What Are The Eligibility Requirements For Payment Under TSGLI?

To be eligible for payment of TSGLI, you must meet all of the following requirements:

  • If injured on or after December 1, 2005, you must be insured by SGLI when you experience a traumatic injury. For those injured between October 7, 2001 and November 30, 2005, SGLI coverage is not required to be eligible for TSGLI.
  • You must incur one of the TSGLI losses described in VA Regulations and that loss must be a direct result of a traumatic injury.
  • You must have suffered the traumatic injury prior to midnight of the day that you separate from the uniformed services.
  • You must suffered the scheduled loss within 2 years (730 days) of the traumatic injury.
You must survive for a period of not less than seven full days from the date of the traumatic injury. (The 7-day period begins on the date and time of the traumatic injury, as measured by Zulu [Greenwich Meridian] time and ends 168 full hours later).
