TurboTAP Info Paper


TurboTAP is an easy to use, interactive web portal that provides life-long support to separating active-duty, National Guard and Reserve Component members and their families. It is a single source starting point for accessing key resources available to transitioning members at any point in their military career.

Key Points

TurboTAP was developed through a collaborative partnership between the DoD and the departments of Labor, Veterans Affairs, and Education, the Small Business Administration, the National Veterans Corporation and the National Guard Bureau, integrating their best online tools, information and support services for the benefit of transitioning service members returning to their homes, communities and local employers.
  • Available for life. Transitioning service members are encouraged to establish a TurboTAP account within 48 hours of attending a Transition Assistance Program workshop or as soon as they learn about this resource. The account gives them access to the online TurboTAP Individual Transition Planning Tool and provides them with email alerts when benefits and support services change.

    • A multi-media tutorial explaining how to use TurboTAP
    • Downloadable preseparation and transition guides, helpful checklists and resources for in-person assistance

Young girl writing in a classroom When military families are happy and successful, service members are as well. Parents want to provide a smooth transition from one school system to another, but often they are concerned their children will not be enrolled in the classes they need, be allowed to play their favorite sports or even graduate on time. The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children is designed to eliminate these concerns.
