OMB Control Number: 2900-0708.
Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Abstract: Servicemembers on active duty may request to designate up to a maximum of 18 months of their educational assistance entitlement to their spouse, one or more of their children, or a combination of the spouse and children.

The servicemember must submit in writing to VA, the name of each dependent, the number of months of entitlement transferred to each dependent, and the period (beginning date or ending date) for which the transfer will be effective for each designated dependent. VA will use the information shown on DOD Form 2366-1 to determine whether the dependent qualifies to receive education benefits under the transfer of entitlement provision of law.
