@HawkeyeNFO, I'm not familiar with the referenced "page 13" either, but I suspect it is a service specific requirement...as I understand it, each service attached their own requirements for soldiers/sailors/airmen/marines to take advantage of the transferability option. I'm an Army guy, and I signed up to transfer benefits a couple of years ago using the link I've included below and never filled out any other paperwork. I received confirmation that I was approved shortly after applying, and when I log onto the Transfer of Educational Benefits (TEB) website, I get the following message:
Message from Your Service Component:
****Note: The Approval Confirmation Form is not currently available in TEB. For confirmation of your approval, you can print the TEB screen showing "Status: Request Approved". Or you can contact your Service Representative and they can generate the Approval Confirmation Form for you.****
@gsmolin, the following website has some great information and also includes the link to the site where you sign up for the transferability option: Defense.gov - Special Report - Post 9/11 GI Bill
