You can make decisions concerning your relocation at any time; however, we strongly recommend that you speak with your BGRS Advisor before making any decisions that could affect you financially. Your relocation is your responsibility, and reading your employers’ policies and publications as well as consulting with your advisor will help ensure that you’re making the most out of your relocation benefits.

Together, you and your BGRS Advisor will ensure that your relocation is smooth, efficient and hassle-free.
