VA Insurance, in conjunction with the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), and the uniformed branches of service, conducted a review of the TSGLI program, starting in the program’s tenth year of operation in 2015. Follow this link to view the report, which provides a summary of the findings and recommendations from this comprehensive review of the program.
Public Law 115-332, effective, August 13, 2018 provides that Servicemembers deployed to a combat theater of operations are automatically insured for the maximum amount of coverage under the SGLI program while deployed. Coverage is returned to the previously elected amount after the deployment ends. Follow this link to Chapter 4 of the SGLI/VGLI Handbook to obtain more information on the impacts of this law change.
