Soon, the standards for eligibility will change for military members wanting to transfer their education benefits (TEB) from their Post-9/11 GI Bills to qualifying family members. Effective July 12, 2019, service members will need to have at least six years of service time and a minimum of 48 months remaining on their current military contract to remain eligible. Members may still apply for TEB up until July 11, if they fall outside of these requirements and those listed in ALCOAST 263/18. If you have questions about TEB, visit PSC’s Personnel Services Division’s Portal page and MilConnect’s "How To Transfer Education Benefits" page to guide you through the transfer request process. Members with questions concerning their submitted application for TEB or obligated service requirements may contact Mr. Reidus Stokes Sr. at Reidus.Stokes@uscg.mil.
