TRANSITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (TAP) OVERVIEW

We provide transition and employment assistance to Soldiers and their adult family members who are transitioning from active duty. We also assist Veterans, Retirees, and DoD Civilian employees who are in a Reduction in Force (RIF) status. Pre-separation planning includes benefits information, job search skills development, career guidance, search assistance, and a multitude of other services that are vital to a seamless transition.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

Why is TAP important?

TAP is a Commander's program mandated by law that supports the Veteran's Opportunity to Work (VOW) Act and Department of Defense/Army Transition Policy. The program's goal is to prepare Soldiers for transition, reduce the number of unemployed Veterans, and reduce the stress our Soldiers and their Families experience during the transition process. Commanders and Directors will manage and facilitate the transition process for Soldiers leaving active duty starting 18 months prior (24 months for Retirees) but not later than 12 months prior to separation.

How can I contact VA reps?

VA counselors are co-located with the Transition Assistance Program and provide one on one appointments and facilitate the VA Benefits and Services class. VA counselors can’t submit claims for disability, but can provide information on claim requirements and how the claim process works.
