Every active member of the VFW receives the Accidental Death and Dismemberment Policy. This means every annual member in good standing has the policy. Life members have the comfort of knowing the policy will always be in effect for them.
This group insurance policy pays a benefit of $1,000 when a member’s death is due to an accident. This policy also will pay a benefit amount for an accident that results in dismemberment. If the member is a paid passenger going to or from a VFW event the policy will pay an additional $1,500.
Please advise your members that the benefit amount pays 50% of the original benefit at age 70 and decreases another 50% at 75. To file a claim, please call 1-800-626-0027. If you have additional question, you may send an e-mail to Denise Edelman at firstname.lastname@example.org
