REASSIGNMENTS FOR HUMANITARIAN REASONS (HUMS)

 

Policy Guidance: MILPERSMAN 1300-500

Detailing authorities are aware of the hardships that confront Navy families and the additional aggravation
imposed by long absences of Service members from their families. Emergency leave frequently provides
sufficient time to alleviate such hardships; however, when Service members require more time than leave
can provide and have a chance of resolving the hardship within a reasonable period, reassignment for
humanitarian reasons (HUMS) may be requested.

A request for reassignment will not be disapproved because a Service member is needed in duties assigned.
This article contains the general guidelines concerning application and assignment options available.
 
Screening by Service Member's Command

Prior to considering HUMS reassignment for Service members assigned overseas, review MILPERSMAN 1300-306
to see if early return might be a more appropriate course of action.
