“Change is the only constant in life.”
- Heraclitus, Greek philosopher
Circumstances and situations for Exceptional Family Member Program (EMFP) families may change throughout their lifetime. What happens when it’s time to end enrollment in EFMP. While EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program, EFMP processes hundreds of disenrollment requests each year for families who have had a change in their situation. Following are the steps for ending enrollment in EFMP.
Reason to end enrollment in EFMP:
In FY2021 Headquarters EFMP discontinued enrollment for 1,973 family members. For more information or to speak to someone about ending your enrollment as an EMFP family, contact your installation’s EFMP.
If your child is receiving special education services, you may also be concerned about how to best prepare for a smooth Permanent Change of Station (PCS) transition with your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) governs how states and public agencies, including the DoD, provide early intervention, special education and other related services to eligible children from birth through age 21.
The importance of caring for yourself is equally as great as caring for your loved ones. As a caregiver, it’s important to practice self-care to be at your best for your loved ones. That’s where the EFMP can help.
The EFMP lending library has many great items that can be loaned to supplement your household during the transition. The library includes books, sensory items, and assistive devices for EFMP families.
