State Sponsored Life Insurance (SSLI)

The State Sponsored Life Insurance (SSLI) program is derived from United States Public Law 93-289, May 1974, Title 37, Section 707 and is offered through the National Guard Association of Massachusetts (NGAMA). This program is comprised of a combination of six voluntary group life policies available to the military members of the Massachusetts National Guard and is designed to help meet the needs of our membership.

The NGAMA is a member of the Militia Insurance Trust (MIT) underwritten by MetLife. The Militia Insurance Trust is comprised of 13 National Guard Associations.

Every member of the Massachusetts National Guard is covered with $1,000 SSLI at no cost to the member. This $1,000 benefit is provided through the Militia Insurance Trust Group Life Insurance Plan.

Key Benefits of the SSLI
  • Over $1,000,000 in coverage available for the Massachusetts National Guardsman through a combination of the SSLI plans.
  • Coverage available for the spouse and children.
  • Rates do not go up just because you separate from the National Guard—you can keep the coverage when you separate.
  • Coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • No War Exclusion—you are covered in combat.
  • No Aviation Exclusion—aviators are covered.
  • New Recruits are eligible for $10,000 SSLI coverage under the MIT Group Life Insurance Plan at no cost for the first year of service in the Massachusetts National Guard. Enrollment must occur within 120 days of joining the Massachusetts National Guard.
