Denied SGLI Claims

When a servicemember passes away, it is a tragedy that is felt not only by the family, but by all the people in the country who put their trust and hearts in the many men and women risking lives for their country.  Family members who lose a loved one go through a tremendous amount of grief and sorrow. In many cases, untimely deaths of soldiers leave their spouses and children grieving and struggling to adjust to the new way of life. Often, financial difficulties arise. This may be the most difficult time in the lives of surviving family members. The situation may get even worse if the life insurance company denies life insurance benefits on which the family relied in case the unthinkable happens.

When an SGLI claim is denied, the beneficiary may be too vulnerable to deal with the denial effectively. Whether you are a parent, a spouse, a child or a dear friend, you are probably going through an emotionally difficult time and are not ready to face a large insurance company and its attorneys. You may feel anger, frustration and confusion when the insurance company tells you your SGLI claim will not be honored. You may look for answers and fight an SGLI claim denial or you may accept an SGLI claim denial in order to find closure. Whatever the case may be, we understand your difficulty and offer our help.

Our SGLI lawyers focus their time, energy and resources on making sure SGLI beneficiaries receive the benefits to which they are entitled under the law.

There are many reasons an SGLI claim may be denied. Every case is different and the circumstances surrounding each SGLI claim denial are unique. The most common reasons for a denied SGLI claim are:

  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to ineligibility for SGLI coverage;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to an SGLI beneficiary dispute;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to an SGLI beneficiary contest;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to no beneficiary election;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to inactive duty of the insured at the time of death;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to the AWOL status of the insured at the time of death;
  • A part of an SGLI claim has been denied due to a reduction in coverage;
  • A part of an SGLI claim has been denied due to incorrect beneficiary changes;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to incorrect SGLI form submission;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to failure to convert to VGLI coverage;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to the SGLI insured’s failure to convert to a commercial policy upon release;
  • An SGLI claim has been denied due to non-payment of SGLI premiums.
