Did you know injuries or medical conditions from service can make it difficult or even impossible for you to obtain private life insurance?

VA offers life insurance programs that do not look at service-connected disabilities, or in some cases any disabilities, depending on the program and when you apply. But there are limited eligibility windows. Don’t miss your chance to enroll!

Learn about these critical application deadlines during the Facebook Live event on August 16 at 1 p.m. EDT. Join representatives from VA and Blue Star Families as they discuss eligibility requirements as well as how and when to apply.

Discover resources and have your questions answered in the comments section following the video. 

This event is part of the “#ExploreVA: From Service to Success” online series highlighting how Veterans and their families use VA benefits and services. These benefits help Veterans earn degrees, start careers, buy homes, stay healthy and more. Visit Explore.VA.gov for information on events, resources and how to apply for VA benefits.

    I am a Vet…1956-1962 USAF, SAC. Can I get Life Insurance at age 82 ? If so what is the monthly fee and amount of policy?

    I get plenty of ads about life insurance only to be declined for health reasons. So when i called to confirm the fact that i can buy insurance without medical questions, once again, i was told that was not so.

    I’d like more information about applying for V.A. life insurance. My phone number is 781-985-4704. Only serious and pertinent information is needed. No sales or other unwanted ads are warranted. Thanks
