New bill would ease GI Bill transfer rules for vets, military families like never before

from Military Times

A new proposal would eliminate the Pentagon's recent Post-9/11 GI Bill transfer restrictions and, for the first time in the history of the benefit, allow some vets to pass it to their family members. Sen. Cory Booker, a prominent New Jersey Democrat, plans to introduce the Veteran Education and Transfer Extension Act in Congress. Booker's bill would allow veterans who did not have dependents when they left the military to transfer the benefit should they get married or have children later in life. Under current rules, the transfer must happen while the eligible service member is still in the military. In addition to this significant expansion of the benefit, Booker's bill would also wipe away the Defense Department's controversial new transfer rules. more
