Injuries or medical conditions from service may make it difficult or even impossible for Veterans to obtain private life insurance. But VA offers life insurance programs that do not look at service-connected disabilities (and in some cases any disabilities) during the eligibility process. These include: (1) Veterans' Group Life Insurance (VGLI), (2) Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance Disability Extension (SGLI-DE), (3) Service-Disabled Veterans' Insurance (S-DVI), and (4) Veterans' Mortgage Life Insurance (VMLI). VA life insurance programs require Veterans to apply for the coverage — it is not automatic. Visit Explore.VA.gov to learn about VA benefits and how to apply.
