DD Form 1299, Application for Shipment and/or Storage of Personal Property is a form issued by the Department of Defense (DoD). The DD 1299 is used by service members and other eligible individuals to request shipment and storage of any personal property at the expense of the government.
The form - often incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 1299 - was last revised in September 1998. An up-to-date fillable DD Form 1299 is available for download below.
To initiate the moving process, two forms must be submitted to the U.S. Department of State Transportation and Travel Management Division:
- The DD Form 1299 (Application for Shipment and/or Storage of Personal Property) should be accomplished for each shipment;
- The DD Form 1797 (Personal Property Counseling Checklist) is used for documenting members and employees within the DPS IAW JFTR/JTR entitlements and service regulations.
The counseling can be completed through the Official DoD Moving Portal or in person. Download and file copies of the DD 1299 and DD 1797 and hand them in at the local Transportation Office (TO). The TO can assist you with completing all of the paperwork.
