WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The deadline for all Sailors who do not have the ability to serve four more years in the Navy to transfer their Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits to dependents is July 11, 2019. 

This deadline was established in a Department of Defense (DoD) policy which the Navy is implementing through NAVADMIN 020/19, released Jan. 24, 2019.

NAVADMIN 020/19 announced that for a limited time, Sailors with at least 10 years of service, who are unable to serve four additional years due to statute or standard policy, may transfer their education benefits to dependents if they agree to serve the maximum time authorized.  

The policy exception is retroactive to July 12, 2018 and ends July 11, 2019, after which Sailors will need to be able to commit to four years of service to transfer their benefits.  For example, enlisted Sailors within four years of high year tenure or officers within four years of their statutory limit of service are eligible.   

Effective immediately, Sailors with more than 15 years of service or who are subject to the exception to policy in NAVADMIN 020/19 do not need to obligate service before submitting a transfer of education benefits request.

Affected Sailors interested in transferring their benefits should complete the electronic statement of understanding on the MyNavy Education web page, then login to MilConnect to submit their benefits transfer request no later than July 11, 2019.

After submitting the benefits transfer request, Sailors must verify that they have obligated enough service to keep the benefits.  Sailors who separate from the Navy before their obligation end date will lose their dependents' education benefits and the Veterans Affairs will recoup any money allocated for education.

Sailors can access MyNavy Education at https://myeducation.netc.navy.mil/webta/home.html#nbb and MilConnect at https://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/.

For more information on Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits transfer procedures, read NAVADMINs 236/18 and 020/19.
