VGLI Rates – Can Veterans Get a Better Deal?

VGLI Premium Rates VS Alternatives

The good news is that service members who are shopping for life insurance after retirement or separation can often find a better price than the VGLI insurance rates. Even if they have a medical condition. While private life insurance companies all have similar requirements for common health issues, there are some that provide more favorable rates than others. Working with an independent life insurance professional who has several companies to offer can save a veteran time and money. They will be able to assess which company has the best chance of approval and best price point. 

Shopping to see if a veteran can beat the VGLI rates is a worth while cause! It can save them a lot of money in the long run.

Is VGLI a Good Deal?

The Veterans Group Life Insurance program can end up being a good deal for a veteran who has an uninsurable or highly rate-able health condition. That is why it is important for service members who are transitioning to look at their life insurance needs within the suggested time frames. If they put it off they can end up paying for it big time. Service members who are healthy should not consider this plan and find one on the private market to avoid overpaying for coverage. Service members who aren't sure if their mental or physical health issues are uninsurable should check with an experienced professional for guidance.
