It is amazing how fast mis-information gets out about a program. Because service members and veterans can opt into Post 9/11 GI Bill from Montgomery GI Bill, they all assume they can also transfer their education benefits (TEB).
Unfortunately I have had to tell three people that they cannot.
If you are not on active duty, you cannot transfer the benefit. The VA website is a little vague but it does say - but only active duty members can go on the site to actually transfer the benefit. It makes that pretty clear in the policies on the DoD site.
Here is a more in-depth process for Transfer Education Benefit.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this benefit is only for members of the armed forces today - not veterans.
