Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) is a program of low cost group life insurance for servicemembers on active duty, ready reservists, members of the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Public Health Service, cadets and midshipmen of the four service academies, and members of the Reserve Officer Training Corps.
SGLI is available in $10,000 increments up to the maximum of $400,000. SGLI insureds have two options available to them upon release from service. They can convert their full-time SGLI coverage to term insurance under the Veterans' Group Life Insurance program or to a permanent plan of insurance with one of the participating commercial insurance companies.
