The U.S. Navy has released a new electronic form for completing the Statement of Understanding (SOU) needed to submit Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfer of Education Benefits (TEB) requests, and a new policy allowing Purple Heart recipients to transfer education benefits. Starting Oct. 1, Sailors will be able to complete the required SOU online via My Navy Portal, or the My Education website. Sailors should verify their current email information to ensure prompt feedback on TEB applications. Also, Purple Heart recipients are now immediately eligible to transfer their unused education benefits to their dependents.
