TSGLI Benefit for Hospitalized Troops and Veterans

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- and off-duty injuries. Active duty members can apply for the hospitalization benefit even if they have been discharged or received TSGLI benefits for other losses.
