Transition Assistance Program (TAP), Separations | GPS Forum

* The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) has had a name change and is now called Transition GPS. Transitioning out of the Navy can appear daunting but there is help from many sources. In fact, the Department of Defense (DoD), the United States Navy, the Department of Labor and the Department of Veterans Affairs have your back! Getting things in order, the first you want to do is attend a TAP class. From there you will learn about benefits if any from the military and from your state of residence. You will also want to connect with family and friends if applicable to have a support line available to you. 

Perhaps the most important item on the plate is to get a job when you separate. The process starts while you are still in the Navy, ensuring your qualifications are in order and that you take any course related to what you expect to be doing. You will also want to make sure your DD Form 214, (DD 214) Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty has zero mistakes. Another item is to make sure your medical records are properly turned in for proper care. This is important because this ensures the VA has access to your medical records in case you file a claim.
