Tricare

While Soldiers PCS, they are still responsible to the last place that they in-processed (Schofield/Tripler) if they want to receive care, until they in-process at their new assignment and obtain a new primary care manager. View the document below for more information about what Soldiers need to do with their Tricare accounts during a PCS. Call 1-800-322-8262 with any questions. 

Reassignments

The mission of the Military Personnel Division’s (MPD) Reassignment Section is to ensure that all Soldiers on Assignment Instructions (AI) be allowed to have a smooth and timely Permanent Change of Station (PCS) transition. All Soldiers on AI must meet the requirements of AR 614-30 and AR 614-200 for enlisted and AR 614-100 for officers to receive their PCS orders.

Soldiers are notified of their AI within 120 days of their DEROS through their AKO. MPD retrieves AI and special instructions from eMILPO and EDAS for enlisted and TOPMIS for officers and notifies the unit S1s (personnel shops) of their levy briefing schedules. MPD human resource techs conduct one-on-one interviews with Soldiers during the levy briefs to confirm all the information prior publishing orders. PCS orders are published after all the requirements are met. Orders may only be picked up by authorized personnel staff (S1).

Levy Briefs

Other services offered by the Reassignment Section are as follows:

Transition Center

The mission of the Transition Center is to provide separation services to all Soldiers of the Pacific Rim. The section processes ETS, Retirements, Release from Active Duty (REFRAD), Medical Separations, Discharge/Retirement, Chapter Eliminations (both Voluntary and Involuntary separations), mobilized RC Soldiers, and release and retirement of AGR Soldiers.

The Transition Center issues DD Form 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty), discharge certificates, retirement flags, pins and certificates.

3. Distance Assistance. The Benefits Coordinator can mail the survivor the customized packet of forms and information which pertain to the survivor's specific situation. The survivor can mail the forms directly to individual offices or return the entire packet to the Benefits Coordinator for processing.
