The Department of Defense (DOD) recommends that you start your planning at least 12 months prior to separation, and 24 months prior to retirement, from active duty. The DOD's Transition Assistance Program (TAP) is a vital resource to ensure that your separation/retirement choices are truly in your, and your family's, best interests.
