Transition Assistance Program - VA Benefits Briefings

Take the next step into civilian life

VA Benefits I and II Briefings are part of VA's portion of Transition Goals, Plans, Success (GPS), which is designed to help transitioning Servicemembers, to include Guard and Reserve members demobilizing after 180 days or more of active service, adjust to life after the military. All transitioning Servicemembers are required to attend Transition GPS.

The briefings consist of two classroom modules: a four-hour VA Benefits I Briefing and a two-hour VA Benefits II Briefing.

  • VA Benefits I Briefing provides you with information on education, health care, compensation, life insurance, and home loans, as well as vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits information and counseling.
  • VA Benefits II Briefing helps you understand some of the services and programs related to your VA health care and understand the VA disability compensation process. Additionally, you will learn how to navigate through eBenefits.

Spouses and family members are encouraged to attend both briefings.

Optional Two-Day Technical Training Track

VA is leading an optional two-day technical training track. This workshop assists transitioning Servicemembers in identifying civilian occupations, establishing career goals, and beginning applications for credentialing and vocational training.

Additional optional tracks focusing on education and entrepreneurship are also available, and are led by the military services and Small Business Administration.
