If I'm not able to obligate for an additional 4 years of service because I'm nearing retirement of the military won't offer me the chance to reenlist can I still be approved for transfer of entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill?
The Department of Defense (DoD) is responsible for determining eligibility for transfer of entitlement. The law provides that an individual must have served at least 6 years in the Armed Forces and aggress to serve a minimum of 4 more years. However, the law permits DoD to modify the number of additional years an individual must serve by regulation. DoD is currently developing their policies and regulations to implement the transferability program. As information becomes available from DoD, we will make it available on our website.
