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.
