SFL - TAP ELIGIBILITY
Basic eligibility for SFL - TAP services begins when transitioners are within eighteen months of separation or two years of retirement. Transition leave and/or permissive TDY may be added to the basic eligibility period. Service members pending "involuntary separation actions" for any reason, including potential medical separation, are eligible and encouraged to begin using SFL - TAP and transition services as soon as separation is anticipated. Alumni, their family members, and other service veterans may use SFL - TAP services for 180 days after separation. Retirees may use SFL - TAP services for life, on a space available basis.
Transitioners who are in the SFL - TAP Center Area of Responsibility and who wish to receive services at JBLM, may contact the Regional Outreach Team at (253) 967-3258 for assistance in setting up their SFL - TAP training schedule. JBLM provides services to Service Members who work in Washington State but not at JBLM, or who are located in any of 14 surrounding states where their parent commands agree to send them to JBLM on orders. If your unit will not provide orders, call the regional team and we will tell you how to get started with SFL - TAP on the internet.
The JBLM SFL - TAP Center is responsible for providing transition assistance to Remote transitioners in the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones who are assigned more than 50 miles from an existing SFL - TAP Center.
