    Question Transferring GI Bill?

    Advertisements
    DH told me tonight that when he comes home next year that he'd like to transfer his GI benefits to me for school. I was wondering if anyone knows any more information about it and how we would go about doing it?

    Thanks in advance!

    we're in the middle of it right now. So far, dh had to fill out the application and then request to transfer. dh had served 9 years but only had 3 left on his contract so he had to extend or reenlist for at least one more year so that he had at least 4 years on his contract. Now I need to fill out something, which is what I should be working on this week, but I'm a fabulous procrastinator ()

    My DH transferred his and I'm using it now for classes. He had to have at least 6 years and retention for 4 years (he had to re-enlist and sign paperwork even though he had 16 years in). The school I wanted to go to helped with all the paperwork and made it pretty easy. First he had to fill out paperwork to transfer benefits, then I had to fill out paperwork to use the benefits, then the school sent in paperwork to request the money.

    def check out the link, the biggest thing is that the member must have 6 years in and commit to 4 more in order to transfer to a dependant.
