Personally Procured Move (PPM) Estimator

This estimator tool should not be used to calculate local moves and will not accurately calculate estimates for PPMs outside of the "lower 48" (U.S.) states. Please contact your local personal property office for local PPM rate questions, or if you plan to do a PPM outside of the lower 48 states.

For your upcoming move, get an estimate for how much the government will pay you if you choose to "do it yourself."

You can use this money to cover the cost of hiring packers, renting moving trucks, and so on. If you spend less to move than the government will incentivize you to move yourself, you get to pocket the difference!


Note: This tool only provides an estimate of what you might receive if you decide to do a personally procured move. Your actual incentive amount will be calculated before taxes, using the current DPS rates, on the day you schedule your move. Rates vary based on carrier availability, your selected move date (i.e., peak vs. non-peak season rates), distance traveled, and the actual weight of your shipment.


Please note that any incentive payment received, as a result of your move, may be subject to federal, state, and local income taxes.
