    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Va Life Insurance Sdvi


The SVR show tonight was a good one.

If you have a new service connected disability you can apply for SDVI.

If you are totally disabled, then you can also apply for a waiver of premium. The base policy is 10K.

You can also apply for the supplamental insurance of 20K ( Current) that will increase to 30K in Oct 11.

That is 40 K for not much money.

You should listen to this show archive. It was a good one.

I came across my documents for this insurance, and noticed I needed to make an update. I called the 800-number at the bottom of the form (800-669-8477) and was told that if you are:

1. 80% - 100% and either



b. P&T


c. were 80 - 100% and filed for the waiver anyway,

The monthly premium could be waived. IF the waiver was granted, then you could go from the 10K to the 30K (added 20K to the 10K). I didn't know that you could apply for the waiver of premium regardless of being P&T. I'm getting new forms in the mail, and will post the results.

VA will waive premiums if you become totally disabled from any condition before your 65th birthday and remain totally disabled for 6 or more consecutive months. The percentage of your disability does not determine if the VA will approve your application. You do not have to be P & T. You do have to notify the VA if you return to work. You are entitled to waiver of premiums as long as you remain totally disabled for insurance purposes.

I sure hate it but somehow I missed the insurance when I was awarded p&t at the age of 60. I am now 71 and it would sure help my spouse if I passed away prior to her. Red

It must be my brain on meds, but I just can't find my way to the SVR archives.

Could someone post a link? I'd really like to listen to the one about the insurance.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
