Household Goods Claims Services
If your property is lost or damaged you have the right to file a claim directly with the transportation service provider. You may also purchase additional insurance for your move through the TSP or from a private insurance company.
For shipments not processed in the Defense Personal Property System, a member notifies the TSP of loss/damage noted the day of delivery on DD Form 1840. The member/designated agent and the TSP sign/date DD Form 1840 on the date of delivery. Additional loss/damage noted after the delivery date is recorded on DD Form 1840R, Notice of Loss or Damage. The time-frame and Full Replacement Value information listed below applies.
All Department of Defense customers are eligible for FRV protection on DOD-funded personal property shipments at no cost to you.
If a member’s property is lost or damaged during a move, they may file a claim against the TSP. The member can file a claim directly in DPS with the TSP for damaged or lost items at the time of delivery or after delivery. The member is authorized FRV coverage as detailed below:
Full Replacement Value
If a claim is filed directly with the TSP within 9 months of delivery, then the TSP’s maximum liability on each domestic household goods, international household goods, and international unaccompanied baggage shipment is:
For loss/damage discovered on the date of delivery, the member must complete the Defense Personal Property Program form Notification of Loss or Damage AT Delivery.
For loss/damage discovered after the delivery date, the member must complete the DP3 form Notice of Loss or Damage AFTER Delivery.
For direct claims settlement between member and TSP:
A member has the option to transfer the claim to the Military Claims Office after 30 days. In these instances, the Military Claims Office pays the member depreciated value and then pursues the FRV claim with the TSP. After settlement with the TSP, if the FRV settlement exceeds the amount paid by the military claims service to the member, the member receives the difference.
The TSP may offer quick claim settlement if:
The TSPs are responsible for obtaining repair estimates.
If member and TSP negotiate settlement through DPS:
It is the TSP’s responsibility to pickup and deliver your shipment on the dates reflected on the government bill of lading and to meet the agreed-upon delivery date out of storage in transit. Failure to do so may cause serious inconvenience to you and your dependents, and can result in unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses for lodging, meals, laundry, and/or rental/purchase of household necessities. An inconvenience claim may be filed via DPS for out-of-pocket expenses caused by the TSP's failure to act on the agreed dates at origin or destination.
For domestic household goods and international household goods shipments, the member receives a toll-free number prior to pickup for direct communication between the member and the TSP. The toll-free number may be used for customer inquiries and problem resolution during any phase of the move. The TSP must respond to the member’s concerns within 24 hours from the member’s initial call if received Monday through Friday, and by close of business the following workday for calls/inquiries received by the TSP on Saturdays, Sundays or legal (officially declared national) holidays. The member should be counseled that the toll-free number is not to be used for shipment changes (pickup date or delivery date changes). The member must contact the local transportation office for any changes after shipment award to a TSP.
