Can a Title 10 Air Force Reservist Transfer His Post 9/11 GI Bill to His Wife?

Q: My question is a general one. I am an officer in the Family Readiness Group and am often asked about the Post 9/11GI Bill. One scenario in particular is this…. I have a USANG TSGT (at this time is on Title 10 for 6 months) who has put in 7 years and was wanting to transfer his GI BILL to his wife. Can he do this and it be effective immediately?

A: To answer your first question, yes (provided he has at least four years left on his enlistment at the time he makes his request) he can make a transfer of his Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits and most likely get it approved.

He meets the first service requirement of having served for at least six years and he is currently serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, which includes all of the Reserves and the National Guard. He just has to meet that four-year enlistment remaining requirement.

Being he is on a Title 10 order, he meets the Post 9/11 GI Bill eligibility requirement of having served for a minimum of 90 days after September 10, 2001. However, with only six months of eligible service, he would be at the 50% tier. His wife would inherit this same tier percentage.

If he does submit a transfer request, it takes some time for it to be approved, so it would not be effective immediately, but it should be approved within a month or two.

Also know that if she does go to school while he is on a Title 10 order, she would not get the monthly housing allowance – only her tuition paid and the book stipend. Once off Title 10 orders, then she would start getting the housing allowance.
