Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
Enterprise Exceptional Family Member Program (E-EFMP):
The Army EFMP has transitioned to using the Enterprise Exceptional Family Member Program (E-EFMP) to process all EFMP and Family Member Travel paperwork. As a result, certain processes have changed. Please reference The U.S. Army Enterprise E-EFMP website and FAQs for more details.
If you have questions regarding the new processes, or any of the required EFMP actions, contact the EFMP staff by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 571-231-1054.
Virtual OCONUS Screening
Virtual OCONUS screenings are conducted by an audio-visual platform or audio-only platform, instead of face-to-face. Soldiers and family members may initiate the process through the E-EFMP website. The DA Form 5888 must be signed by the sponsor's S1 or personnel department prior to uploading it to the E-EFMP website.
What is the EFMP?
TThe 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.
