As a Title 32 AGR, When Will My Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits Be Transferable?

Q: I’m currently Title 32 AGR and have been since 1988. I did one tour in Iraq from Feb 2009 to Feb 2010. My one-year deployment provided me eligibility for 60% Post 9/11 GI Bill benefit. Now that 2.0 has passed, and T32 AGR time is counted, at what point will I be fully vested for 100% benefit? And will my GI Bill benefits still be transferable to my dependents? Thank you.

A: According to the GI Bill 2.0 rules, Title 32 time only counts from August 1, 2009 and forward. Since it takes 36 months to be fully vested in the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and you have already served 12 eligible months, you would need an additional 24 months for full vestment. Since you had six months of eligible T32 time before you deployed and 12 months of Title 10 time during the deployment, you would need an additional 18 months of eligible T32 time to get you to 36 months. That should make you fully vested somewhere around August 2012. But, you would not be able to use your Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits acquired through T32 time until after October 1, 2009 anyway– crazy huh?

As far as transferability of benefits to your dependents, you can make a transfer request once you are fully vested in the Post 9/11 GI Bill. As far as the exact mechanics of how that request will happen, I have not seen anything on it yet. For military personnel, they access the transfer option through the TEB website. Keep reading this blog as I will post the instructions as soon as I know what they will be.
