POST-9/11 GI BILL POLICY UPDATE – NAVADMIN 170/21
Foster children and legal wards are now considered eligible dependents for the purposes of Post-9/11 GI Bill transfer of education benefits (TEB). This change went into effect on 5 January 2021.
Service Members currently serving on Active Duty (AD) or in the Selected Reserve (SELRES) who have been approved for TEB, may transfer benefits to foster children or legal wards who have been residing with the Service Member, pursuant to a court order, for at least 12 consecutive months.
For AD and SELRES previously approved for TEB and who have foster children or legal wards listed in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS), the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) made these dependents available to receive transferred benefits but did not assign them any months. Service Members should take action described in paragraph 5c to allocate benefits as desired.
AD and SELRES not yet approved for TEB must follow paragraphs 5a-5c to transfer benefits to eligible foster children and legal wards.
After transfer of benefits to a foster child or legal ward, termination of the foster child/legal ward relationship does not rescind the transferred benefits. The former foster child or legal ward will remain eligible until they reach 26 years of age, or the transferor revokes the TEB.
Children who are no longer in a foster or legal ward status, or who had their association with the Service Member terminated in DEERS, without having at least one month of Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits allocated to them by the
Service Member prior to termination of their status, are not eligible to receive transferred education benefits.
