I recently found out about some limitations with regard to transferring the post 9/11 GI Bill to dependents for higher education. If one wants to transfer their GI Bill to one of their dependents they must meet several qualifications including transferring the bill to their dependent BEFORE their dependent turns 21 years old. The dependent will then have until they are 26 years of age to use the bill to pay for their higher education costs. Bottom Line: make sure you do your research early with important benefits such as these so you and your dependents don't miss out. What lessons have you learned in reference to transferring the Post-9/11 GI Bill to your dependents?
