The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) provides information, tools, and training to ensure Service members and their spouses are prepared for the next step in civilian life whether pursuing additional education, finding a job in the public or private sector, or starting their own business. This redesigned TAP is the result of an interagency collaboration to offer separating Service members and their spouses better, more easily accessible resources and information to make their transitions more successful.

Where to Start?
The transition process begins with the completion of the DD Form 2648, "Pre-Separation Counseling Checklist." This is a mandatory legal requirement and a copy of your DD Form 2648 is required to be filed in your personnel file.

All separating and retiring servicemembers should make an appointment to see their local Transition Counselor for information on transition services and benefits. Transition Counselors are located in the following offices at local military installations:
