Retirement Options: Request Retirement DD Form 214 Worksheet

Separation Options: DD Form 214 Worksheet Initial Separation Briefing Officer/Enlisted Voluntary Separation Tutorial Voluntary Separation Pre-Separation Order Worksheet

*** Physical Delivery of DD Form 214***

1. In an effort to minimize costs and utilize existing technology, effective 1 December 2013, the hard copy DD Form 214 (copies 1 and 4) will no longer be mailed out to members. Since October 2010, separating or retiring individuals could electronically access and print their DD Form 214s. Eliminating the need of mailing paper copies reduces money spent on a redundant process.

2. This policy affects those DD Form 214s that are accomplished at AFPC-Total Force Service Center (TFSC), Randolph Air Force Base only.

3. During separation and retirement processing, members receive instructions on how to access, review and print their DD Form 214 as needed. Copies 1 and 4 are housed on the secure server in the vMPF for a period of 60 days past the official retirement/separation effective date. After the 60 days, members are able to obtain copies from the eBenefits website.

4. Members with an approved retirement or separation should retrieve a USERID and password allowing access to the AFPC Secure application. This can be done while still on active-duty by using your CAC and either entering the AF Portal or using the direct AFPC Secure link.

Once at the site, utilize the "Update/Delete Password" tab to generate a new USERID/password. While on terminal leave, the member will be able to access the worksheet and be able to retrieve their DD Form 214 when completed.

5. Those who are not able to use their CAC should contact the A1 Service Desk at 1-800-525-0102, (option "8") or dial DSN 665-5004 and they will provide assistance in obtaining a USERID/password.

6. AFPC point of contact is AFPC/DPSOR ​

Has AFPC sent you your official orders? Then it is time to schedule a final out for your Retirement or Separation. Members can schedule a final out appointment (contact info?). After the appointment is scheduled, members will be sent an outlook calendar invite to remind them of their appointment.

REMINDER: Members must attend their out-processing in uniform. Those members not in uniform will not be allowed to out-process. No exceptions.

The Air Force only grants one award for the same act, achievement, or service. Ensure only 10 percent of similar units assigned to their command are recommended annually. Units can also receive specific awards like the Presidential Unit Citation, Joint Meritorious Unit Award, and other sister service unit awards. These awards are governed by DoD 1348.33-M, Manual of Military Decorations and Awards.
