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.

EFMP at Tyndall Air Force Base

We provide support to military family members with special needs. The EFMP Office medically clears active duty family members (all for OCONUS, those with identified needs for CONUS) requesting travel during a Permanent Change-of-Station.

We ensure availability of medical and/or mental health care at all gaining bases, as well as dental and educational services for all overseas assignments. EFMP also assists families with case management and/or care coordination for all EFMP and humanitarian reassignment requests.
