How to Make a PCS Binder


Every PCS move is different for each military family. There are lots of variables that come into play-CONUS to OCONUS, movers vs DITY. How do you stay organized? A great way is to create a PCS Binder and you will have everything you need right at your fingertips!


First things you'll need:

1) 3 Ring Binder (with a zipper) or an accordion style file folder

2) Sheet protectors

3) Zipper Pouch

4) Dividers with tabs

5) Extras ie: binder clips, paper clips, pens/highlighters, calculator


Ideas to organize your binder:

-Important documents (Birth/marriage certificates, SS cards, passports, etc

-Military orders (have multiple copies!)

-Auto/home information (insurance, shipping info, etc)

-Checklists (check out https://planmymove.militaryonesource.mil to make a personalized one)

-Medical records (for your pets too!)

-School Records

-Moving documents (high value sheet, inventory sheets, etc)

-Travel documents


This is a great list to get you started and on your way to being organized. Moving can be stressful, but if you take the time to prepare and make checklists, the process will be much smoother!
