When Will I Hear Back On My Benefits Transfer to My Daughter?

Q: I submitted to transfer my credits to my daughter, but have not heard anything and I’m having a hard time locating someone to help.

A: I couldn’t get a sense of how long it has been since you submitted your Post 9/11 GI Bill transfer request, but if it has been less than 8 weeks, I would not get too excited yet. The VA is overwhelmed this time of year with all the new students starting school in addition to returning students.

I’m assuming you made the transfer request using the TEB website, and that is where you will have to go to check on the status. Once you submitted it, the Status block changed to “Pending”. Now you will want to go back periodically and watch for that to change to “Approved” and a date in the Status Date block.

Once you see the status change to approved, your daughter can submit VA Form 22-1990e to get her Certificate of Eligibility. She will need that certificate when she enrolls in school.
