VA life insurance options provide peace of mind for Veterans and their families. Through VA’s seven life insurance programs, many Veterans will qualify for coverage; VA provides over $1.3 trillion in insurance coverage each year.
On May 19, VA partnered with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) to answer questions on Facebook about life insurance options for Veterans. The chat addressed questions about eligibility for life insurance, application deadlines, disability coverage including traumatic injury protection, and much more.
Check out some of the questions and answers from the chat below.
