I filed a TSGLI claim and was paid $25,000. With the program changes, I believe I may now be entitled to more money? Do I have to re-file my claim?

Your branch of service TSGLI office is reviewing 100 percent of all approved claims where the Servicemember was paid less than the maximum TSGLI benefit of $100,000 to determine if there may now be eligibility for an additional TSGLI benefit based on the program changes and additions.

However, to be sure that your claim is being reviewed, you should contact your Branch of Service TSGLI office.

If the information that you provided with your original claim documents your eligibility for a higher benefit based on the program changes and additions, your branch of service TSGLI office will authorize payment of an additional benefit without the need for you to re-file a claim. If the information that you provided with your original claim does not document your eligibility for a higher benefit based on the program changes and additions, your branch of service TSGLI office will contact you for additional information to supplement your original claim. You can also contact your branch of service TSGLI office to determine what additional information is needed.

In either situation, if your branch of service determines you are eligible for a benefit, they will contact you to confirm your current address and banking information.
