    Your Unit might have local rules, where married personnel are required to provide documentary evidience of residency, however this is not a requirement of JPS 752.

    JSP Article 05.0205 C states that only PMP must have documentary evidience.

    Not sure about Local rules as this has been the case in a number of areas. Providing proof of council tax (or any other documentation evidence) is to provide proof of where your family home is, other wise the "family home" could change from week to week depending on where the SP fancied staying.

    Well no, not really. They would not be able to change their address every week would they.

    Show where in the JSP 752, it say personnel maintaining the family home, have to provide proof?

    This is not a competition. The JSP is inteperated by the user, if an AGC clerk requests to see proof of residence by means of council tax or any other docs for allowance reasons then you give the clerk the council tax bill and/or the other clerk.

    Which surely should not be a problem ...

    Who said it was a competition?

    There is no interpretation to be had here, the JPS explicitly states, that be personnel who occupy PMP, must provide proof of residency. No such stipulation for personnel who live in the family home exists.

    Therefore, any requirement for personnel to provide such proof is made at a local level.

    Married personnel do not need to supply proof of council tax to claim GYH(T).

    Try telling my admin unit that? I had to provide it on posting from one unit to another to prove I was still entitled too.

    JPS 752 Article 05.0205 C, states:
    Those claiming GYH (T) (PMP) must additionally provide the documentary evidence described at 05.0208

    Nowhere in the JSP does it say married personnel need to supply any documentary evidence, so therefore, as I have said before, any Units making personnel do so, it's because it's a local rule.

    Hi,

    I've just married my husband who is in the army. We live off camp and don't tend to spend a lot of time socialising with his colleagues (he wants to keep himself out of trouble!) so we are a bit out of the loop.

    I'm just wondering if there is anything I need to get him to do now we are married (beyond putting me down as his next of kin because I know he has done this). I have a pass for his camp for when I pick him up but I have seen people mention ID? Is this only something I would need if I lived on a camp? He is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard when it comes to this sort of thing - I do all our paperwork and stuff but I need a bit of guidance.

    Also he goes to afgan next year - are there any forums etc I should register for so I don't feel so much out on a limb?

    Also i've seen on here about forces discounts - would his green photo id card be what he would need to present if he can get money off somewhere?

    Thanks

    Pop up to your hubby's regimental families office (otherwise known as Unit Welfare Office) and ask them their advice. You could also pop into your local HIVE and see if they have anything to add. It is, quite often, a learning curve; my hubby was exactly the same when it came to all things organisational, but quite often the regiment will prompt soldiers when it comes to things like updating their wills (especially if they're off on tour) The Families Office will also know of any regimental support you can receive when he goes away, maybe there are other wives who live off camp who you can have a chat with? They often organise family Sunday lunches when there's a tour, which aren't much fun if you don't know anyone, but the families office will be able to fill you in on what's going on.

    One of the first things I did for my wife was get her a Forces Rail Card - valid for 12 months - paid for itself in 1 month; it gives up to 33% off (almost) all rail travel, including in/through london, on advance purchase and 1st class travel.

    As for discounts, most sores ask to see military ID - your husband's green phioto ID, aka, MOD 90 but some don't. often the luck of the draw. Best to take him & his ID out shopping with you!
