Relocation travel process

Reimbursement for travel includes new regular hires, term assignment hires, post-doctoral or advance study employees, and long-term visiting staff members.

Eligible expenses are paid post-hire only.

Relocation travel will be reimbursed only when the following process is used.

  1. After receiving an offer letter from Human Resources, the Relocation Office will send you materials to review.
    • If you are a long-term visiting staff member, contact the Relocation Office for additional requirements.
  2. At least 2 to 4 weeks before relocating, contact the Relocation Office to discuss your plans.
  3. After relocating, hiring on at the Lab, and obtaining a badge, make an appointment with the Relocation Office to review your receipts and complete the applicable reimbursement claim forms.
  4. The Relocation Office sends the completed reimbursement claim forms and receipts to the Payroll Office for processing and payment.
  5. The Payroll Office processes the claim based on Federal travel regulations and reimburses the payee.
