WHEN TO START TAP?

Congressional policy requires all service members start TAP NLT 365 days prior the anticipated separation date.  

UNIQUE SITUATIONS

  • 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.
