Through individual counseling, workshops and seminars, the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) is an outcome-based program that bolsters opportunities, services, and training for transitioning service members in their preparation to meet post-military goals. Through the transition process, individuals identify their skills, learn to search the job market, and successfully market themselves to quickly secure employment in the civil sector. Spouses are highly encouraged to attend all TAP components.
A retiree should engage 24-20 months prior to date of retirement and a separatee must start the TAP process as early as 18-15 months prior to separation. The intent of starting earlier is to allow members to be more proactive in the process and to take ownership of their transition.
Any member that has been identified for early separation including legal, administrative, medical evaluation board (MEB), Palace Chase or Palace Front, or other requirements should start the TAP process the moment the INTENT to discharge early is known.
Any member assigned to deploy must immediately complete both Initial Consultation and Preseparation Counseling prior to actual deployment if they will fall below 365 days from date of separation during deployment.
