking, as I know someone who has the full SSSA and FIA entitlement and his house is only 43 miles away but it takes him over an hour and a half to get to work. (yes he does live at the back of beyond)
