USBA was founded in 1959 to meet the needs of active duty military personnel, who at that time wanted to supplement their SGLI $10,000 benefit and had difficulty finding adequate life insurance coverage that would cover combat-related deaths. USBA was one of the first to eliminate the so-called “war clause” from all of its coverage. Right from the start, USBA took a leadership role in helping members find the best rates and coverage.

USBA is a nonprofit association owned by its members—the same people it insures. It exists purely to serve its membership with a Board of Directors made up of active and retired military officers and federal employees. The Board is member-elected. These individuals understand the unique needs and concerns of America’s service men, women, and their families. Click here for more background on the USBA board.
USBA President and CEO Colonel Robin Snyder USAF (Ret.) encourages members to share the USBA story and tell other veterans about its affordable group life insurance products. “Together, we create a ‘Power of One’ pricing advantage through our common bond of Military and Government service,” he explains. “The more members we have, the greater opportunities and advantages we can share with each other.” Learn more about USBA Insurance Plans here.
