About the Separations Branch

PPC Separations (SEP) provides the following:

Annually we process nearly 3,000 separations and distribute 130,000 W-2 forms.

Separation Processing Tips

Reminder for Soon-to-be-Retirees: Beginning January 1, 2024, PPC/RAS will no longer accept versions of the Form DD-2656 older than March 2022 as your application for retirement pay. There have been updates made to the form that allow for more efficiencies in processing new retiree accessions.

Please submit your DD-2656 to PPC-DG-CustomerCare@uscg.mil at least 90 days prior to your date of retirement. Failure to provide this form - with a signature dated prior to your retirement date - will result in your enrollment in the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) for at least 24 months.

Transition Training

Be prepared: Take your mandatory transition training

​All members are required to take pre-separation counseling on the Learning Management System (LMS) or a transition seminar. Members are authorized to begin their transition one year out from separation or two years out from retiring. Contact your local transition manager or visit the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) website at https://www.dcms.uscg.mil/CG1/Health-Safety-and-Work-Life-CG-11/Office-of-Work-Life-CG-111/Transition-Assistance-Program/.
