ALCGPSC 115/17 SUBJ: POST-9/11 G.I. BILL DMDC MILCONNECT TRANSFER OF EDUCATION BENEFITS PORTAL ERROR 1. Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) is experiencing issues with personnel attempting to transfer their Chapter 33 Post-9/11 G.I. Bill education benefits to their dependents. Eligible dependents are not showing up in the DMDC milConnect Post-9/11 G.I. Bill Transfer of Education Benefits (TEB) portal. DMDC is working on a fix for this issue and hopes to have it repaired soon. 2. Personnel interested in transferring their post-9/11 G.I. Bill education benefits should attempt to transfer their benefits in the TEB portal daily until they are successful. Service members should screenshot their transfer of education benefits request showing the date/time, along with error message received, for proof of TEB attempt. Service members who recently reenlisted or extended to obligate the mandatory 48-month armed service for TEB will have their transfer request date adjusted to reflect the date they attempted to transfer their benefits while the TEB web application is down. This adjustment only applies to service members who have 48 months remaining on their current armed forces contract on the date of TEB request. 3.
