Navy Family Information
We can provide you with information on how to obtain ID cards, pay information, medical/dental care, and other family benefits. Fleet and Family Support Center has a staff of Case Managers that were hired to assist Navy Families after the hurricanes of 2005. Due to the ongoing success of the program the case managers job has gone beyond hurricane recovery and they are able to provide resource and referral support on issues that are not storm related with great success. They work with any member of the Military Family.
