    Question Giving away his GI bill?

    Advertisements
    OK so I'm not sure how comfortable I am with this. It was db's idea so don't hate me for saying this. He says that if I take a year off school and then we can get married (cart, horse much? ) then he wants to give me his GI bill, the part where he gets money for school. Can he do that? I've heard you can and you can't.

    I think he has to be in the military for quite a while to be able to do that, if at all. I don't remember all the details now.

    i think he has to be in for so long before he can transfer it to you.
    Don't judge someone just because they sin differently than you.

    It's based on how much time he has in currently, and they recently added an extra time commitment for service members who transfer benefits.

    But, yes, it can be done. It's just a few pieces of papers and a signature. PM me if you have any questions, I'm using my dad's GI bill for school.

    This is what db had mentioned. Thanks. I don't know if I like this idea. He didn't join til 2008 so I'll have to wait 3 more years, I think

    If I am not mistaken, it's six years with a contract that extends to 10 years

    Plus, I'm not sure how comfortable I feel with him giving it to me anymore. I feel like it's his and should stay that way. He's the one that served the time

    I would feel the same way. Plus, what if he changes his mind and down the road he wants to go to school and then he won't be able to use his GI bill on himself? I'd feel bad then taking it away from him. You really need to discuss it in depth with him, and if he won't be able to sign it over to you for another 3 years, at least you won't make any decisions right now he might regret later, ya know?
