Insurance Question


Berta

Question

Frank is having a problem with life insurance he paid for-

SGLI?

When I met Rod he was paying for SGLI -I think it was called and he had a little coupon book to send with the monthly payments-I think my daughter pays this too-

and then after what was about 20 years after service he was sent information that he would have to convert to private insurer for life insurance and he did.

He was only 30 % disabled at that time and the VA had no SC life insurance program.

It seemed at the time this was normal SOP-and he expected that he would have to convert-

Has anyone else gone through this?

A friend of mine -20 years USAF- paid a similiar type policy every month but after his technical ten year reserve status was up he got a conversion notice too- and I tied him up with the same insurance man Rod used for continuing the life insurance but through a private company.

I found out recently that he thinks his son will get 200,000 when he dies ??? NSC vet retired.

(He served 1972-1992) and yet he has never paid any additional policy and cant remember if he ever did call my insurance man and actually convert it-( he would be paying a monthly premium if he did)but he still is of the belief that there is 200,000 from the gov for his son if he dies?????

Question -has anyone else been asked to convert this type of insurance they got as veterans-

wasn't there an insurance scam some time ago over policies that vets thought had a dividend payment they never got?

Life insurance with a dividend payment costs a heck of a lot more then regular life or term life-I know that personally-it is called whole life insurance and has many benefits but is very costly.

I dont think SGHLI provides whole life policies-

any thoughts or advice?

Here is the info on the SGLI insurance scam:

I sure hope this is not what happened to Frank.

Berta, as I recall SGLI is active duty insurance with premiums payed by gov. After service it can be converted to VGLI with premiums payed by the insured.

If the son is still active there will be a payout to the beneficiaries. If he is out and not making premiums no insurance.

I retired 24 years ago so I'm basing what I said on memory. I'm pretty sure it is correct.

  • question-001.jpeg

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to 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.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
