As the nation celebrates the Month of the Military Child, it is a good time to remind military families of the benefits they may be missing out on. Dependents and surviving children of Veterans and service members may quality for certain benefits, such as life insurance, education services and health care. Dependent children may qualify for Family Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (FSGLI) coverage if the service member is on active duty and covered by full-time Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (SGLI), or is a member of the National Guard or Ready Reserve and covered by full-time SGLI. There is no cost for coverage up to $10,000 for each dependent child. Beneficiaries of a Veteran’s or service member’s policy can also receive free financial planning and online will preparation services.
