Process for Adding a Separation/Retirement TONO/LOA to DA Orders


Here is the process for obtaining travel order numbers and accounting data for separations:


  1. Ensure member has firm plans to relocate upon separation. They should not request a TONO "just in case" as there is a process in place to request a TONO at a later time. See para 6 below for details.
  2. E-mail tonomanagement@uscg.mil with the following information (multiple requests in one e-mail are encouraged):
    1. Rank and Name
    2. EMPLID
    3. Orders Trans ID
    4. Type of orders (Separation or Retirement)
    5. From City, State to City, State (e.g. Arlington, VA to Elko, NV)
  3. Allow up to 3 business days for DCMS-831 to add the TONO. Once added, it will appear on the orders in DA.
  4. If TONO must be added ASAP (same day separation), contact PSC-BOPS-C at ARL-DG-M-CGPSC-BOPS-C@uscg.mil.
  5. SPOs are still required to use the "SRT" order note on Separation and Retirement orders.
  6. The process to request a TONO if the member decides to relocate at a later date will remain the same:
    1. Member must ensure the request for a new TONO and relocation dates are within the original entitlement timeline. Requests for an extension must be submitted to CG-1332.
    2. Member must request a new TONO from CGPSC-BOPS-C by emailing ARL-DG-M-CGPSC-BOPS-C@uscg.mil. CGPSC-BOPS-C will send the member an amendment to their orders containing the new TONO and LOA. This does not constitute a change to their entitlement timeline.
