Calculate the cost of your Personally Procured Move
If you’re moving with the military and plan on doing the work yourself, you’re going to be embarking on a Personally Procured Move, or PPM. Some people call these DITY moves, or Do-It-Yourself moves. No matter what you call it, it’s vital to understand how much it costs. The government reimburses you 95% what it would have cost to move you themselves. If you’re doing a DITY move instead of letting the government move you, then you’ll definitely want to stay within that 95% payout. If you calculate your DITY move costs, you can stay in your budget.
