DD Form 214

Overview

Complete the DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty in the Virtual Military Personnel Flight. Ensure you carefully review your DD Form 214 Worksheet. Provide your local personnel office with any source documents that are not contained in either your electronic personnel record in the Personnel Records Display Application or the Military Personnel Data System.

 

The DD Form 214, provides you with a concise record of military service. The form also provides government agencies with information needed to administer the federal and state laws that apply to members who separate from the military. For instance, the Veterans Administration uses the form to determine eligibility for benefits they administer, and the Department of Labor uses it for unemployment compensation.

 

Additionally, the DD Form 214 Worksheet will be used to determine re-employment rights for you. Inaccurate information on the DD Form 214 Worksheet could result in delay or denial of benefits.

 

If you are an active-duty member or an Active Guard Reserve (AGR) (Title 10) member on active duty and have an approved separation, the review of your DD Form 214 Worksheet prior to finalization is highly recommended to ensure the accuracy of your final DD Form 214 Worksheet prior to completion/distribution.

 

Due to possible changes in security measures within AFPC SECURE applications effective March 30, 2018, service members with an email address not ending in ".mil" may no longer be able to access vMPF to complete or review DD Form 214 worksheets. If you are at a ".mil" domain, you will have access to AFPC SECURE and can log into vMPF to submit and/or review your DD214 worksheet.
