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/.

Note:

Due to COVID-19, transition seminars (TAPS) have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.  Members that have either retirement or separation orders listed in the CGBI Personnel Separations Planning Tool, are emailed the online TAPS instructions.  Members separating at the expiration of their enlistment should download the online TAPS instructionsPDF.  Please read this document carefully, and line by line, as it provides specific guidance on what needs to be completed.

Note the following:

  • All proofs of completion must be sent in one email, along with your DOD ID number; separate emails with separate attachments will be deleted.  This is done to cut down on multiple emails when one will suffice.
  • Vist the Transition/Relocation Manager Contact List page for the name and email address of the Transition/Relocation Manager for your location.

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.
