Group Term Life Insurance
Many VFW members under age 50 have life coverage through work. While that’s a good start, for many it’s just the beginning of the cash benefits their loved ones may need if something happened to them.
- Would it be enough to pay off student loans? Credit card bills? Car loans? You don’t want your parents or other loved ones worrying about those expenses if something happened to you.
- What if you just bought a house? Or used a home equity loan to pay for a major remodel or upgrade? Think about how those bills would be paid if you weren’t there anymore.
- How would your family make ends meet without your paycheck? For so many families … especially as you’re building your career … everything from a money perspective is built on the assumption that your paycheck will keep coming. But what if it doesn’t?
They’re real concerns. Especially when you consider that 25% of families fear they would no longer be able to make ends meet within just one month of a breadwinner passing away. *
Of course, money could never replace you. But this $50,000 member benefit could become the additional money your loved ones need to confidently face the future without you.
That’s why VFW set up the $50,000 Guaranteed Acceptance Term Life Insurance Plan. It takes less than 5 minutes to set up this member benefit coverage – to be paid when your family may need it most.
During the first two years, fatal accidents are covered at $50,000. If death is due to another cause in year one, your loved ones receive 125% of premiums paid. In year two, 250% of premium is paid for death due to another cause. Starting in year three, all benefits are payable at $50,000.

As long as you enroll in member coverage, your spouse is entitled to $50,000 on a guaranteed acceptance basis – just like you.
- Group rates keep costs economical. As you’re building your career, it’s important to make sure your coverage keeps up with changes in your life. But keeping the price of that coverage in line with your budget is crucial, too. That's why this coverage is offered with economical group rates.
