    How do you pocket the food per diem?

    As I understand it, the FAA will riemburse you after your first 15 days and then monthly after that with a travel voucher and reciepts for your food per diem.

    My question is, if they require reciepts how do you pocket any of the money you don't spend. I will be living at Kims Place and I have been told by multiple people she keeps everything stocked and full. Obviously trying to save some money anywhere I can.

    you dont need any receipts for the food you buy. theyll just give you the fixed $40 a day for food. figure you'll get to pocket a nice amount by the end of your time here pending you dont go out all the time for food.

    You don't need receipts. You just file your voucher and you get the full food amount for each day you are filing for.

    random question...do they give you the per diem on a 7 day week basis or only the 5 working days?

    Re: How do you pocket the food per diem?

    Not only can you pocket some per diem by not spending the full meal allowance but you can also pocket unused housing allowance. For example, the current maximum long-term housing allowance is $50.40 per day. If you stay at a property that charges $40 then you pocket $10.40 per day. Winchester Run has a special new hire ATC rate starting at $35 which would allow you to save $15 per day just on the housing portion of your per diem alone; this adds up to an extra $450 per month! Winchester Run has all of the basis ammenities you expect and then some. Give Winchester Run a look and see why so many students choose us!

    Re: How do you pocket the food per diem?

    It's quiet simple actually...If your there 35 days for training that 7 weeks which equates to 49 days, you can buy Ramen Noodles 3 for $1.00, that's breakfast, lunch, and supper for $1.08(Tax included) X 49 days = $52.92. Per diem is $40 X 49 = $1,960 - $52.92 = $1907.08 That's how you get the most out of your per diem!
