National Guard

State Sponsored Life Insurance

Protection for our nation. Confidence for your family.

State Sponsored Life Insurance - SSLI - provides valuable group life insurance with special protections for National Guard members. All policies offer optional spouse and child coverage. Policies are portable, so you can keep your protection after leaving active service and still pay group premiums. And, unlike many civilian policies, there are no exclusions for service or war-related death.

Choose a policy with the amount and length of protection you need.

New York Life Insurance Company (NYL), Military Benefit Association (MBA), and Uniformed Services Benefit Association (USBA) are dedicated to serving the needs of those who serve America.
