GI Bill.jpg

 Beginning July 12, all actively serving members of the armed forces with 16 or more years of service will no longer be able to transfer their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to their family members, as change one to DoD Instruction (DoDI)1341.13, Post-9/11 GI Bill, dated 12 July 2018, takes effect. (You can read the Department of Defense announcement of the change at dod.defense. gov/News/Article/Article/1573240/) As a result of the change, Soldiers are highly encouraged to transfer their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits as soon as they become eligible (not flagged, have six or more years of service, and at least one eligible family member in DEERS) to avoid missing out on this family benefit. 

To transfer benefits, go to: https:// www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/, or https://www.milsuite.mil/book/ docs/DOC-634821. For more, call the Barden Education Center, 703-805- 9264.
