As an AGR Airman, Can I Transfer My Post 9/11 GI Bill to My Daughter?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: I’m AGR for the Air National Guard since 2000 (not retired) and my daughter is 24 years old. I would like to transfer my Post 9/11 GI Bill to her to attend a 1-year trade school this August. Is this possible?

A: Yes it is possible for you to transfer your Post 9/11 GI Bill to her, but not by August. Before the passage of GI Bill 2.0, your AGR time did not count toward Post 9/11 GI Bill eligibility. Now your AGR time back to August 1, 2009 counts, so in August, you will have 24 months of eligibility, putting you at the 80% tier level. The issue is you can’t start using your Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits until October 1st, which means if you transfer your GI Bill to your daughter, she would not be able to start using her transferred benefits until then. Also, she would inherit the same tier level, so her schooling costs would only be covered at the 80%, meaning 80% of her tuition and fees would be paid, she would get 80% of the housing allowance and up to 80% of the book stipend.

To make a transfer request after August, go to the TEB website and enter the number of months you want to transfer to her. If her recorded is “greyed” out or it will not let you enter anything, then most likely the cause is you will have to extend your enlistment. Once you can enter information, the status will change to Pending Review. Keep checking back and watch for the status to change to “Approved”.

Once approved, then your daughter can go to the eBenefits website and submit VA Form 22-1990e so she can get her Certificate of eligibility which she will need when enrolling in school.
