Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

What is the EFMP?

The EFMP is a program offered by each service to support families with special medical and educational needs throughout the service member’s career. Family members should enroll in EFMP when a qualifying condition is diagnosed. Each branch has its own EFMP and enrollment process.

EFMP family support services are available at your installation. The family support services team is your main point of contact for EFMP information.

They can connect you with:

  • Military Support Services and Resources
  • Community Support Services and Resources

The family support services team can also answer specific EFMP questions based on your branch or installation.

We identify and assist with medical and educational service requirements for active duty family members and dependents, while also ensuring administrative process requirements are met for family member relocations and PCS’s. Can also assist members with the Exceptional Family Member Program reassignment process, as necessary. EFMP is designed to provide support to military family members with special needs. All branches of the military offer EFMP, and each service includes a variety of personnel, medical, and family support functions under the EFMP umbrella.
