This website has been the most helpful. Everyone at the school and the VA kept telling me to be patient. Well, when I was patient, my application got lost, my benefits got denied, and now I wait. The reason my benefits got denied, was that my husband needed to extend his contract. They must serve 4 years after the grant has been transferred. So, luckily he is at a major military base and can meet with his career planner. Once that is done, I will probably have to resubmit my application for benefits to the VA. Did I mention school starts in two weeks?
To get the process rolling you will have to go to this site. There your service member can access the transfer application. (This is not handled by the VA. ) This has to be accepted before the VA can process your application. This is the part you need to make sure the service member has enough time left or extend their contract. Once that is done and accepted, you fill out an application through the VA. Here is another pamphlet with some great information! Good luck and don't let this benefit pass you by!
Lesson learned when using any VA benefits: Be proactive! When they tell you to be patient, ignore it and call daily! My school doesn't seem to be concerned, so I will let it all fall into place (with my daily phone calls.)
