Life insurance member benefits

For more than 75 years, the Armed Forces Benefit Association (AFBA) has remained steadfast in our mission to protect all who go in harm’s way for this great nation, with life insurance member benefits that provide the certainty they need and the peace of mind they deserve.

Life beyond the benefit

We deliver support that goes beyond life, with member benefits that include a college scholarship for the spouse and children of members who die in the line of duty or at the scene of an incident. AFBA members also have access to other member benefits catered to the unique needs of service life. Learn more below.

Emergency death benefit

Once coverage is in place for two years, a portion of the total death benefit can be released as an Emergency Death Benefit. This allows families to pay for things such as the funeral and other unexpected expenses that may arise from the death of a loved one.
