Life Insurance Consideration for Military Servicemembers
An important note to members of the armed forces involves a provision that is commonly included in life insurance policies. If you have opted out or decided to purchase additional life insurance outside of the SGLI/VGLI military offered life insurance plans, you should review the list of exclusions to the policies. Many life insurance policies include a “war exclusion” provision that specifically states benefits will not be payable if the death is a result of war or the action of a military force. The Servicemember’s Group Life Insurance (SGLI) and Veterans Group Life Insurance (VGLI) policies do not have this type of exclusion. In addition, many life insurance policies also contain exclusions about traveling on any non-commercial aircraft.
