There are big changes coming soon to the rules governing who is eligible to transfer their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to their dependents. On July 12, 2019, service members with 16 years or more of service will lose their eligibility to transfer their GI Bill benefits to family members. After July 12, only members who have between six and 16 years of service and agree to serve an additional four years will be eligible to sign up for the GI Bill transfer program. The exception to this rule, for those who are prevented from extending their service by an additional four years due to administrative reasons, still stands, albeit only for those members who have between 10 and 16 years of service.
