TSGLI - Traumatic Injury Protection Program
Every service member with SGLI coverage also has TSGLI protection. SGLI and TSGLI are available to all regular members, reserve members, and cadets. The coverage is 24/7, on or off duty.
An example of a traumatic event resulting in traumatic injury would be a member, while on or off duty, being struck by a motor vehicle while walking, resulting in multiple fractures, and traumatic brain injury. TSGLI does not cover illnesses.
Depending on the traumatic injury, TSGLI may pay $25K, $50K, $75K or $100K. The amount of the benefit payment depends on the consequences of the injury. See details in the TSGLI Schedule of Losses.
TSGLI coverage costs $1 per month and is automatically added to the SGLI premium deduction shown on the LES. If you completely declined SGLI then you do not have TSGLI.
TSGLI began 1 Dec 2005. There is a retroactive feature that reaches back to 7 Oct 2001.
To make a TSGLI claim, the member (or appointed guardians or designated representative) will complete the Application for TSGLI Benefits (SGLV-8600). The form has two parts; the member completes Part A and a medical professional completes Part B - this certifies the traumatic injury and loss.
For questions, please contact: TSGLI Program Manager (202)795-6638
