These days, it's important to save money where you can, and your life insurance costs are no exception. Luckily for Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) members, rates for Military Officers Association of America (MOAA's) traditional Leader Term Life Plan consistently rank among the lowest on the market for military groups. You can save even more money if you're currently relying on VGLI for your family's coverage. That's because VGLI protection can cost more than twice as much as Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader Life coverage.*
Your status as an Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) member combined with the immense buying power of more than 380,000 uniformed services officers helped Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) secure valuable benefits for you and your family. These high-caliber benefits are automatically included in your Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader Plan.
- You are protected 24 hours a day, 365 days a year even if you're flying in a military aircraft.
- Your loved ones can immediately collect $2,500 to use as they see fit to pay for plane tickets for family members, make phone calls to relatives, or to help tie up loose ends. This valuable "advance benefit" will be sent to your family upon request after notification of your death as long as your protection has been in force at least two years. Your remaining benefits will be paid as soon as the rest of the paperwork is accepted.
- If you are a Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) member leaving active duty, you're guaranteed acceptance for up to $50,000 of Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader protection if you're under age 50 and enroll within 60 days after the date of your discharge. If you are age 50 or over, you are guaranteed acceptance for up to $25,000 of protection if you're enrolling within 60 days after the date of your discharge. (Of course, you also have the right to apply for additional Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader protection.) No matter what your age, all we ask is that your discharge not be health or disability-related.
- Your family can take advantage of the savings, too. As a matter of fact, many officers take advantage of their Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) membership to secure the affordable group rates for protection of their spouse's life.
- Your premium payments will be waived if a Sickness or Injury leads to a Total Disability that keeps you from working at your current job. This is as long as your disability starts before age 60 while you are covered under the policy and you stay Totally Disabled for at least six consecutive months. Your full Leader benefits continue at 100% and you owe nothing.
- You can collect up to 50% of your Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader benefits before you die if your doctor certifies that you are Terminally Ill and have fewer than twelve months to live. Receipt of accelerated benefits may be taxable. Please seek assistance from your personal tax advisor for more information.

You can keep your Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader coverage for as long as you want no matter what your health as long as you remain an Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) member, pay your premiums on time and the Master Policy stays in force. Your spouse can keep his or her coverage for as long as their premiums are paid on time, their coverage has not expired, the group policy stays in force and they are not legally separated or divorced from you. Your children’s coverage will terminate once they no longer qualify as an eligible Dependent.
The only exclusion to the policy is suicide within the first two years of coverage. Benefits paid for death caused by suicide, while sane or insane, within the first two years of the effective date of the insurance are limited to a refund of the premiums paid for the insured's insurance.
The Leader Plan can also help protect you if you have health problems. As an Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) member under age 60, you can qualify for the $10,000 Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Leader Silver Plan as long as you have been working for the past 90 days. This coverage features many of the same benefits found in the standard Leader Plan with important protection that increases from $2,000 to $10,000 over five years.
