EFMP Screening Overview

Three members of EFMP screening staff; Soldier completing paperwork with DA civilian; EFMP banner; Soldier completing paperwork.Soldiers enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) are ensured that the Army considers their Family members with special needs in the assignment coordination process. If that assignment is to an overseas location and the Soldier requests accompanied travel, then each Family member requires EFMP screening before travel, even if the Family member is already registered in the EFMP.

If the Family member is registered, EFMP screening simply acts as a process to confirm that the special need still exists or provides an opportunity to update the status of the special need if it has changed. If the Family member is not registered, the EFMP screening process may result in the identification of an Exceptional Family Member (EFM) and enrollment in the EFMP.

Did you know? The Army identifies approximately 30% of Family members who have special needs during the overseas screening process.
