Considering transition

Transition from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) is a process every member and their family will experience at some point in their career.

It is important for a member and their family to be informed about the transition options and support available. A member should:

  • discuss transition with their chain of command
  • discuss transition with their family and support people
  • consider options within the ADF, including:
    • transferring to a different Service
    • continuing service in the Reserves
  • attend an ADF member and family Transition Seminar.
  • become aware of the costs of living civilians pay that ADF members receive as part of their conditions of service. Further details are provided in the available document

Preparedness questionnaire

The transition preparedness questionnaire will assist members and families to identify options and prioritise next steps.
