Transition Centers are now able to create and sign DD Form 214s and Separation Orders
02 Feb 2023 13:42
Transition Centers are now able to create and sign DD Form 214s and Separation Orders! Soldiers that experienced a delay can contact their transition center for separation orders and to schedule an appointment to receive their DD Form 214s. Soldiers already on transition leave or separated, but did not receive their DD Form 214 will receive a copy in the mail and in IPERMs. DD Form 214s for Soldiers who are on transition leave or separated will state “service member not available for signature.” DD214s marked this way instead of signed by Soldier are completely valid. If you haven’t received your DD Form 214 in the mail, and haven’t had contact with your transition center by 15 February, we encourage you to contact the transition center at the installation you departed for an updated status. If you have corrections to your DD Form 214 after you’ve separated, contact the Army Service Center (#ASC) 24-hour line at 1-844-474-7772.
