The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its regulations governing eligibility for Veterans' Group Life Insurance (VGLI) to extend to 240 days the current 120-day ``no-health'' period during which veterans can apply for VGLI without proving that they are in good health for insurance purposes. The purpose of this proposed rule is to increase the opportunities for disabled veterans to enroll in VGLI, some of who would not qualify for VGLI coverage under existing provisions.
