Limitations on Legal Assistance Services
Legal assistance attorneys do not provide the following services:
If any of your household goods are lost, damaged, or destroyed during the moving process, you may be entitled to full replacement/repair value of that item(s), assuming your Notice of Loss or Damage was filed within the 75 days (applicable to household goods shipments picked up prior to May 15, 2020) or within the 180 days (applicable to household goods shipments picked up May 15, 2020 and after) AND your claim is filed within the nine months following the date of delivery. All claims must be submitted in the Defense Personal Property System (DPS), which is the portal your move originally was scheduled in. However, if you and your moving company cannot reach a settlement for all or a portion of your claim, you can transfer that portion of your claim to your Military Claims Office for processing.

Use the front of DD Form 1840/1840R to notify the mover of any loss or damage you find at the time of delivery. You can also find a link on Move.mil under the tutorial tab at the top of the page. If further loss or damage is discovered after the transportation provider departs, use the reverse side of the form, DD Form 1840R. You must file DD Form 1840/1840R within 70 days of delivery. Completing and submitting the DD Form 1840/1840R does not constitute filing a claim. A claim is separate and distinct from these forms. Your local personal property office (PPO) and claims office will give you complete instructions on where and how to file DD Form 1840/1840R and your claim.
