Teleworking and moving

Full-time Telework Arrangements are required for TTS employees who do not work at least 2 days a pay period in one of the TTS Offices (DC, Chicago, NYC, or San Francisco) or, in rare cases, an approved GSA office. The instructions below will help guide you through determining if/when you need a full-time telework arrangement (FTTA), how to fill out the analysis tool and get the necessary signatures, and then how to submit it in HR Links for Supervisor approval.

Full-time telework arrangements will need to be re-submitted in HR Links annually for approval and will need to be updated to account for any significant changes

What you need to do based on where you’re moving

If you need to move or submit a new full-time telework arrangement, follow the guidance for your situation:

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.

Approved FTTAs

Effective date

Your effective date should be the start of a pay period. Pay period dates can be found on GSA InSite.

A member of the People Ops Team will complete a Personnel Action Request (PAR) and submit to OHRM for processing. If a Full-time Telework Agreement is required, the PAR is generated after the FTTA has been filled out and signed by TTS leadership, as directed in the FTTA instructions. Then the PAR and FTTA are submitted to OHRM for processing.

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

  1. If you are relocating to a different city, where your rate of pay will change, please email to confirm that the TTS People Ops has created a PAR (Personnel Action Request) for your relocation so that payroll is able to process any pay adjustments in a timely manner. If you are moving within the same city (pay does not change), please jump to step 2.

  2. Change your home address in HR Links. This will notify payroll, OPM, and TSP of your new address. For the step-by-step process with images, follow the HR Links Guide.

  1. Once you submit the request in HR links, please email who will confirm your submission went through.

  2. 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 if you have any questions.
