Slayer's Rule Exclusion - Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance And Veterans' Group Life Insurance


carlie

Question

Gosh,

I sure don't understand why this proposed rule is needed.

It seems like payment would be precluded by law, to begin with.

http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=VA-2011-VACO-0027-0001

AN40 - Proposed Rule - Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance and Veterans' Group Life Insurance; Slayer's Rule Exclusion

"SUMMARY:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (``VA'') proposes to amend

its regulations governing Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance

(``SGLI'') and Veterans' Group Life Insurance (``VGLI'') to prohibit

payment of insurance proceeds payable because of the death of a person

whose life was insured under SGLI or VGLI (``decedent'') or payment of

a SGLI Traumatic Injury Protection (``TSGLI'') benefit to a person who

is convicted of intentionally killing the decedent or determined in a

civil proceeding to have intentionally killed the decedent

(``slayer''); a member of the slayer's family who is not related to the

decedent by blood, legal adoption, or marriage; and a member of the

slayer's family who is related to the decedent by blood, legal

adoption, or marriage and who is convicted of a crime involving the

intentional killing of the decedent or found in a civil proceeding to

have been involved in the intentional killing of the decedent.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

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

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
