Inprocessing Procedures

All soldiers arriving to Fort Belvoir will report to their assigned units before inprocessing. The Fort Belvoir Human Resource Directorate (HRD), located in Building 213, provides both in and out processing. A check list must be obtained in order to begin either process.

Prior to inprocessing with HRD, Soldiers must stop at the Tricare Support Service Center in DeWitt Army Community Hospital. Soldiers must enroll themselves and their family members (if applicable) into Tricare/Health Net Federal Services before going to HRD.

For newly arrived personnel, a Newcomers' Briefing is held on the first Monday of each month at Sosa Community Center, Bldg 200, at 9:00 a.m. If the first Monday is a holiday, the briefing will be held on the following Monday. All military personnel, civilians, and their family members are encouraged to attend.

Finance Inprocessing

Finance inprocessing is done through coordination with the Soldier's unit PAC. It is important to note that the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) at the local rate will not start until the Soldier signs into their gaining unit.

Married Service members

If a Soldier gets married prior to PCSING, he/she must notify their commander prior to traveling to ensure proper documentation is made and procedures are followed.
