The survey assesses topics such as financial well-being, reintegration programs following activation/ deployment, outreach to civilian employers, employer support, family support programs, and benefits (i.e., education, commissary/exchange, health care), and suicide awareness. Data are aggregated by appropriate demographics, including Service, paygrade, gender, race/ethnicity, activation status, and other indicators. In order to be able to meet reporting requirements for DoD leadership, the Military Services, and Congress, the survey needs to be completed by fall 2021. As required by the NDAA, the results of this survey are used by each of the Service Secretaries to evaluate and update training. In addition, the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness uses the SOFS–R to suggest changes to services supporting Reserve component members’ ability to return to their families and their civilian jobs following activation/deployment as well as addressing retention, health care, and family life issues.
