DOD Reverses GI Bill Transfer Policy for Wounded WarriorsSeptember 10, 2018 | :
by Amy Bushatz
Purple Heart recipients on active duty will soon be exempt from a new policy barring troops from transferring their post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits to their dependents if they cannot commit to an additional four years of service.
The policy update, announced in July, immediately excluded those who could not extend their service by four years, including wounded troops in the medical retirement process, from the ability to transfer. A change that takes effect in July 2019 will also block those with 16 years of service from making the switch.
