How to Fill Out DD Form 1299?
Step-by-step DD Form 1299 instructions are included in every Department of Defense-issued copy of the form.
The document includes the addresses of both of the shipping offices that should be contacted when moving. You can receive help with moving preparations at the origin office. The destination office will provide assistance in case any of the moving plans change or you need to submit a post-move claim.
- The first step in filling out the DD Form 1299 is providing your personal data. The next step is to estimate the weight of the goods that should be moved in pounds and indicate the number of cartons containing valuable items.
- The maximal weight you are eligible for is based on your rank and you will be charged for every pound above the limit.
- If you are moving a mobile home, provide the details about it in Lines B and C in Box 7. Do not forget to double-check all the addresses entered to make sure they are correct. All service members are advised to designate an agent who will receive the moved property in case they will be unable to do so themselves.
