EFMP helps active duty service members with managing the special needs of a family member. Enrollment in the program is mandatory for active duty personnel with family members with special needs (MCO P1754.4B).
Who qualifies for EFMP?
An exceptional family member (EFM) must be enrolled in DEERS and MCTFS and have a diagnosed physical, intellectual, or emotional need that requires specialized medical or educational services.
What is the goal of EFMP?
The program ensures the sponsor is assigned to a duty station where services exist to support their EFM.
EFMP Family Case Workers are available to:
Guide members through the enrollment process
Connect families to medical, educational, and community services
Assist families with special education needs
Provide resource, referral, and support throughout PCS transitions
