The Fort Benning In-Processing and Replacement Operations focuses on the installation in-processing requirements and individual Soldier readiness verification. AG Military Personnel Division (MPD) organizes the various installation agencies needed to welcome permanent party Soldiers and their Families to Fort Benning.
During the first full day of in-processing, all Soldiers/Service Members are required to attend a 4 hour session (0800-1200) that involves briefings given by AG MPD, DENTAC, MEDPROS, TRICARE, CID, On and Off-Housing, and Finance. Upon completion of these sessions, Soldiers/Service Members receive an in-processing schedule designed for each individual Soldier’s requirement for Fort Benning. Soldiers/Service Members will then proceed to complete other in-processing requirements identified on their in-processing schedule. Overall, it takes on average of 5 - 10 duty days based on your requirements. Other in-processing requirements will be conducted at the unit of assignment (i.e., Central Issue Facility, Security Clearance, etc.).
Mandatory Agencies include: DENTAC, MEDPROS, ON-POST HOUSING, OFF-POST HOUSING, FINANCE, Army Community Service, NEWCOMERS ORIENTATION, SPONSORSHIP, FINANCIAL READINESS TRAINING (1ST TERM SOLDIERS ON 1ST PCS), Resiliency and AG MPD.
Service Members that are approved for PTDY at their losing unit will take their PTDY and report to the gaining unit at the end of their leave as long as it is before their report day.
If you are arriving on Fort Benning to attend training or schools, in processing of Students and Trainees is coordinated by the Commander operating the course of instruction that the Soldier/Service Member is attending.
