TRANSFER OF EDUCATION BENEFITS (TEB)
Federal law allows current serving members who haven't completely exhausted all of their GI Bill® entitlements, the option of transferring unused benefits under the Chapter 33 (Forever/Post 9/11) GI Bill® program to their spouse or DEERS eligible dependent(s).
In order to complete a Transfer of Education Benefits (TEB) election, Service Members are required by law to agree to an additional service obligation. Those who fail to complete this obligation (to include retirement), will have their TEB election terminated and any funds received from TEB will be recouped.

The Chapter 33 (Post 9/11; a.k.a. Forever) GI Bill® program is different than other GI Bill® programs in calculating how much assistance will be provided. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs bases their decision on what to pay on the Service Member or Veteran's amount of Chapter 33-qualifying service. The following will help identify how tier rates are calculated and what assistance is provided based on the corresponding tier rate.
