Permissive Temporary Duty (PTDY) Leave

Remember, your Permissive TDY is not an “ENTITLEMENT” and may or may not be “AUTHORIZED” by the Commander.

Permissive TDY is authorized by the Commander only for specific INVOLUNTARY Enlisted Separations per AR 635-200 and INVOLUNTARY Officer Separations per AR 600-8-24.

Transition Leave

Transition Leave (leave you have accrued) is taken prior to your separation date. In block 12b of your DA Form 31, the end date MUST be your ETS or Resignation date.

Your ETS balance is minus any unprocessed leave and leave you plan to take from today until your ETS date.

You MUST clear the Installation BEFORE beginning Transition Leave.

Seperation Physical

All Soldiers transitioning are required to have their medical history verified on DD Forms 2807-1 and 2808 within 30 days of their ETS per DoDi 6040.46. Completion is recommended as early as 12 months and no later than 6 months prior to the start of PTDY, ETS Leave or Separation Date.

The completed DD Forms 2807-1 and 2808 are requirements for clearing the installation and must be provided to Transitions during your final-out appointment.

This is your last record of medical issues and it is essential that you have everything documented if you intend to make a claim for the VA Disability entitlements.
