This is mandatory for active duty; active Guard and Reserve servicemembers separating or retiring from service; and those leaving a Title 10 tour of 180 days or more. Members that serve on 180 cumulative days or more of Title 10 orders (including those who have been on Title 10 orders for MPA tours, school or training) or deployed pre-separation counseling is mandatory.
Preseparation counseling is also highly recommended for anyone leaving the service regardless of your status, retiring or separating. The DD Form 2648, DD Form 2648-1, Preseparation Counseling checklist provides critical information about benefits, resources, and services available as you transition from military to civilian life. By law, this counseling must be provided at least 90 days prior to your date of separation from title 10 orders or retirement.
Preseparation must be completed prior to attending the Transitional Assistance Program.
