Step-by-Step Guide for how to Transfer GI Bill Benefits

You must meet all eligibility requirements outlined in DoDI 1341.13, Change 1, Post-9/11 GI Bill and AFI 36-2649, Voluntary Education Program, Attachment 13, prior to applying for the Transfer of Education Benefits or TEB. NOTE: Airmen must have at least six years in service (active duty and/or selected Reserve) and effective 12 July 2019, no more than 16 years in Service. Purple Heart Recipients see TEB Purple Heart Recipients.

Access virtual MPF (vMPF) via AFPC Secure:

vMPF Navigation

  1. Click on vMPF

  2. Validate your contact information by clicking on 'I have verified my email and phone' (all correspondence will come to this address)

  3. Click on Self Service Actions

  4. Click on Transfer of Education Benefits

  5. Click the TEB hyperlink to submit a TEB application via MilConnect

NOTE: Airmen CANNOT submit a TEB request through the Department of Veterans Affairs or DVA website. Airmen experiencing difficulties with the TEB application should contact the myPers - Total Force Service Center.

MilConnect Navigation

  • Read the "Message from the Service Component"

  • Designate the number of months to each dependent (any dependent who is not allocated at least one (1) month of benefits will be ineligible for transferred benefits after the Airman retires/separates/is deceased in accordance with AFI 36-2649, Attachment 13, A13.18.7.2.3.)

  • Acknowledge all statements on the application

  • Select "Submit Request" (status in MilConnect will change to "Submitted")

Upon receipt of the Initial Notification email from the myPers-TFSC:

Purple Heart Recipients:

  • Respond to the incident with the following statement: "I am a Purple Heart Recipient requesting TEB approval IAW DTM-18-006"

All other applicants:

  • Obtain required retainability plus one (1) month to meet eligibility (if applicable).
    Enlisted members who extend their enlistment for the purpose of transferring Post-9/11 GI Bill entitlement who later decide to cancel (revoke) TEB may not cancel the extension or the associated active duty service commitment. Canceling TEB is not a reason to cancel an executed Post-9/11 GI Bill extension in accordance with AFI 36-2606, Reenlistment in the United States Air Force, Chapter 6

  • Sign the TEB Statement of Understanding. The TEB SOU will only appear in an Airman's vMPF (Self Service Actions/Transfer of Education Benefits) once 72 hours have passed since submitting the application in MilConnect AND the Airman meets retainability requirements

NOTE: Both actions above must be accomplished within 30 days of the myPers-TFSC Initial Notification or the application will expire and the Airman must reapply for TEB.

When an Airman has secured the required retainability and signed the TEB SOU, the TFSC personnel will approve the TEB application in MilConnect within three duty days. To determine the status of your application, visit the MilConnect website. Upon approval, you will receive an additional notification. If you have questions regarding your application, you may respond to your incident in 'My Account'. Once you have logged on to My Account, select the "Transfer of Educational Benefits" case file by clicking on the incident/case with the subject of TEB.

For more information on Post-9/11 GI Bill TEB, visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website, or contact the myPers - Total Force Service Center.
