Insurance Money Available for Veterans with Traumatic Injuries

In a letter to Sgt. Shaft at Military.com, we learn of the VA's "new program for service members sustaining traumatic injuries, Traumatic Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (TSGLI). [It] will help families focus on recovery, readjust to military or civilian life and ease worries about financial difficulties. The TSGLI benefit payments, ranging from $25,000 to $100,000, are made to service members who have suffered certain traumatic injuries while on active duty. The program became effective Dec. 1...[and b]enefits are also payable retroactively to Oct. 7, 2001, for service members and veterans who served in OEF and OIF."
