Child Care for PCS Program Change

The Child Care for PCS Program is intended to help relieve some of the stress felt by Air Force families in the process of a PCS move.  The Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) will pay up to 20 hours of child care (per child) in licensed Family Child Care (FCC) homes on base, or in Air Force affiliated homes off base.  Eligible families may receive a certificate both at the base the family is departing from and the base where the family is arriving, if both bases offer the program.  Certificates are valid only at the base at which they are issued and unused hours do not transfer from one base to another.  Air Force families with PCS orders are eligible to receive a Child Care for PCS Certificate from Airman & Family Readiness Center staff for use within 60 days of the family’s departure from or arrival at the base.  A list of FCC providers is available from the FCC Coordinator, Elida Loredo or at the Airman & Family Readiness Center. 

AFAS is expanding the Child Care for PCS program to include Air Force members with retirement orders, to include TDRL orders. In addition to Air Force members with PCS orders, those members who are about to retire may be issued a Child Care for PCS certificate for 20 hours of child care at the base they are departing, for use at that base only. The certificate may be issued within 60 days of their date of departure, which may be different from the date of retirement. The Child Care for PCS program does not include members who are separating from the Air Force, or members moving for reasons other than retirement or PCS.
