SGLI How Do You Obtain or Increase SGLI Coverage
If you declined or reduced your SGLI coverage and later want to obtain or increase the coverage, you must complete and sign a form SGLV -8286, Request for Insurance, in the presence of an authorized representative of your uniformed service. You must answer all medical questions*. The representative will certify and file the application in your personnel file. Your coverage will become effective immediately, providing a review of your medical conditions is not required by OSGLI. Monthly premiums will be deducted from your pay.
* In some circumstances your application may have to be sent to the Office of Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (OSGLI) for medical review.
