Deciding where to live, where to work, the type of work to do and where the kids will go to school are life-changing choices. Though moving from base-to-base often involves a change in lifestyle, transitioning to the civilian workforce brings an additional set of challenges. Fortunately, there is help. Take advantage of the military’s Transition Assistance Program (TAP) to make the process easier.
To combat the transition challenge of “You don’t know what you don’t know”, especially now during a global pandemic, VBA has launched a new video series called Transition Talk to bring critical information and resources to transitioning service members and Veterans. The inaugural episode discusses topics that matter most to those in transition, or those facing anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic: GI Bill payments, filing compensation claims, accessing possible state-based cash assistance programs, and more. All episodes can be viewed at: “Transition Talk” video series: Military to Civilian support during COVID-19 – VAntage Point.
