U.S. government group term life insurance for male and female members of the federal uniformed forces on active duty, underwritten by private insurance companies. Premiums reflect peacetime mortality rates for this group, with any additional costs of military risks (such as wartime exposure) being borne by the federal government. Upon discharge, SGLI policies can be converted either to five-year nonrenewable term veterans group life insurance (VGLI) or to a permanent policy at the veteran's attained age (at higher cost) with one of the commercial insurance companies participating in the serviceman's plan.
