Since 2009 the heroes that serve our country have been able to transfer the GI Bill benefits to their dependents or spouse. Over the past 10 years since this policy has been active over 1 million Veterans have chosen to give their benefits to their family. We believe this program honors the sacrifice that Servicemembers make to earn these benefits by ensuring Veterans can choose how to utilize the benefits in the way that is best for them and their family who share in that sacrifice.
However, without your help, in January the Department of Defense plans to changes this important policy making it impossible for some to transfer their benefits to their children. We believe that showing our gratitude to Veterans is giving Veterans more freedom of choice not less.
Please take a few minutes to reach out to your Representative and Senators to voice your concerns about restricting the GI Bill Transferability.
