While the Military can be a rewarding, lifelong career for many service members, it can also serve as the foundation for a later civilian career. Whatever the case may be, service members will have resources and skills to transition into life after serving.
Navigating military benefits after separating from service can be a challenge, but service members are never alone. The U.S. Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs run the Transition Assistance Program (TAP), which is designed to help veterans with all aspects of returning to civilian life. Services include financial and legal information, access to transition counselors and assistance for job seekers. It is a great resource for active-duty service members, reservists, veterans and their families.
