Active duty and Reserve
Component members who are hospitalized for 15 or more consecutive days
due to an injury incurred on or after Oct. 7, 2001, may be eligible for
a $25,000 payment from the Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance
Traumatic Injury Protection (TSGLI) Program. Those covered by SGLI as of
December 1, 2005, are automatically covered by TSGLI, which covers on-

hospitalization benefit even if they have been discharged or received
TSGLI benefits for other losses.
