Through a series of sessions, a professionally trained consultant will help you identify goals and navigate benefits and resources.
The military has an extensive array of services to help make your separation a success. If you’re an active-duty service member, National Guard and Reserve Component service member, or service member’s spouse, you can take advantage of these transition assistance resources and more.
Preparing for your separation or retirement from the military with a special needs family member may require additional consideration. Develop a plan using available support, tools and resources.
You’ve made the decision. Now it’s time to make the most of it. There’s a list of tasks to accomplish, and most of them come with a due date.
Transitioning to civilian life is just like everything else in military life. The more preparation you do, the more smoothly everything goes. Whether you’re moving on after one tour of duty or you’ve put in 20 years or more, you have a lot to do as you bring your military career to a close.
Hanging up your uniform and transitioning to civilian life can be both exciting and confusing. It may come with a lot of questions. Have you figured out your civilian career? Found a health care plan yet? Secured a new home base?
Are you separating or retiring from the service in the near future? Are you actively transitioning to civilian life? With so many components of transition, you may feel like you could use some extra help. Maybe you’re looking for support to manage stress or logistics. Or perhaps you just need someone to give you that extra encouragement to set goals to get through your to-do list.
The day will come when you’re preparing to get out of the military. You might have spent many an hour already thinking about where you want to live when you get out. Now it’s time to get practical.
Maybe you’re just ending your first tour of duty. Maybe you’ve fulfilled your obligation to your country. Now, you’re at a crossroads—re-enlist, reserves, transition out? How do you know you’re making the right call?
If you are a spouse who has left an abusive relationship with an active-duty service member, you may be eligible for transitional compensation.
Navigate the transition from military to civilian life with ease by using the resources, benefits and programs provided by Military OneSource.
No matter the length of your military career, you’ve probably moved at least once. It’s always an adventure. For most service members leaving the military, either at retirement or at their end of active service separation, a final move at government expense is authorized.
The Department of Defense recognizes the role of the spouse in a smooth military transition, and has developed a new tool, called the Military Spouse Transition Program, designed to bolster your military spouse success at each step of the journey, from the beginning to the end of your family’s military experience.
