Moving is never easy, and military moving is no exception. That is why the dity move program was created. It is a program designed to help ease the stresses of a military move with a cash reimbursement opportunity.
The dity program, or a dity move (do it yourself move) is a voluntary government program that reimburses a military service person if they handle their own move or hire their own movers. Although not typically recommended for overseas relocation (due to the complexities of moving and living abroad), a military dity move (also known as a personally procured move) is a great way to help remove a portion of the financial burden of a move while putting a few extra dollars into your pocket.
Let us take a look at how a dity move works with a dity move calculator: military and service members can get up to 100 percent reimbursement of the Government Constructive Cost if they hire their own movers, or a payment of 95 percent of the Government Constructive Cost if you move yourself. This means that in a dity move the government picks up the entire tab if you arrange your own moving company, or alternatively, the government pays you, the service member, 95 percent of the military move of what it would pay a mover to move you. Sounds like a win win!
