What is the difference between removal and non-removal entitlements?

The removal entitlement is when the Organization takes care of all the arrangements and pays the cost of shipment of a large part of your belongings (within established weight or volume limits). Under the non-removal entitlement, the Organization will either pay a fixed lump-sum amount, (called a Relocation Grant), or alternatively, if the staff member’s chooses, arrange for unaccompanied shipment of a small part of their belongings and pay a monthly non-removal allowance for a duration of five years.
