Veterans Group Life Insurance – Protect your family

It’s important to remember that you can qualify for VGLI insurance without answering health questions if you convert your SGLI to VGLI within 240 days of separation or of being placed on Individual Ready Reserve. I highly recommend that you protect your family in those first 240 days so that you don’t have to worry, like I did, about whether you will qualify for insurance.
