Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
What is the EFMP?
The EFMP supports families with special medical and educational needs. Each branch has its own EFMP and enrollment process. You can enroll in the EFMP during duty assignment.
EFMP family support services are also available at your installation. The family support services team is your main point of contact for EFMP information. They can connect you with:
- Military Support Services and Resources
- Community Support Services and Resources
The family support services team can also answer specific EFMP questions based on your branch or installation.
The EFMP Program identifies special medical and educational needs of beneficiaries in the assignment process. This can include asthma, ADHD/ADD, depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, or those receiving care from a specialist to include providers of pulmonary, neurology, cardiology, or mental health.
Beneficiaries should contact the Family Member Relocation Coordinator for enrollment in this program. All forms are available at Air Force's Personnel Center.
Additional information on this program can be found at Exceptional Family Member Program
For out-processing, please attend the family member relocation clearance brief six months prior to the date you are expected to return from overseas, or DEROS. The briefing is held every Monday at 9 a.m. in Building 405, Room 1174.
