Marine Corps Life Insurance

As a member of the United States Marine Corps, you’re eligible to receive life insurance benefits through the government’s Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) program. You will be automatically enrolled in this program by your service branch at the onset of your military career. Marines also have the option to cover spouses and dependents through the Family Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (FSGLI) program. 

These guaranteed acceptance group term policies are excellent introductory options for Marines and their families, but they rarely provide enough coverage to meet all the needs of a Marine Corps family since they are one-size-fits-all. These plans do not take into account you and your family members’ individual needs and unique circumstances. Factors like age, income and health history also need to be considered when determining the type of life insurance policy you want and the amount of coverage you need.

Common Questions

Through Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI), Marine Corps servicemembers can purchase life insurance coverage in increments of $50,000 up to the $400,000 maximum. You also have the option to purchase coverage for your family through Family Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (FSGLI) which offers a term life insurance benefit of up to $100,000 for a spouse and $10,000 for dependent children. Unfortunately, FSGLI policies do not provide enough coverage to meet the needs of many Marine Corps families. 

AAFMAA offers a variety of Marine Corps life insurance policies suited to meet the needs of individuals and families through each stage of military life. Visit our Life Insurance page for more information about our policies. 

No. After leaving the military, you must actively purchase Veterans’ Group Life Insurance (VGLI). You have one year and 120 days after your transition date to apply and qualify.

You can renew your VGLI coverage every five years, and it does not expire if you make your premium payments on time. There are no age or term limits on the coverage.

When you apply within your first 240 days of transition, you are eligible for VGLI without proof of good health, even if you have sustained a traumatic injury or developed other severe health conditions. If you apply for VGLI coverage after 240 days, you must answer health questions and prove you are in good health.
