Post Allowance reduced to zero percent

The USFK commander sent a memo to employees Friday alerting them to the post allowance drop and expressing his concern on the effect it will have on civilian employees and their families. Post Allowance is granted to U.S. employees officially stationed in a foreign location where the cost of living is substantially higher than Washington, D.C. The post allowance permits employees to spend the same portion of their basic compensation for current living without incurring a reduction in living standards. The rate dropped to zero percent of spendable income on May 4, 2014. Employees will see the decrease in this allowance for the pay period ending May 17, 2014.
