IAW BUPERSINST 1001.39 Series, Administrative Procedures for Naval Reservist: Chapter 15 - Group Life Insurance, upon transferring to a VTU status, Sailors transferred to a VTU status should complete NAVPERS 1070/613 (Page 13 entry) to acknowledge status change and subsequent affects of SGLI coverage.  A sample Page 13 is shown in Chapter 15 (figure 15-1) of the instruction.  For SGLI coverage to remain in effect, premiums must be mailed, quarterly, to the following address:

  Defense Finance and Accounting Service
  8899 E 56th Street
  Indianapolis, IN 46249-1200


A service member's SGLI coverage may subsequently be continued if, and only if, within 60 days of the date notified of pending SGLI termination, the member:

    a.  makes payment in full for all premiums past due; and

    b. justifies, to the satisfaction of the Secretary concerned, the failure to remit premiums in a timely manner.  Absent acceptance of this justification by the Service Secretary concerned, the member's SGLI coverage is terminated with reinstatement only as approved by the Secretary of Department of Veterans Affairs.  Each Service must establish procedures to review justifications of late payments, judging each case on its own merit.  In general, a late payment may be justified only when circumstances beyond the member's control prevented timely payment.  Lack of available funds, lack of awareness of the requirement to make timely payment, and not having kept the Service informed of a current mailing address are not acceptable reasons in and of themselves."

Initial letters to explain justifiable failure to make timely remittance for SGLI premiums should be sent to DFAS-CL.  DFAS-CL will begin the review process and will submit the letter through the appropriate channels.  The letter will eventually end up at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense and will then be forwarded to the Secretary of the Department of Veteran's Affairs for final determination.

Letters should be sent to:

 Defense Finance and Accounting Service 
 U.S. Military Retired Pay
 8899 E 56th Street
 Indianapolis, IN  46249-1200
