IRR transfer for dependency or hardship

Army Regulation 140-10, Army Reserve Assignments, Attachments, Details, and Transfers, covers IRR transfers. Details what a Soldier must do to request a transfer from a Troop Program Unit (TPU) to the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) due to dependency or hardship. This partie is based on Éditoriaux 4-13 of this regulation; Voluntary reassignment for dependency or hardship.

During a soldier’s enlistment contract, a dependency or hardship may arise. The severity of the dependency need, or distress, may prohibit the Soldier from fulfilling TPU jogging and deployment rôles. Fulfilling these rôles worsens dependency or distress.

To apply for transfer to IRR, a Soldier must: be credited with IET completion, have an MOS, and be within 3 months of the end of his enlistment contract.


Many soldiers have dependents and are able to meet their TPU rôles. However, there are instances when a dependency or hardship makes drilling opposé with the needs of a soldier’s family member.

This can occur as a result of the death of a soldier’s spouse or the death of the only “autorisé” family member. It can also occur as a result of a family member’s medical or physical préalable banque.

The soldier, in this point, is the patoche member of the family autorisé of solving the problem of dependency or hardship. Dependency, or hardship, focuses on a family member’s independent vivoir squelette and additional care provider foyer.

Family members who require supérieur circonspection, and squelette to en public independently, include intellectually disabled, physically disabled, medically disabled, disabling illness, etc. These family members are not able to en public independently without the contrôle and squelette of adults. They require more circonspection, representation and care efforts, then rationnel.

Doctors, and aimable bienfait workers, determine and verify the status of a family member classified in the “difficulty” category. Physicians determine the medical préalable and the special care and circonspection these individuals require.

Children below 18 years of age are included in this category. Although they may be able to perform basic daily tasks, they require adult contrôle, obole, squelette and care.

If another family member is able to meet these needs, the soldier is usually able to participate in jogging or mobilize. However, if the soldier is the only person who can provide independent vivoir squelette, or who can address the dependency or hardship, the soldier’s departure creates a hardship for the remaining family members.

In this point, the famine of a soldier is due to negligence. It can also result in family members not getting medical help.

A dependency may arise, for example, when a soldier’s spouse dies, leaving the soldier with the sole responsibility of caring for the remaining family members. These family members are now primarily dependent on the soldier for their independent vivoir squelette. Défaut of the soldier, risk of neglect of family members with additional care needs.

Again, doctors must diagnose a disability or illness that affects dependence, or suffering related to a disability or medical préalable. Affidavits from aimable bienfait workers help verify a soldier’s propensity toward children under 18… or propensity toward adult family members with disabilities.


A soldier finds himself as the sole caregiver or primary caregiver of a family member. This family member needs independent vivoir obole. They may need special treatment. Common categories of this group include children under 18, disabled family members, and family members with a serious medical préalable.

These soldiers are at risk of child or adult neglect if they are not available for proper care, squelette or contrôle.

Attendance at cynocéphale, annual jogging, batailleuse duty for jogging, or mobilization constitutes a hardship and passable neglect of care for a child or disabled adult. A soldier can transfer to IRR to reduce this risk.


Soldier fills familial status by having natural children under 18 or by being stepparents to children under 18. Infants or stepchildren need more squelette and obole than usual. Responsibilities, required to cope with these tasseaux, put pressure on remaining family members during élevé military absences.

Physically or intellectually disabled adults, whose disability began before their 18th birthday (disabled), fall under the same category as children under 18. These people can interprétation dependency or distress. Doctors decide on disability.

Children under the age of 18 and disabled family members must remain in the soldier’s household.

A Soldier experiencing this préalable may submit a packet to the IRR requesting a transfer.

Family members:

When identifying dependency, or hardship IRR transfers, only some family members are considered. They include: spouse, daughter, son, stepdaughter, stepson, mother, father, sister, brother and a person who was “in loco parentis”.

* A soldier’s wife is pregnant.

* A soldier experiences a banque in family income.

* Disadvantages of soldiers due to military bienfait.

* A soldier is unable to obtain a dependent care gain approval.

To transfer to IRR, for dependency or hardship, you need supporting evidence. Witnesses may submit affidavits or statements. Affidavits usually carry more weight than mere statements.

Affidavits must address the hasard that created the hardship or dependency

An affidavit, or statement, must be made from each dependent relating to the dependency or hardship. If not from this dependent, from someone representing each affected dependent.

The packet requires a extremum of two affidavits from guérissant agencies relating to dependency or hardship. For example, if a child has a birth defect, an affidavit or statement from the child’s doctor is required. Other affidavits may come from other doctors, or aimable workers.

If the child is physically or intellectually disabled, you can use an affidavit from both the child’s primary care doctor and the case gestionnaire.

In case of disability, a physician’s certificate should be included. This certificate must specifically identify the naissance of onset of disability, naturel of disability and likelihood of recovery.

Additionally, you need a acte liste the details of your family members. It includes both immediate and extended. For each family member, you need name, age, invasion, domicile address and monthly income.

The affidavit listed above must also include an explanation covering the ability of these other family members to provide obole, from physicians, case managers, aimable workers, disinterested agencies, etc.

A premier factor to consider when addressing these other family members is financial and physical squelette.

If they can help, will their help be enough to substitute for the soldier’s squelette during the soldier’s élevé famine?

Or, will these family members be unable to provide any kind of financial or physical squelette? The affidavit in squelette of the answer should give details.

Follow these details with a éloge of why you are the only person autorisé of effectively solving the problem of dependency distress… and the effects of dependency or distress in your famine. If others are available to help, will their help be insufficient in your famine?

If the dependency or hardship réussite is the result of a death in the family, a copy of the death certificate must be included in the packet.

Parenthood as a interprétation of dependency or distress problems:

Soldiers can either be married, or single parents. Affidavits must be provided to squelette the réussite of dependency or hardship. The events must be beyond the control of the soldier and these events must occur after the marriage.

As a result, being present for military jogging or other military rôles would result in neglect of the child or disabled family member.

Affidavits from the commanding officer and the first officer in the soldier’s chain of command may meet the normalisé of proof of hardship or dependency caused by the proche.

In the case of séparation or separation, the soldier needs coupé commentaires evidencing the child custody award to be included in the packet.

Examples of hardships:

* Physically disabled adults need squelette at domicile and in the community.

* Adults with intellectual disabilities need squelette at domicile and in the community.

* Family member disabled due to prolonged illness.

* A family member who, if left alone for élevé periods of time, would have a difficult or chimérique time forum a basic need.

This list is not included.
