EFMP is more than just one program or connection point, it's the work of three components: Family Support, Identification and Enrollment, and Assignment Coordination. The program assists by identifying and enrolling family members with special medical or educational needs; finding out what services are available at current or new duty stations; and supporting families with information, referrals when appropriate, and non-clinical case management to access services.
EFMP is here to help you and your family member with special medical or educational needs. Perhaps they have a chronic medical condition, require ongoing services or have behavioral health concerns. Or they may need educational services through an Individualized Education Program or early intervention services through an Individualized Family Service Plan. Military spouses, children or dependent adults of any age can receive assistance through EFMP. In fact, if you are an active-duty service member, enrollment in EFMP is mandatory. But understand, enrollment doesn't negatively impact military careers.
If your family member has a qualifying medical or educational need, you should enroll in EFMP. Check with your service for additional information about enrollment:

Customize the EMFP & Me tool on Military OneSource to receive a checklist full of information and resources personalized for you and your family member with special needs. You don't need to create an account to use EFMP & Me, but if you do, your account is private, your personal info isn't captured and you can SAVE your checklists to update and use throughout your MilLife journey.
Creating an EFMP & Me account does NOT enroll you in the Exceptional Family Member Program.
