The most up-to-date and official informaton on the Post 9/11 GI Bill is availabl on the VA's official website www.gibill.va.gov.
To transfer benefits the veteran must be eligible for Chapter 33 education benefits. Be advised being able to transfer the Post 9/11 benefit is a retention tool. If you do not fulfill your requirement, VA has the option to withdraw the transfer back to the first date of transfer, which can lead to overpayment. Additional information is available on the VA's GI Bill Website.
The veteran must also be a member of the Armed Forces (Active Duty, Selected Reserve or National Guard, officer or enlisted) on or after August 1, 2009, who is eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and:
Once a veteran makes the decision to transfer the benefits they will have to complete the following steps.
1. Go to http://milconnect.dmdc.mil
a. Fill out an application. If the veteran does not have a password they may request one through the same website.
2. Once DoD allows transferability the veteran will be able to go back to the website and print off verification of transferability. We are suggesting 7-10 duty days, could be more or less.
3. The dependent who is receiving the benefit must send a copy of the letter from DoD and completed VA Form 22-1990E, either hard copy or at the GI Bill website via VONAPP.
4. Once the dependent receives the Certificate of Eligibility (COE) they may go to the accredited school and turn in the COE to the Certifying Official (CO) who in turn will certify the student for that semester they are attending. (the student must contact the CO each semester they are enrolled in school to ensure payments are made)
