The U.S. Navy has expanded the eligible categories for advanced dependent travel (ADT) and delayed dependent travel (DDT). For permanent change of station (PCS) moves within the 50 states, the policy allows for dependent travel of up to six months before or after the sponsoring Sailor's PCS move in the following situations: spousal employment or education, dependents in elementary or secondary school (K-12), dependent enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program, or caring for an immediate family member with a chronic or long-term illness. Requests for DDT or ADT must be submitted to Navy Personnel Command (PERS-451). For more information, email NXAG_N130C@navy.mil.
