DA Form 137-2 Instructions
Filing guidelines and additional information on the DA 137-2 can be found in the Army Regulation 600-8-11, Reassignment, released in May 2007.
Make sure that you have read the instruction carefully before completing the form: failure to complete the form will result in it not being accepted, which - in turn - will result in a partial payment of final pay.
This form has three sections in total. Filing instructions are as follows:
- Section A, Personnel Information, is mostly self-explanatory. Enter your name, rank and orders number. Identify the gaining unit, the losing unit, the date of address and departure date.
- Section B, Installation Standard Clearance, is for specifying if you have any debt and providing amounts of those debts. All signatures in Section B are required prior to reporting to the processing control station (Section D) for final clearance. Not having the required signatures may cause a delay in receiving final clearance.
- Section C - Military Pay Processing - is devoted to Military payment clearances.
- Section D, Processing Control Station, is signed after collecting all other signatures.
