Will The Service Member Ever Have To File More Than One Claim?

Yes. In some certain circumstances, the serviceman must file for more than just one claim. In case of losses like traumatic brain injury or coma, the benefit of TSGLI will be paid in increments of $25,000 on 90th, 60th, 30th and 15th consecutive days of the inability of the serviceman to perform activities of daily living. A different claim for benefits of TSGLI must be filed at the time of each interval. For instance, in case a serviceman goes through a traumatic injury that causes him to suffer a coma, a TSGLI claim must be filed after the 15th consecutive day for which the serviceman would receive $25,000. In case the serviceman stays in coma for another 30 days, a claim for another $25,000 must be filed separately. In case a claim is filed by a serviceman for an incurred loss and then another loss is subsequently incurred resulting from the same event of trauma, there must be a filing of a new claim for the subsequent loss. For instance, in case a serviceman claims money for losing a leg resulting from an explosion and after 4 months, he loses another leg resulting from the same explosion, another claim must be filed by the serviceman.
