DA Form 5118 Reassignment Status and Election Statement

What Is DA Form 5118?

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 the DD Form 5118 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) in October 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.

DA Form 5118 Instructions

The 5118 DA form consists of four main parts.

Part I (Military Personnel Division/Personnel Service Company) is filled after comparing the EDAS cycle with the Soldier’s Personal Qualification Record (DA Form 2-1).

The first section is unnamed and requires the Soldier to enter their name, social security number, grade, primary military occupational specialty (PMOS) code, additional skill identifier (ASI), and control language and provide information about their current unit, gaining unit, the Enlisted Distribution Assignment System (EDAS) cycle, the date of filling the form and the arrival date.

The rest of Part I is divided into Sections A through C filled by the Military Personnel Division or Personnel Service Company and certified by the reassignment clerk.

Part II (Battalion Status) is filled by the battalion commander's principal staff officer. The Soldier fills in only Items 1 through 15 and the officer fills in the entire Sections D and E. At the end of Part II, the battalion commander signs and dates the form before returning the form to the MPD or Personal Service Company with a completed Soldier Status and Election Statement attached.

Part III (Soldier Status and Election Statement) is filled in by the Soldier. Section F refers to the Soldier’s personal status, Section G requires information on the Soldier’s OCONUS (Outside the Continental United States) status. Each positive answer should be clarified in the Remarks box at the end of the form.

When Part III is complete, the Soldier signs and dates the section and continues to Part IV (Wartime Status).

The signed and completed DA 5118 Form is then handed in to the battalion S1.
