How Do I Check the Status of a TEB Transfer?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: Hi! I was wondering what the website is to check the status of the TEB process and if I can go ahead and file for a certificate or do I have to wait for approval. Last but not least, is there a website or a phone number where someone can help me find a good school to get my BA please.

A: I’m assuming you were the intended recipient of Post 9/11 GI Bill transferred benefits, otherwise you would know to go to the same website to check TEB benefits as you did when you made the transfer. If you are the recipient, you will have to have your sponsor check on the transfer status.

Once the Status changes from Pending Review to Approved, you can go to the VONAPP website and submit VA Form 22ÔÇö1990e. That will get you your Certificate of Eligibility that you need when you enroll in school. It can take 8 to 10 weeks from the time the transfer request was made to get approved, so don’t get impatient if it hasn’t been at least that long.

As far as looking for a school, you will want to pick a school that is GI Bill approved. You can go to the VA’s Find a School search engine and look by state or country for schools already approved. As far as recommending a school, I’m not at liberty to do so. Most are good and some are known for specializing in a discipline, such as teaching, more than other schools that are more generalized in what they teach.
