B-190008: Nov 30, 1977
- Full Report:
Captain R. W. Bennett, USAF, Accounting and Finance Officer for Headquaters 3d Tactical Fighter Wing, Pacific Air Force, requested an advance decision as to whether a member was entitled to a family separation allowance. Since the member provided complete support for his daughter, who was the age of majority, during the period she resided with him following his divorce and during a subsequent period while she attended college, the daughter qualified as the member's dependent for purposes of family separation allowances.
