Some individuals may experience excess costs
One of the main reasons is, individuals that ETS are entitled to ship to place entered on active duty or home of record. The soldier selects an alternate location and some excess cost may incur. The shorter the distance does not necessarily mean that there will be no excess costs. Please check with the Personal Property Counselor prior to making arrangements for your move.
Another reason is overweight. Each soldier by rank has a specific weight entitlement. If you ship over your entitlement you will be charged excess costs for over weight.
Service members must pay any excess costs prior to leaving Fort Riley. Only those still in pay status may elect to have the excess costs deducted from their pay check.
