Moving expenses and separation allowance
The provisions of the Federal Moving Expense Act (‘Bundesumzugskostengesetz’ – BUKG) are decisive for the granting of moving expense compensation (‘Umzugskostenvergütung’). A prerequisite for the reimbursement of relocation expenses is the prior written approval of the University.
It is normally granted only for professors and junior professors as part of the appointment procedure.
If an approval for relocation expense reimbursement is granted, it is possible to grant a departure allowance (‘Trennungsgeld’) upon request if the preconditions are given. The decisive provision is the Departure Allowance Regulation (‘Trennungsgeldverordnung’ – TGV).
