The primary mission of TAMP is to improve retention and mission readiness by providing professional career development resources to the military community throughout the career life cycle. Transition assistance services prepare separating Service Members and their families with the skills, tools, and self-confidence necessary to ensure successful re-entry into the Nation's civilian workforce. TAMP is also intended to improve individual quality of life, enhance personal readiness, and speed the attainment of career milestones.
The diverse complement of individual programs, services, and benefits, which collectively constitute TAMP, can be classified into four categories:
- Pre-separation counseling
- Employment assistance
- Relocation assistance for separating members stationed overseas
- Benefits for members who are involuntarily separated or retired
Every Sailor, active and reserve, separating and retiring, officer and enlisted is eligible for and will have full access to transition services and may receive these services unaffected by length of service. Personnel are eligible to receive transition services as early as 24 months prior to retirement. Personnel voluntarily separating may access transition services 12 months prior to their separation date. Transition services are permanent programs for all separating members (voluntary or involuntary) which provide career change information through a variety of means such as:
- Individual counseling
- Job fairs
- Resources for research
- Employment preparation skills
Fleet and Family Support Centers are the primary providers of Transition Services and work closely with local Commands, the local community, and the Veterans Administration in order to provide current, relevant and complete information and services to transitioning Service Members and their families.
We look forward to working with you during your transition.
