VA Transition Assistance

Veteran Benefits

In coordination with the U.S. Departments of Defense and Labor, VA provides comprehensive support through the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) to help Service members transition to civilian life.

During TAP, you will go through Transition GPS (Goals, Plans, Success), a series of modules that help you pursue your post-service goals and develop an individual transition plan to ensure that you meet the required career-readiness standards for separation.

In VA’s portion of TAP, you’ll learn about benefits and resources like career guidance, training, counseling, and more. Your VA benefits can help you throughout your lifetime—to buy a home, further your education, stay healthy, learn new skills, protect your family, and much more.
