My husband is in the process of applying for his Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. And then he will transfer them. My question as I couldn't really find this anywhere on the website and am too impatient to wait as we continue the process...... If the recipient of the benefit (who would be a family member, as the benefit has been transferred at this point) had been enrolled in a qualifying college/program, and enrolled prior to the application for the Post 9/11 benefits, can the request for tuition reimbursement/BAH benefit be made retroactive back to the date of enrollment in college? I'm thinking it is "possible" as there is a limit to the number of months total (36) benefits would be paid. So regardless of when application/approval is made, so long as the recipient was in college, and it is limited to 36 months, the benefits would even be retroactive. If you know. Thanks. S P.S. Just a suggestion.....maybe there should be a separate category on the board for "financial issues - tuition, loans, employer reimbursement, government programs, etc." Anyone else think there are sufficient discussions on these financial topics to warrant a separate category?
