Transition Assistance Program (TAP)

The Department of Defense Transition Assistance Program (DoD TAP) provides job assistance and separation counseling services for Soldiers and their Families during the transition away from active service. DoD TAP services are provided on military installations by Transition Assistance Officers.

SFL-TAP initiatives include transition information and counseling for pre-separation, employment assistance, relocation, education and training, health and life insurance, finances, Reserve affiliation, disabled Veterans, and retirement.
