GI Bill Programs Branch (PERS-311)


Welcome to the GI Bill Programs Branch Web Site.  

This office is located at the Navy Personnel Command, Naval Support Activity Mid-South in Millington, Tennessee.  PERS-311 centrally manages all of GI Bill Programs for the Navy.  We maintain liaison with the Department of Veterans Affairs in regard to any policy or legislative action affecting educational benefits.  We also are responsible for  policy on GI Bill Programs and providing information to Navy active duty and veteran personnel in regard to their educational entitlements.


***NEW*** UPDATED 1/25/19*** 

Effective immediately and retroactive to 12 July 2018, the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense has authorized an Exception to Policy (ETP) for members who have served 10 years and are no longer retainable for four additional years due to statute or policy, i.e. HYT, statutory limit, or medical separations.  These members MUST be willing and able to serve the maximum amount of time allowed by such statute or policy.  NAVADMIN 020/19 explains the guidelines. 


***Important changes IRT Transfer of Education Benefits of the Post-9/11 GI Bill below: 

****The policy changes do NOT affect members who already have an approved TEB request**** 

Effective 10/1/18, ALL members (officers AND enlisted) must complete a statement of understanding (SOU) in the My Education website BEFORE submitting a TEB request.  The SOU replaces the Page 13 formerly required for Officers and SELRES members.  Enlisted members are still required to have the correct amount of obligated service on an enlistment contract in order to be eligible for transferability. Refer to NAVADMIN 236/18 for guidance:  click here
