PCS Entitlements / Advances, TLE and Separation Leave Calculator

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

The 2021 PCS Entitlements / Advances, TLE & Separation Leave CalculatorFile in MS Excel Format is now online. YN2 Amato of Air Station Miami is the creator of this calculator. Petty Officer Amato has done some amazing work with this Excel document for PCS entitlements. As many of you may there is a lot of confusion about TLE and we think this calculator will help with the understanding. YN2 Amato took the challenge and never gave up. Not only has he created a document that we all can use, but he is now one of the TLE experts. Great job YN2, we appreciate it!

Updated (04 March 2021): 

  • You can now separate the advances from Air Per diem, which is useful for flights going OConus. A note on the bottom sheet will also help member's understand we can't predict rates for Oconus units months ahead of time so when they file their claims, they will get the actual amount.
  • You can build out a member's TLE game plan separately from who they are claiming for travel ( this should be useful for mbr to mbr)
  • VPC Guide that shows and display address of the most common VPC's we use in the Coast Guard.
  • Updated themes.

This calculator and others are available on the PPC Travel web page in the "General Travel and Contact Information" section.
