DA Form 5158, Reassignment Status and Election Statement, is a form used at the beginning of the soldier's reassignment cycle or as a basis for initiating specific assignment processing. This specific assignment processing includes deletion, deferments, additional service, and any other special processing.
The latest version of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as DD Form 5118 - was released by the U.S. Department of the Army (DA) on October 1, 2012, with all previous editions being obsolete. An up-to-date DA Form 5118 fillable version is available for download and online filing below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website.
The DA 5118 is used to conduct the initial pre-reassignment screening to determine the soldier's eligibility to comply. Disclosure of any personal information is voluntary, but failing to file will result in unnecessary delays in reassignment.
