ACS discusses AER, employment, SHARP, more

Audrey Peterson-Hosto
ACS EFMP Manager

AER has two types of available loans
Army Emergency Relief, AER, is a non-profit organization housed by the Army. AER extends no-interest, emergency loans to active duty, dependents, retirees, National Guard and Army Reserves on active duty for more than 30 consecutive days and on USC Title 10 orders. Orders that read USC Title 32 are ineligible for AER assistance.

As a reminder, there are two types of AER loans, the Regular AER Loan, AER Form 700; and the Commander’s Referral Loan, AER Form 600.

AER Form 700 has a no-limit amount and requires all supporting documents be submitted at the time of request. Sergeants E5 and above are permitted to sign their own AER Form 700. This limits waiting time for signatures and allows the service member to respond quickly to the unforeseen situation. The Commander’s Referral, AER Form 600, is limited to $1,500 and requires the first sergeant’s or commander’s signature.

Both loans are subject to review by the AER officer to ensure the request for emergency assistance is legitimate and is incompliance with AER Regulation 930-4. For additional information, go to the AER website, www.aerhq.org, or call 520.533.2330 for specific information.

Army policy promotes sensitive care and confidential reporting for victims of sexual assault and accountability for those who commit these crimes.
