Transfer your

Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits

Interested in starting or transferring your Post 9/11/Montgomery GIBILL, you would have to contact the VA directly.
Please review the GIBILL information
1-888-442-4551

www.va.gov/education/about-gi-bill-benefits

 

Find out if you can transfer any of your unused Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to your spouse or dependent children.

 

Note: The Department of Defense (DoD) decides whether you can transfer GI Bill benefits to your family.

Am I eligible to transfer benefits?


You may be eligible to transfer education benefits if you’re on active duty or in the Selected Reserve and you meet all of the requirements listed below.

All of these must be true:

• You've completed at least 6 years of service on the date your request is
approved, and

• You agree to add 4 more years of service, and

• The person getting benefits has enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility

Reporting System (DEERS).

<h5 class="font_5"> Who’s covered?</h5>

Qualified dependents




What benefits can my qualified dependents get?


If the DoD approves the Transfer of Entitlement (TOE), your spouse or dependent children can apply for up to 36 months of benefits, and may be able to get money for:

• Tuition

• Housing

• Books and supplies




When can they use the transferred benefits?


These conditions apply to family members using transferred benefits: Spouses

  • May use the benefit right away
  • May use the benefit while you’re on active duty or after you’ve separated from service
  • Don’t qualify for the monthly housing allowance while you’re on active duty
  • May use the benefit for up to 15 years after your separation from active dutyChildren
  • May start to use the benefit only after you’ve finished at least 10 years of service
  • May use the benefit while you’re on active duty or after you’ve separated from service
  • May not use the benefit until they’ve gotten a high school diploma (or equivalency certificate), or have reached 18 years of age
  • Qualify for the monthly housing allowance even when you’re on active duty
  • Don’t have to use the benefit within 15 years after your separation from active duty, but can’t use the benefit after they’ve turned 26 years old.
Your dependents may still qualify even if a child marries or you and your spouse divorce. However, service members and Veterans can revoke (cancel) or change a TOE at any time. If you want to totally revoke transferred benefits for a dependent and you’re still in the service, please turn in another transfer request for the dependent through milConnect. If a dependent’s transfer eligibility (ability to get a TOE) has been totally revoked, you can’t transfer benefits again to that dependent.




How do I transfer the benefit?


While you’re still on active duty, you’ll request to transfer, change, or revoke a Transfer of Entitlement (TOE) through milConnect. You can’t apply for a TOE through us.
Transfer, change, or revoke a TOE

If the DoD approves the TOE, your family members may apply for benefits.

  • Apply online now, or

  • Apply by mail. Fill out and mail an Application for Family Member to Use Transferred Benefits (VA Form 22-1990E) to the nearest VA regional office.

Download VA Form 22-1990E (PDF)
Find your nearest VA regional office

Once you leave active duty, you can still provide a future effective date for when the TOE can be used, change the number of months transferred, or revoke the TOE by submitting a written request to VA through milConnect.

AF COOL

The Air University has begun its process of moving to the AU Help Desk database for support tracking and a better metric to provide faster customer service. 

The Air Force Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (AF COOL) Program and the Credentialing Programs Flight (DEAL) with the Community College of the Air Force will be changing our systems for managing day-to-day operations. Effective 1 May 2019, the AF COOL and CCAF/DEAL organizational boxes were taken off-line. In their place, you will request assistance through the Air University (AU) Service Desk.

 

Please view the YouTube link below for usage instructions.  

Please log on to the site @ https://auservicedesk.af.edu

use your email address as your user name and create a password. Select Student Request, CCAF Request, and use the inquiry type in the request drop down menu to select AF COOL or Professional Certifications.

Basic Airmen Eligibility Criteria

The AF COOL is a Total Force Enlisted program. It includes all enlisted AFSCs for RegAF, AFRES, ANG, and USSF. Funding will be provided for RegAF, USSF, AFRES, and ANG members on Title 10 or Title 32 (502F) active duty orders. Funding will not exceed a maximum of $4,500 per lifetime per Air and Space professional.

Enlisted RegAF, USSF, AFRES, and ANG component members participating in the Air Force COOL program must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Possess a 5-skill level in their Primary Air Force Specialty Code

  • Do not have an UIF, are not on a Control Roster, and are current on their most recent Fitness test at the time of application

  • Have a profile in AFVEC with an approved credentialing goal

  • Must obtain supervisor approval and complete the entire credential while on active duty status

Although the AF COOL program has expanded to allow Air and Space professionals to obtain unlimited credentials and licenses with their $4,500 cap, eligible members may attain only one credential at a time per category, i.e., Primary AFSC/Leadership, at AF expense. The AF will pay for the exam(s), books (NTE $500), admin/application fees, and recertification fees necessary for that one credential. Once the credentialing goal has been approved by the supervisor and supporting documentation uploaded into the educational goal (itemized price quote, vendor approval template, application, etc.), the member must create a separate funding request for each item – exams and/or books – and ensure the request matches the provided price quote. Senior NCOs (E-7 through E-9) may also be eligible for leadership and management credentials. The AF COOL Program has also expanded to allow for one non-AFSC related credential and one completed degree-associated credential, bachelors or higher. If a member fails the non-AFSC credential, he/she will be required to repay the cost of the credential. However, the maximum allowable lifetime benefit per Air and Space professional is still $4,500. This includes Senior NCO leadership, non-AFSC, and degree-associated credentials, and any re-certifications (if applicable, and with certain restrictions). Some exams may be very expensive while others are relatively inexpensive. Regardless of the cost, Air and Space professionals may only complete one AFSC-related credential, non-AFSC credential, or degree-associated credential at a time and, if eligible, one leadership credential. (NOTE: Recertification costs are paid by AF COOL only if the initial certification was also paid for with AF COOL funding).

Air and Space professionals cannot choose another certification until their results for previously taken exam(s), pass or fail, have been submitted. It is imperative that members choose a credential wisely and prepare for the exam. Members who fail to submit their grades within 120 days of test completion may be responsible for recoupment of some or all funding. For more information, consult with your base Education and Training Office or AF COOL Credentialing Program Office.
