About VA insurance options and eligibility

Find out which VA insurance programs may be right for you as a Veteran, service member, spouse, or dependent child.

How do I know which life insurance program I’m eligible for?

Different programs cover Veterans (VGLI), service members (SGLI), and family members (FSGLI). You may also be able to get short-term financial coverage through TSGLI to help you recover from a traumatic (severe) injury. And if you have a service-connected disability, you may be able to get coverage through VALife.

Note: If you’re ending your military tour of duty soon, you’ll need to get new coverage quickly. In some cases, you must act within 120 days of leaving the military to be sure there’s no break in your coverage.
