Marines Will Cover up to $500 in Licensing Fees for Spouses Under New Policy | Military

The Marine Corps has announced its policy for covering the cost of spouses’ professional credentials and licensing fees following a permanent change-of-station move.

In a Marine administrative message issued Thursday, Marine and Family Member Programs Director Marie Balocki said the service will reimburse up to $500 per PCS to cover the costs of professional licensing or re-certification, to include exams and registration fees, after a move.

The new policy aims to reduce military spouse unemployment, estimated to be between 16% and 24%, and follows a congressional mandate in the fiscal 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The Army and Air Force announced details of their reimbursement plans earlier this month; the Navy is expected to follow suit next month.
