The Uniformed Services Benefit Association (USBA) is a nationally recognized non-profit organization with the mission of serving military families. We provide our members with quality veterans group life insurance products, affordable rates and coverage you can keep after SGLI runs out.
In addition to serving veterans of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard, we also provide veterans insurance benefits for National Guard and Reserve members, as well as federal employees.
USBA was founded in 1959 to meet the needs of active duty military who were having difficulty finding adequate life insurance. They needed insurance protection that covered combat-related deaths. USBA was one of the first veterans life insurance providers to do away with the exclusionary “war clause” in all its group insurance underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company. (Note: A war clause excludes payment of claims due to acts of war such as invasion, insurrection, revolution, military coup, even terrorism.)
USBA employees include veterans and retired military members from many of the armed services, as well as non-military insurance professionals. Together, we’ve safeguarded military families through 12 presidents, 3 wars, and repeated ups and downs in the U.S. economy.
If you’re transitioning or retiring from the military in 2018, now’s a good time to learn about USBA’s group life insurance for military families. Your SGLI will run out 120 days after you leave military service.
