U.S. Coast Guard Logo Transition services are available to Coast Guard members who are either Active Duty, Reservists, Retirees and the spouses. The Transition Assistant Program intended to help make an effective transition from military to civilian life.

Several services are available for those separating or retiring from the Coast Guard. They include:

  Transition Assistance Seminar, which provides participants with information on resume and cover letter writing, interviewing techniques, job search techniques, dressing for success and veteran benefits, to name a few. Spouses of active duty members are highly encouraged to attend, however, travel funding is not provided.
  Pre-Separation Counseling is provided by a command representative who will meet with all separating, retiring, or those entering the Disability Evaluation System and will cover such topics as education assistance, vocational and rehabilitation benefits, selected reserve affiliation, medical and dental coverage, financial planning assistance, and more.
  Pre-Separation Guide: This handbook was developed by Coast Guard Transition/Relocation Managers to assist members in the separation from the service by providing useful information and resources. By incorporating career assessment tools and techniques, exploring job and career options, focusing on immediate job objectives and long-term career goals via individual or group assessments, employee development plans and transition plans, you will be able to identify individual attributes, plan an effective and workable career strategy and receive appropriate feedback on real career issues, options and barriers.
For more information on how to obtain these services or resources, contact your Transition/Relocation Manager at your Regional Work-Life Staff, located at Integrated Support Commands Coast Guard-wide.
