Did you know that a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) workshop is offered at every installation by the Information, Referral and Relocation (I&R) specialist?  Help yourself manage the stress by getting ahead and learning about the resources in order to have a smooth move.  Attendance is mandatory per MCO 1754.10A, and spouses are highly encouraged to attend with their Marine as well.

During the workshop subject matter experts will provide information on:

  • Household goods allowances
  • Housing at your gaining installation
  • How to calculate what personal costs you will incur, and which expenses can be charged to your Government travel card
  • School Liaison Office resources
  • Spouse employment resources
  • How a sponsor can assist you
  • Information on moving with pets
  • Information about Lending Locker availability
  • Program information and point of contact (POC) lists for your gaining installation
  • ‘Must Know’ lists for moving overseas

In addition, your I&R specialist will connect you to online resources to help your PCS go smoothly. 

Not moving to a Marine Corps installation?  The PCS workshop is still for you!  Your I&R specialist can provide you with sister service resources and POC information.

Currently on a sister service installation?  PCS workshops are offered by all relocation offices regardless of the branch of service.

If you are stationed remotely, you can call MARFORRES at 866-305-9058 for relocation as well as I&R services.

You are not alone in your move!  If you’re not sure where to start, contact your installation’s Information, Referral, and Relocation office with questions.
