Es una figura propia de EE.UU., de ahí la dificultad de extrapolarla al español.

"Empleados a los que se les ofrezcan/asignen puestos de trabajo con la posibilidad de que les acompañen las personas a su cargo y estas les acompañen/se trasladen con ellos."

"Empleados a los que se les ofrezcan/asignen puestos con la condición/el estatus de persona acompañada y aquellos a su cargo les acompañen/se trasladen con ellos."

"SMA is an allowance that may be granted to an employee whenever the head of agency determines that the employee is compelled to maintain any or all members of family elsewhere than at the post of assignment because of the following circumstances:

Involuntary SMA (ISMA) – For the convenience of the U.S. Government when dangerous notably unhealthful, or excessively adverse living conditions warrant the exclusion of family from accompanying an employee to the post of assignment. (DSSR 262.1)

Voluntary SMA (VSMA) – When an employee requests SMA for special needs or hardship prior to or after arrival at posts for reasons including but not limited to career, health, educational, or family considerations for the spouse or domestic partner, children or other family member. (DSSR 262.2)

Transitional SMA (TSMA) – Following the termination of an evacuation [(a) thru (c)] or in connection with commencement/termination of an unaccompanied tour [(d) and (e)]: (a) conversion of a post to an unaccompanied status; (b) reversion of post to accompanied status for educational consideration; (c) reversion of post to accompanied status for other situations; (d) when family members must depart from an accompanied foreign post because employee's next foreign post is unaccompanied; or (e) when family members on ISMA prepare to depart ISMA point for employee's new foreign or domestic post (accompanied). (DSSR 262.3 a. – e)"
