The transferability option under the Post 9/11 GI Bill allows service members to transfer unused benefits to their spouses or dependent children.
The Department of Defense (DoD) determines whether or not you can transfer benefits to your family members. To apply to transfer your benefits, please click the link here: (This website is only available to military members) https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/
Upon approval, family members may apply to use transferred benefits with the VA by completing VA Form 22-1990e.
