Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

The Exceptional Family Member Program helps identify and document special medical and educational needs of active duty family members, and factors those needs into the assignment process. Family members who require special medical or educational services based on a diagnosed physical, intellectual, or emotional disability must be enrolled in this program. Identified disabilities may range from mild to severe. Special needs may include special medical, mental health, developmental or educational requirement, wheelchair accessibility, adaptive equipment, or assistive technology devices and services. EFMP enrollment does not harm one's military career. The goal of the program is to consider a family member's special need during the assignment coordination process. Sponsors are still deployable according to the needs of the service. Learn more about the Exceptional Family Member Program.
