Removal Costs and Separation Allowance
The provisions of the Federal Moving Expense Act (‘Bundesumzugskostengesetz’ – BUKG) are decisive for granting reimbursement of removal costs (‘Umzugskostenvergütung’ - UKV). As a prerequisite for the reimbursement of removal costs, the University must provide a written confirmation beforehand. Usually only professors or junior professor will receive reimbursement of removal costs as part of the appointment procedure.
If the reimbursement of removal costs has been granted, separation allowance may be allowed upon request - if the preconditions are given. Decisive is the German Federal Separation Allowance Ordinance (‘Trennungsgeldverordnung’ – TGV).
