An advance decision was requested regarding a member's claim for temporary lodging allowance. The member married after being transferred to his new duty station, and his wife traveled to his duty station at the member's personal expense. The claim for temporary lodging allowance for the period between her arrival and the completion of the arrangements for permanent living accommodations may not be paid since the member had no dependent on the effective date of his transfer, and his vacating of the lodgings he originally occupied while looking for family quarters was not for reasons beyond the control of the member.
