What Are The Post 911 GI Bill Transfer Rules?

rated by 1 People

I am looking to get married in a year or so and I am currently in the process of getting my bachelors.  My father recently transferred his Post 911 Bill to me.  If I get married  - will that vanish since I will no longer be his dependent?  Also - can the GI Bill be retracted - as in can he take it back completely to use the remaining for himself?  Thanks:) - Jessica T.

To answer the first part of your question your marriage will not affect your eligibility to receive the educational benefit that your father transferred to you under the Post 911 GI Bill.  You can continue to use them up to the age of 26.

Your second question is a very interesting one.  Your father retains the right to revoke or modify the transfer he made to you at any time.  The benefit remains the property of the service member who earned the benefit.  Your father has the right to use some of the benefit himself or redesignate  who receives this benefit at any time.  This redesignatin could be to one or more family members for the balance of the remaining benefit.

For additional detail it would be best to go to hhtp://
