Military/Department of Defense Claims

Why is notice so important on Military/DoD Claims?


Notice is a very important part of the claims process for all damage or loss claims on Government Bill of Lading, DoD/Military shipments. If you do not follow the notice rules, your claim could be denied. · 75 Day Notification Timeframe:

  • Written notification of Loss and/or Damages must be submitted to the Carrier within 75 days from the date of delivery. Items not timely notified may be subject to denial. You may file notice at the time of delivery on the destination paperwork, including the DD Form 1950. You may use the reverse side of this form, the DD Form 1850R, and note loss/damage within 75 days of delivery by sending this form to the TSP/carrier. You may also provide notice to the TSP/Carrier by electronic mail or facsimile.
  • Damage AFTER Delivery (reverse side of Damage AT Delivery) may be scanned/emailed, faxed or mailed to the carrier within 75 days from the date of delivery. It is always a good idea to keep the transaction receipt for verification of timeliness. Again, you may also file notice with the TSP/Carrier via electronic mail or facsimile. When you file notice, please note relevant information including: Inventory number, item name and a description of the damage or that the item is missing.
  • You may also submit your Notification of Loss and/or Damages via the www.move.mil website within 75 days from the date of delivery. If you have issues with the DPS system, a system operated by the DoD, we encourage you to complete a DPS Helpdesk ticket. If you are at the end of your 75 day notice window, please contact the TSP so you can provide notice of loss/damage through another method.◦
  • While notice of loss and/or damage must be received via the methods descibed above, a DoD claim may be filed at any point up to nine months after delivery to be covered under FRV rules. Additional rules governing such filing may be found on the move.mil.com website or thorugh your local Military Claims Office.




What if my move was under a Government Bill of Lading with the Military/Department of Defense

This is a military designed, implemented and maintained system. Once you file your claim through the DPS system, if it moved with an Ealge TSP client, Eagle will automatically receive the claim and begin investigation and settlement.
