This VA Final Rulemaking, that was effective October 7, 2020, extends by 90 days the deadlines for former members insured under Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (SGLI) to apply for Veterans’ Group Life Insurance (VGLI) coverage following separation from service in order to address the inability of former members directly or indirectly affected by the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID–19) public health emergency to purchase VGLI. The final rule is in effect for one year from June 11, 2020, the date that the interim final rule was published in the Federal Register. [Until June 11, 2021].
