If you’re moving to a different GSA region, please reference the “Process update” section below. If you’re moving within the same GSA region, please follow the steps in the “Change your address” section below.
The official GSA process for moving regions has recently changed, and we are currently drafting updated guidance. In the meantime, if you need to move, please reach out to the Talent Team via Slack or email.
Please note that full approval can take a significant period of time and is not guaranteed, so we highly recommend that you don’t finalize plans to move until receiving full approval.
The information below should only be used for reference and may not reflect the updated GSA policy:
Your effective date should be the start of a pay period. Pay period dates can be found on GSA InSite.
A member of the TTS Talent Team will complete a report of personnel action (RPA) and a virtual worker agreement (VWA) which is used if you’re not going to work out of a federal office along with a VWA Appendix 2. The paperwork is submitted to OHRM and then they process everything. You will only need to sign the Appendix 2.
Changes in pay
If you’re changing regions, your pay will change. Look up your new pay here. Find your region under the pay table for the current year, and then find your step and grade. That’s what you’ll be paid in your new location.
Change your address
Change your home address on Employee Express to notify most GSA operations of your new address.
Once your move is effective in GSA systems (SF50/CHRIS), change your state tax withholding by contacting the payroll office at KC-Payroll.Finance@gsa.gov.
To notify the Thrift Savings Program (TSP) of your new address, email it to both the Consolidated Processing Center at firstname.lastname@example.org and to the payroll office at KC-Payroll.Finance@gsa.gov. Payroll will notify the TSP office of your new address.
Contact your health insurance, dental insurance, and any other insurances you may have and let them know about your address change. You will also need to verify that your insurance will be valid in your new location or you will need to change it. Contact GSA HR at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Change your Slack location
We’ve started putting our location in parentheses after our names in Slack to make it easier for coworkers to tell where we are. To update it, open your profile, click Edit, and update the letters after your last name.
