As a Reservist/National Guard member, is my SGLI coverage in force 365 days a year, regardless if I am performing duty on the day of my demise? Or will it only pay if I am killed performing military duty?

If you are a Reservist or National Guard member and have been assigned to a unit in which you are scheduled to perform at least 12 periods of inactive duty that is creditable for retirement purposes, full-time SGLI coverage is in effect 365 days of the year. You are also covered for 120 days following separation or release from duty.
