GI Bill Transferability Window is Closing – Don’t Miss Out!

Posted on Updated on

The Department of Defense released changes to department policy on the transfer by service members in the Uniformed Services of “Post-9/11 GI Bill” education benefits to eligible family members, July 2018.

As a reminder, effective July 12, 2019, any Sailor who has more than 16 years of total service will no longer be eligible to transfer education benefits to their dependents. Also, until July 12, 2019, an exception to policy allows Sailors with at least 10 years of service who are unable to serve four additional years, due to statute or standard policy, to transfer their education benefits to dependents if they agree to serve the maximum time authorized. For example, enlisted Sailors within four years of high year tenure or officers within four years of their statutory limit of service are eligible. Purple Heart recipients are exempt to this policy change.

For detailed information on transferring Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits and the exception to policy, read NAVADMIN 236/18.
