Discharge Processing
Members are processed for discharge using the check-off sheets provided in the CG Pay and Procedures Manual (PPPM). Members should take the below actions based on their discharge date OR their departure date from unit (whichever is earliest) to allow for proper pay processing. Members who do not follow the below guidelines maybe retained or not receive final pay on date of separation. Refer to the (PPPM) for additional guidance and references.


(6) Months Prior
Members are required to complete an E-Resume in Direct- Access six months prior to their departure date. This process notifies your command, Headquarters (detailer), and the Personnel Service Center (PSC) of your intentions to separate from the service.Contact the Transition Manager to schedule a TAP class.

(3) Months Prior
When applicable, a member should have a command interview with their Commanding Officer (refer to CG Personnel Manual, Chap 12).

(60) Days Prior (Minimum)
Members complete and forward to their Servicing Personnel Office via the chain-of-command the following forms:

1. PCS Departing / Separation Worksheet CG PSC-2000
2. PCS Entitlements Worksheet CG PSC-2003
3. Career Intentions Worksheet CG PSC-2045
4. Pre-Separation Counseling Checklist (DD-2648)

Upon receipt of these documents our office will begin the process of requesting a Travel Order Number (TONO) and Accounting String for Travel and Household Goods shipments from PSC; update members training file with school code 500650; complete separation travel orders; draft a DD-214 for review; and initiate the appropriate pay and personnel documents in Direct-Access. Discharge certificates and lapel buttons are the responsibility of the unit. Certificates are available on the CG Intranet.

Note: An original DD-214 will NOT be provided to the member until their actual separation date. Members who take leave will be mailed their DD-214. To avoid delays, it is highly recommended that members review and sign the final DD-214 prior to their departure on leave.

Our staff provides applicable documents to the unit/member and verifies any updates/changes to DD-214.

Date of Discharge
Our staff provides unit/member DD-214 and ensures separation transactions are completed in Direct-Access.

(5) Days After
