Plan My Move

Plan My Move is an online moving tool provided by Military OneSource that generates a personalized checklist based on the parameters of your move, complete with general and installation-specific information. The checklist can be customized based on your role and the circumstances of your move, including whether you need continued EFMP services. The checklist items are generalized and non-specific, so it is important that you expand upon it and customize it to better prepare your child for the move.

Here is an expanded checklist tool that can help prepare for you and your child for the move.
