### Relocation
If your permanent address is changing, notify People Operations of the new address before the pay cycle of the move. The best way to do this is by logging in to BambooHR and changing your address under the **Personal** tab. This triggers a message to the BambooHR admin to review the change and "accept" it.

If you do not have your new address you can also email People Operations to trigger a review.
If you are going to spend six months or more in one location this will be considered as a relocation and your compensation will be evaluated based on the new metro region.
- If your relocation is to a different metro area, then to stay aligned with our [compensation principles](/handbook/people-operations/global-compensation-calculator/#compensation-principles) and per the [standard contract agreements](/handbook/contracts), you should obtain written agreement first from your manager and then from People Operations. You must have approval 30 days prior to any official move. If you are considering a move it is best to discuss this with your manager as soon as possible, not after you have actually moved, to understand the impact to compensation or your role at GitLab. In almost all situations the compensation may change. In some instances a move will not align to your proposed location, (e.g. a recruiter hired in EMEA to support EMEA would not be approved to move to the US). It is the company's discretion to offer you a contract in your new location or to not continue with your contract based on a relocation. For an idea about the impact please run your move past our People Operations Analyst and Chief Culture Officer for an accurate salary in the new [geographical area](/handbook/people-operations/global-compensation/#geographical-areas).

- If the team member is moving to a lower cost of living, the change only needs to be approved by their manager and the Chief Culture Officer. If the team member is moving to a higher cost of living, the People Ops Analyst will escalate to the Chief Culture Officer and the CEO for approval.
- People Ops will check that any necessary changes to payroll and benefits administration are processed in time.
- People Ops will process any changes that are agreed on, and file the email in BambooHR.
- If there are any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Chief Culture Officer.
If you are not changing your permanent location (where you pay taxes and maintain residency), but instead are traveling to different locations over a period of time, you are responsible for maintaining your health insurance, visas, and any other item directly relating to your travel. Since GitLab does not require you to travel to these locations as part of your position, you will not be eligible to utilize the Business Accident Travel Policy or expense any items related to your travel. If you are hired in a role requiring a timezone alignment, you must still be able to fulfill that requirement.
### Tuition Reimbursement
GitLab supports team members who wish to continue their education and growth within their professional career. If you are a full-time GitLabber and have been employed for more than three months, you are eligible to participate in this program.
