Transition Assistance



The purpose of the Transition Assistance Advisor program is to provide a professional in each state/territory to serve as the statewide point of contact to assist Service Members in accessing Department of Veterans Affairs’ health care services and benefits. Each TAA also provides assistance in obtaining entitlements through the Military Health System and access to community resources.


  • Guard entitlements and access for health care in both the DoD and VA medical facilities
  • TRICARE benefits while you are on active duty and when you return as an OIF/OEF Veteran
  • Important deadlines that require your action while still on active duty and as a Veteran so you do not miss these time-sensitive opportunities
  • VA dental care programs (time-sensitive benefit)
  • Referral for counseling services for you and your family that will not affect your career
  • Referral for possible compensation for injuries or illness sustained in OEF, OIF and OND
  • Insurance information such as SGLI, TSGLI, and FSGLI
  • Rehabilitative care management needed to help you return to a normal lifestyle
  • Assistance with job search and connection with ESGR for rights of employment
  • Assistance in connecting you to the Veterans Benefits Administration and Veterans Services Organizations to file disability/compensation claims
  • Assistance in the event of financial hardship, health care issues, or unemployment needs
  • Assistance with locating your medical records and DD 214s
