The Personally Procured Move (PPM): An Overview

family moving

The Personally-Procured-Move (PPM) allows you to be reimbursed by the government for moving your belongings yourself. You’re eligible if you make a Permanent Change of Station (PCS), Temporary Duty (TDY), or Temporary Additional Duty (TAD) move, or separate, retire and move to or from government quarters under orders.

Please note: The program is voluntary and you can use the entire PPM Program of just part of it. For example, you can ship some household goods on a Government Bill of Lading (GBL) and the balance, up to the allowed weight allowance, under the PPM program.

Under the PPM program, you may use your own vehicle, a rental, or a borrowed vehicle. You’re entitled to travel allowances, per diem and mileage through the government. You also receive $25,000 of insurance coverage. An advance monetary allowance for your move can be paid under certain circumstances. Ask your transportation office representative for more details on these benefits.

In the next article, we’ll discuss the four types of PPM moves.
