    Is the purchase of a life insurance policy available online as well or is it just the billing preferences which have changed? And is it possible to make alterations to the policy online, such as changes in address, beneficiary, etc.

    Mr. Balmer, my name is Kristan Hoffman and I am an Insurance Specialist at the VA Insurance Center. Thank you for responding to the post about VGLI Insurance. Based on the information you provided in your post, I was able to look up your records. When you separated, Service members could apply for VGLI within 1 year and 120 days after separation, if they had SGLI coverage in force. However, they could only retain their VGLI for five years after separation. Today, Veterans can maintain their VGLI as long as they desire. In your case, VA records do not show that you applied for VGLI after separation, and even if you had done so, your coverage would only have been able to be in effect for five years from separation.

    VA also offers insurance through the Service-Disabled Veterans Insurance Program. To obtain S-DVI, you must meet the following criteria:
    • VA granted service connection for any disability (even if evaluated at zero percent), AND
    • You applied within two years from the date VA notified you of that new service-connected disability, AND
    • You are in good health, except for any service-connected conditions.
    An increase in an existing service-connected disability or the granting of individual unemployability of a previous rated condition does not entitle a Veteran to S-DVI. Again, unfortunately VA records show that your last new rating was received more than two years ago. However, if you receive a rating for a new service-connected condition, you would be eligible to apply for this coverage.
