Since you are still in the military, use the Transfer of Education Benefits (TEB) Web site to designate, modify and revoke a Transfer of Entitlement (TOE) request. After leaving the military, you may provide a future effective date for use of the TOE, modify the number of months transferred, or revoke entitlement transferred by submitting a written request to the Department of Veterans Affairs. After separating from the military, you cannot designate new dependents to receive transferred entitlement, or amend the effective date of the initial transfer of entitlement to an earlier date.
