EFMP Enrollment Overview

A Soldier talking with a member of the EFMP staff; a child being tutored by a Special Education Teacher; the medical EFMP logoThe Army originated the concept of the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) to ensure that it considers the needs of Family members in the assignment coordination process. 

Enrollment in the EFMP is quite common. In fact, approximately 10% of all Active Duty Soldiers have Family members with identified special needs. By regulation, Soldiers must report that they have Family members with special needs and, if determined necessary by the Army Medical Department, enroll in the EFMP. 

These screens provide information on the methods of identifying a Family member with special needs, guidance on enrollment in the EFMP, information on updating enrollment, and reasons for disenrollment.

Did you know 1 in 4 Soldiers with a rank of Sergeant First Class (E-7) or Colonel (0-6) is enrolled in the EFMP?
