The U.S. Navy has announced an update to the instruction governing the Post-9/11 GI Bill Educational Assistance Program that outlines specific steps for Sailors to follow to properly transfer their benefits to family members. Qualified active duty and Reserve Sailors may elect to transfer benefits to a spouse or children, with some or all benefits allocated to those named. The instruction includes the Transfer of Benefits (TEB) steps in order to create a simple checklist that Sailors can follow to ensure they successfully complete the process. The updated instruction is available at http://www.navy.mil/docs/1780.4.pdf.
