WHEN TO START TAP?
Congressional policy requires all service members start TAP NLT 365 days prior the anticipated separation date.
- Guard/Reservists: Coming off AD orders (T10) of 180 days or more are required to complete TAP
- MEB: Start TAP as soon as being placed in MEB status
- Reenlisting: The original ETS must still be used to determine when to start TAP. The intent is to reenlist does not exempt from starting TAP within 365 days prior to ETS. Once you reenlist, you can stop taking TAP.
- Wounded, Ill, or Injured: Work through your Recovery Care Coordinator (RCC) or contact us directly.
To start TAP, complete the Self-Assessment and SOU and email to 6FSS.FSH.TAP@US.AF.MIL. The M&FRC will process your Self-Assessment and assign you to a Tier. At that point, we will schedule you for the initial 4hr IC/PreSep class. Attending PreSep must take place before accessing the additional classes.

The mandatory 4 hr IC and PreSep class is your entry point to the rest of TAP. You will receive a scheduled date and instructions when we process your self-assessment. PreSep is an introduction of services and entitlements and is designed to help you begin planning for your transition. The rest of TAP and access to the remaining classes will take place in PreSep.
