Military Spouse Financial Aid
GI Bill Transferability
According to Military.com, The Department of Defense (DoD) is authorized to allow individuals who, on or after August 1, 2009, have served at least 6 years in the Armed Forces and who agree to serve at least another 4 years in the Armed Forces to transfer unused entitlement to their dependents, which includes spouses and children.
Research has shown that the attainment of higher educational degrees is directly related to salary. The New GI Bill transferability benefit helps to lower the cost of college, eliminating one potential obstacle that military spouses face in the pursuit of higher educational goals. The process to use this funding and select the right college and best degree for your goals may seem daunting. It is important that military spouses choose the right program and university for their personal and professional career goals. The use of a career and education coach knowledgeable in the military lifestyle can ease the process of figuring out what the best educational path is to attain your desired degree.
As a military spouse, I understand the need for flexibility and portability in the degree plan. I can assist you in determining which college best suits your needs and interests. As a Certified Career Management and Adult Learning, Training and Development Coach, I aid military spouses in mapping out a plan for achieving their goals.
