Traumatic Injury coverage changed..retro to Nov 2001, regardless of where the injury occurredDate: Jun 5, 2011 7:32 AM

ALL service members, Can now receive the same traumatic injury benefits as those who served in OEF and OIF. Such injuries did not have to occur while on active duty or active duty for training.


Every member who has SGLI also has TSGLI effective December 1, 2005. This coverage applies to active duty members, reservists, National Guard members, funeral honors duty and one-day muster duty.

This benefit is also provided retroactively for members who incurred severe losses as a result of traumatic injuries incurred between October 7, 2001 and November 30, 2005, regardless of where the injury occurred, and regardless of whether they had SGLI coverage.

I am one of those who qualify for this payment. I submitted my request last year but was declined because of where I was injured. When the bill passed I called the rep at the Navy base and he said my package was setting on his desk waiting for that date.
