Site enables veterans to access insurance account info

The Veterans Affairs Department said that veterans may now access their Veterans' Group Life Insurance accounts online to manage and view policy information.

Using a secure Web site, the VGLI Online Account Access system is available at www.insurance.va.gov.

'We will be adding new features to both our online account and interactive voice response systems on a continuing basis so veterans can manage their policies from anywhere, at any time,' VA Under Secretary for Benefits Daniel Cooper said in a statement.

Veterans can view their current amount of coverage, premium rate and billing method, as well as change their billing address.

Future features will enable them to change their method and frequency of payment. A life insurance calculator to determine a recommended amount of insurance is also available on VA's insurance Web site.
