Presentations of Uniform Act Final Rule Implementation

No Waiver of Relocation Assistance or Benefits


A new requirement was added in § 24.207(f) and in the related item in Appendix A to prohibit agencies from proposing or requesting that displaced persons waive their rights to relocation assistance or benefits. The purpose is to make sure displacees understand their benefits and are not pressured into foregoing those benefits. The displacing agency may not suggest or request a waiver. A displaced person may refuse the benefits on his/her own initiative.
