Separation and Retirement (Transition Assistance)

Federal law requires that all Sailors receive transition assistance. Services provided help ensure that separating/retiring Sailors and their families have the skills, tools and self-confidence necessary to re-enter the civilian work force and/or seamlessly transition from Active Component to Reserve Component successfully. 

IMPORTANT: Per NAVADMIN 300/11, CCCs are required to use and transmit the JAN 11 version of the Pre-Separation Counseling Checklist (DD Form 2648) and Transition Assistance Program (TAP) checklist for Deactivating/ Demobilizing Reserve Component service members (DD form 2648-1) via Defense Manpower Data Center's (DMDC) TAP online data entry tool located at https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/tacl/.

To obtain access to DMDC/TAP:

  • Complete SAAR Form DD 2875 (revised AUG 09)
  • Complete Parts I (Block 11 MUST be digitally signed using your CAC), II and III
  • Email completed SAAR to tom.albert@navy.mil  or david.greene@navy.mil
  • Contact OPNAV N135F, (901) 874-4254 or (901) 874-6545 for additional guidance
