Also, I’m trying my hardest to keep busy, but the kids are so little and don’t understand where Daddy is…do you have any resources that I can look into on how to help them cope during this time he is away. Generally, his pay will be updated with the next pay cycle but it can also depend on when the changes are made.
For instance, if he updates Finance on the 12th of the month, it should kick in by the 1st of the next month.
If it were me, I would wait until after the deployment is over so you can really spend time together in that first year of marriage. Hi, my fiance is at BCT right now – graduates in August, then heads to AIT in VA.
I would like to offer one piece of advice though outside of the actual benefits.
The first year of marriage can be difficult with all of the adjustments that come along with it.
My question is…we have 3 kids together and are planning on getting married after BCT graduation, how long will it take (roughly) for all the pay/benefits, etc to kick in?
If I have kids from a previous marriage…they be covered as well (if we are married) Any help would be greatly appreciated! Once you are married, his stepchildren will be covered under Tricare.
