The primary reference for out-processing procedures is contained in AR 600-8-101, Chapter 3 and DA Pam 600-8-101, Chapter 3.

The DA Form 137-1 (Unit Clearance Record) and the DA Form 137-2 (Installation Clearance Record) are the two forms that will guide Soldiers through the clearing process and specify which agencies Soldiers must clear prior to departing JBLM.

The DA Form 137-1 is issued by Soldier’s servicing BN S-1 and the Reassignment Processing Center issues the DA Form 137-2. Forms printed from the Army Publishing Directorate website, are not accepted.

Soldiers may initiate the clearing process 33 days prior to the start of their leave. Upon initiation, Soldier is entered into the out-processing system for pre-clearance (reducing the number of agencies required to clear in-person). Soldier is given a specific date and time in which they will receive the Installation out-processing brief and then their Installation Clearing Packet.


The following are directed by OPORD 411-20 and all concerned FRAGOs and can be found at:

-Soldiers traveling from, through or to any restricted locations require a waiver to PCS. Waivers are approved by the first O-6 commander in a Soldier’s chain of command.

-Travel restrictions are based off the IMCOM COVID Placemat; located at:

-At this time, Hawaii, Alaska and other U.S. territories are considered CONUS for leave purposes, therefore leave in conjunction with PCS travel is authorized.

-All other OCONUS locations require a COVID-19 test and are not authorized leave in conjunction with PCS travel.

-Soldiers traveling to overseas locations will not receive a “final-out” stamp on Installation clearing packets. Packets are stamped and released when Soldier’s servicing S-1 supplies the Reassignment Processing Center with a departure transaction from eMILPO.
