For 70 years, AFBA has stood by our country’s armed forces. AFBA provides life insurance in both war and peace to those who serve this great nation including our military, emergency first responders, government employees, and their families.
AFBA was created as a nonprofit organization in 1947 with the support of General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower “to promote the general welfare and economic interests of its members and their families by providing superior benefits and services principally to military families during peace and war.” At that time, servicemembers could not purchase life insurance that would pay a death benefit if the member was killed in a war zone.
What makes AFBA unique is that the insurance coverage offered to its members continues to have no combat or terrorism exclusions. AFBA also offers other financial benefits and services to its members.
