Title, Associated Form, and OMB Control Number: Exceptional Family Member Program, DD Form 2792, Family Member Medical Summary, and DD Form 2792-1, Special Education/Early Intervention Summary. OMB Control Number 0704-0411.
Needs and Uses: This information collection requirement is necessary to screen members of military families to determine if they have special medical (DD Form 2792) and/or educational (DD Form 2792-1) conditions so that these conditions can be taken into consideration when the Service member is being assigned to a new location with his/her family. The information is used by the personnel system to identify special considerations for future assignments. Local and state school and early intervention personnel complete DD Form 2792-1 for children requiring special educational services. The DD Form 2792 and DD Form 2792-1 are also used by TRICARE Managed Care Support Contractors to support a family member's application for further entitlements, and other Service-specific programs that require registration in the Exceptional Family Member Program. The DD Form 2792 and DD Form 2792-1 associated with this information collection, may be voluntarily submitted by a perspective civilian employee to the civilian personnel office to identify family members who have special needs in order to advise the civilian employee of the availability of services in the location where they will be potentially employed. The DD Form 2792-1 must be completed if the civilian employee intends to enroll his or her child in a school funded by the DoD.
Affected Public: Individuals or households; State and local education personnel.
Annual Burden Hours: 20,050.
Number of Respondents: 44,555.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Average Burden per Response: .45 hours (27 minutes).
The Military Departments of the Department of Defense screen all family members prior to a Service member being assigned to an overseas location and to some assignments in the United States. DD Form 2792, Family Member Medical Summary, and/or DD Form 2792-1, Special Education/Early Intervention Summary, will be completed for family members who have been identified with a special medical and/or educational need to document the medical and/or educational needs and service requirements. Their needs will be matched to the resources available at the overseas location to determine the feasibility of receiving appropriate services in that location. The information is used by the Military Service's personnel offices for purposes of assignment only and to advise the civilian employee of the availability of the needed services. The DD Form 2792 and DD Form 2792-1 are also used by TRICARE Managed Care Support Contractors to support a family member's application for further entitlements, and other Service-specific programs that require registration in the Exceptional Family Member Program.
