When does coverage begin?

Coverage for $400,000 automatically begins when you start your active-duty or active-duty training unless you state otherwise. Partial coverage also begins at the time of active duty for those who are performing duty for less than 31 days. If you opted out of coverage but later changed your mind and applied for SGLI then it will be effective from the time your branch of service receives your application.
