EFMP Program Overview

The Exceptional Family Member Program is a mandatory enrollment program, based on carefully defined rules. EFMP works with other military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated medical, educational, housing, community support and personnel services to Families with special needs. EFMP enrollment works to ensure that needed services are available at the receiving command.  All Soldiers are responsible to update their EFMP status every three years or as any changes occur.  If a Soldier allows his/her EFMP status to expire, it will affect his/her ability to receive new orders and PCS. The EFMP operates I.A.W. AR 608-75.   When a Soldier receives a new assignment to a remote location within the U.S. or a location overseas, the Soldier must have their EFM screened.  Overseas Family travel may be delayed (unapproved) until the Family members, who will accompany the Soldier, have been screened for medical and special education conditions.
