2. It has been less than 2 years since VA notified you of a new service-connected disability or you are currently waiting for a
rating for your service-connected disability. Please Note: The disability you are rated for must be a new disability, not an
increase in a disability you already have. An increase to 100% or being granted individual unemployability does not automatically
entitle you to a new eligibility period.
Speeding Up the Application Process:
We can process your application more quickly if you send us a copy of the letter from VA that first notified that your disability was
rated service-connected within the last two years. You may also apply online by visiting our website at "www.insurance.va.gov"
and clicking "Apply for Service-Disabled Veterans Insurance Online".

3. You are in good health except for your service-connected disability. We will evaluate all health conditions that are not service-

Before you apply for S-DVI coverage, we encourage you to compare our premium rates to commercial insurance companies. If
your disability is not serious, you may be able to find better rates from a commercial company.
When considering the cost of S-DVI coverage, remember that if you are or become totally disabled and unable to work for six
or more months you do not have to pay premiums on your Government Life Insurance policy. Most commercial life insurance
companies add an additional charge for this benefit.
