Veterans' Group Life Insurance (VGLI)
All servicemembers on active duty have access to life insurance benefits through Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI). Upon transitioning out of the military, Veterans can purchase Veterans’ Group Life Insurance (VGLI). Both are group term life insurance programs for current and former servicemembers and their dependents, respectively.
