THE FOREIGN SERVICE JOURNAL

EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT

(MED) and Travel and

Transportation Manage-

ment (TTM). Staff in these

offices can answer ques-

tions that are not specifi-

cally allowance questions,

but often come up in the

context of allowances.

In addition, if readers

have a specific question

about the DSSR, they can

contact us at AllowancesO@

state.gov.

It is probably worth mentioning again

that while our office sets policy and rates,

we do not control funding; nor are we

involved in the reimbursement process.

Depending on the allowance, funding

usually comes from the regional bureau

or a centrally funded account.

When it comes to claiming an allow-

ance, your human resources officer at

post can often help in putting together

an application package, while the FMO is

often the one responsible for approving

reimbursement.

FLO’s Education and

Youth (E&Y) Team works

closely with the Office of

Allowances and can help

parents find the portion of

the DSSR that covers the

education allowance.

Contact E&Y at

FLOAsk

Education@state.gov,

by

phone at (202) 647-1076, or

online at

education.

Editor’s Note:

The Office of Allowances

deals purely with regulations and would

not comment on Special Needs Education

Allowance processing. The

FSJ

will run

an update on issues surrounding SNEA

processing in a future article.
