Overseas Home of Record

DEFINITION OF HOME OF RECORD:

The home of record is the location at which an employee/selectee resided immediately prior to the appointment/assignment overseas.   It is also referred to as "actual place of residence".


WHEN THE HOME OF RECORD IS DETERMINED:

The home of record will be determined at the initial selection, appointment, or transfer to an overseas duty location.


HOW HOME OF RECORD IS USED:

The home of record determines the Government's obligation for travel benefits for movement to the overseas location, renewal agreement travel, early return of dependents, and separation from the overseas area.  The Government's obligation for funding of movements is limited from and to the home of record.  The home of record listed on the initial transportation agreement will also be stated on any renewal agreement unless it is determined that an error was made at the execution of the initial agreement as outlined in the Joint Travel Regulations, Chapter 5, Part G.
