What Is the Process to Transfer My Post-9/11 GI Bill to My Daughter?

Q: What is the process to transfer my Post-9/11 GI Bill to my daughter?

A: I’m making the assumption you are eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill transfer option by having served at least six years on active duty and agreeing to serve an additional four years, or that you are close to retirement. The other qualifier is that you are still on active duty–you can’t make a transfer once you are discharged.

If you meet both of the above requirements, then go to the TEB Website and after logging in, you will see your daughter’s file. Click on the Transfer Column and enter the number of months you want to transfer to her and a Transfer Begin date.

From the Submit Transfer Page, click on Post-9/11 GI Bill and check the boxes confirming you read and understand the statements. Click the Submit button.

If the submission is successful, you will see a Confirmation Page. The Information Section of the Submit Transfer Page will show a status of Submitted and a Status Request Date blank. Keep checking back on this page for updated status. When the transfer is complete, the status will change to Request Approved and the date of approval will be in the Status Request Date block.

The next step is for your daughter to submit VA Form 22-1990e. In return, she will get back a Certificate of Eligibility, which she will need when she goes to enroll in school.
