Humanitarian Reassignment

  

REASSIGNMENTS FOR HUMANITARIAN REASONS (HUMS)

Policy Guidance: MILPERSMAN 1300-500

Detailing authorities are aware of the hardships that confront Navy families and the additional aggravation imposed by long absences of Service members from their families. Emergency leave frequently provides sufficient time to alleviate such hardships; however, when Service members require more time than leave can provide and have a chance of resolving the hardship within a reasonable period, reassignment for humanitarian reasons (HUMS) may be requested.
A request for reassignment will not be disapproved because a Service member is needed in duties assigned. This article contains the general guidelines concerning application and assignment options available.
 
Screening by Service Member's Command
Prior to considering HUMS reassignment for Service members assigned overseas, review MILPERSMAN 1300-306 to see if early return might be a more appropriate course of action.
 
Request for HUMS reassignment will be sent to the following:
(1) Officer - Cognizant assignment division within PERS-4.
(2) Enlisted - PERS-40HH or scan to e-mail: mill_pers-40hums@navy.mil.
(3) Enlisted Full Time Support (FTS) - NAVPERSCOM
(PERS-40HH) or scan to e-mail: mill_pers-40hums@navy.mil.
(4) Mobilized Reservists - NAVPERSCOM,
Full-Time Support Distribution and Augmentation Division (PERS-46).
