Being a service member provides you with the honor of serving your country. In return for your service, there are plenty of additional benefits for you and your family. Don’t miss out – make sure these military perks are on your radar.
1. Transferability of the Post-9/11 GI Bill
Current service members and veterans up to 15 years after discharge are eligible for higher education funds, thanks to the Post-9/11 GI Bill. However, you don’t have to use the benefits exclusively on yourself or at all. Some or all of the funds can be transferred to a spouse or dependent children with approval from the U.S. Department of Defense.
