Big Changes to Post 9/11 G.I. Bill: What You Need To Know

The quick summary is:

  1. Effective July 12, 2019, service members desiring to transfer their Post 9/11 GI Bill benefit to a spouse or children will need to do so no later than their 16th year of service.
  2. Effective immediately, any sailors and naval officers who can’t serve four additional years is ineligible to transfer the benefit. This affects Navy personnel ineligible due to their time in grade as well as those with an impending medical retirement.
  3. Regardless of where you are in your career, if you are considering transferring the benefit to one or more of your dependents, it’s best to do so now, before the new rule takes effect.
