Pentagon announces changes to Post-9/11 GI Bill The Department of Defense issued a substantive change July 12 to department policy on the transfer by members of the uniformed services of Post-9/11 GI Bill educational benefits to eligible family member recipients. Effective one year from the date of this change, eligibility to transfer those benefits will be limited to service members with less than 16 years of total service (active duty service and/or selected reserves as applicable). Previously, there were no restrictions on when a service member could transfer educational benefits to their family members. The provision that requires a service member to have at least six years of service to apply to transfer benefits remains unchanged in the policy.
