Deploying isn’t considered a Qualifying Life Event (QLE), by itself. If a sponsor’s family chooses to relocate to a new country, city, or region during the service member’s deployment, the change of address for the active duty family members will trigger a QLE. Visit Moving to learn more.
Before deploying, sponsors should:
Always keep your family's information current in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS).
Make sure your family knows how to get health care while you're away.
