I have a sister that has ETS'd from the Navy for many years now.... Probably more than 20, and she is now looking into being able to give her daughter her GI Bill benefits. Is this Possible after so many years? What should she do to get the ball rolling so that her daughter can get started in school as soon as possible?

Thanks for any answers!

Sergeant G,

If she's been out for more than 20 years, she most likely has the older Montgomery G.I. Bill, like I had  (I ETS'd back in '96).

Under the Montgomery G.I. Bill, as far as I can recall, you only had 10 years from your separation date to use it and it was not transferable.

I hope this helps.

You cannot transfer the Montgomery GI Bill, which your sister has, you can only transfer the Post 9/11 GI Bill, but you must transfer BEFORE retirement and members must serve an additional four years to qualify for the transfer.
