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/.

Process for Adding a Separation/Retirement TONO/LOA to DA Orders
Direct Access no longer automatically adds a Travel Order Number(TONO)/Line of Accounting(LOA) to Separation and Retirement Orders. TONOs/LOAs are now added by DCMS-831 (PCS TONO Funds Manager) if the member elects to relocate upon separation/retirement to their Home of Record/Home of Selection. This change will ensure that the Coast Guard only allocates funds to members who are actually moving/incurring costs.
