SSLI (STATE SPONSORED LIFE INSURANCE)
The State Sponsored Life Insurance (SSLI) program provides group term life insurance exclusively for actively serving members of the Army and Air National Guard organizations and their dependents. The program is derived from United States Public Law 93-289, May 24, 1974, to encourage persons to join and remain in the National Guard.
Armed Forces Benefit Association (AFBA) is the main provider for Basic and Enhanced SSLI coverage through 5Star Life Insurance Company. AFBA was established in 1947 with the support of the Chief of Staff and General of the Army, Dwight D. Eisenhower, to promote the general welfare and economic interest of uniformed military service members and their families during peace and war.
As the proud provider of one of the most comprehensive SSLI programs in the country, AFBA has more than 230,000 National Guard members, retirees, and family members with $15 billion of insurance in force and has paid out more than $100 million in claims. We provide high value life insurance protection with no military specialty or combat or war exclusions to our National Guard members and their families.
HOME, AUTO, AND RENTERS INSURANCE
Thanks to a new agreement, the National Guard Association of Michigan (NGAM) and Farmers Insurance ®, one of the country’s largest insurer groups for vehicles and homes, will offer members an insurance portfolio of auto, home, renters, and motorsports insurance products. Your special savings could start with a military discount on your auto and home insurance.
The relationship with Farmers® not only provides some of the best insurance at a great rate, but it also supports various programs, events, and services of NGAM, such as its legislative efforts, state conferences, membership outreach, and the Veterans Support Grant. Combined, both are working to try and provide the best benefits possible for our entire NGAM community.
