Just wondering if it worth it is the money buying the VGLI or not. The rates seem kind of high to me. But I haven't begun to price life insurance rates lately for a 39 yo Male either. Just trying to get some feedback from someoene who knows more than me. Thank you.

If you are basically healhy you can get a better deal on life insurance from Select Quotes. Before I was TDIU I got $250,000 for a little over $700 a year for a 15 year term. I was under 50 years old. The veteran's insurance is OK as a death benefit policy just to pay final expenses.

Life insurance is an excellent investment-in my opinion-

maybe not for yourself but for your family.

Death is expensive.

Guys- many of you had VSGI and then after ten years I think- you had to convert to private insurance ???

I know it is expensive because my husband had to convert- he was never eligible for SDGLI as his 100% SC came posthumously-

Whole life plans even have a loan option in some cases-

I think my daughter- a veteran- has what you have John. VSGLI

My neighbor, 20 years retired got a conversion letter from VSGLI after he had been out for ten years.

I got him info from my insurance company to convert it.

He never converted it nor paid anymore money for it.

He thinks the $250,000 is still a valid policy. How could it be?

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
