Preseparation Counseling is the FIRST step in the Transition process.  The purpose of preseparation counseling is to ensure all separating SMs are informed of the transition services and benefits available to assist them and their spouses with the transition to civilian life.  The Checklist will help organize their transition by identifying benefits and services and linking them to websites or providers where they can learn more about selected items.


SMs are introduced to the Individual Transition Plan (ITP), which helps them determine the actions to take to achieve their career goals.  Counseling services cover a range of topics including education and training, employment and career goals, financial management, health and wellbeing, and relocation and housing.


It is DoD policy that preseparation counseling begin as soon as possible during the 24-month period preceding an anticipated retirement date but NLT 90 days before retirement.  For reasons other than retirement, preseparation counseling will begin as soon as possible during the 12-month period preceding the anticipated date of separation but NLT 90 days before separation.  Spouses are HIGHLY encouraged to attend.


This briefing is held every other Wednesday from 0730 - 1200.  Register at thru Appointment Plus.  If SM is within less than 90 days from their DOS, please call (618)256-8668 ASAP to schedule a one-on-one short notice Pre-Sep Counseling appointment.
