Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

Welcome to the 65th Medical Brigade EFMP Webpage

The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a Department of Defense program designed to identify and document the special medical and/or educational needs of a soldier’s family members and ensure that those needs are considered during the assignment process. Enrollment in the EFMP is mandatory for all active duty military sponsors who have family members with special medical and/or educational needs. Enrollment should be completed at the time of initial diagnosis of medical problems and/or awareness of educational concerns. The program applies to adults as well as children up to 21 years of age. EFMP screening is required for all sponsors requesting command sponsorship, consecutive overseas tours, AIP or an addition to orders.

What is the EFMP?

The 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.
EFMP family support services are available at your installation. The family support services team is your main point of contact for EFMP information.
They can connect you with:
  • Military Support Services and Resources
  • Community Support Services and Resources
The family support services team can also answer specific EFMP questions based on your branch or installation.
