  2. Once your transfer request is approved, your request data is sent to the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) Note: It takes about 10-12 weeks for the Regional Processing Office to handle claims for education benefits; therefore, the earlier you apply for benefits, the earlier you may receive your Certificate of Eligibility.
