The Post-9/11 GI Bill® allows officer or enlisted, active-duty or Reserve Component service members, serving on or after Aug. 1, 2009, to transfer unused education benefits to immediate family members (spouse and children). As a military spouse, you may be eligible to receive this transfer.
If you are interested in continuing your education, you may want to explore this option. The cost of education continues to rise, but receiving an education can increase your career possibilities and earnings, now and in the future. Using your spouse's GI Bill® to further your education can cover many of your college costs and prove to be a wonderful investment in your family's future.
If you have questions about GI Bill® transferability or want to learn other ways to help pay for college, check out the Education, Training and Licensing lifecycle stage of MySECO. If you wish to speak to someone about your education needs, call a career coach at 800-342-9647.
