BENEFITS brought to you by your National Guard Association of Colorado:

State Sponsored Life Insurance (SSLI)

  • Low cost life insurance
  • Pays an immediate benefit of $25,000 within 24-hrs of death; other insurances take weeks to pay out.
  • Benefits remain the same and low monthly costs do not change when you retire or separate from the National Guard
  • You are protected 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and on or off duty
  • No war, aviation, or terrorism clauses
  • One of only two types of insurance Congress has allowed to be deducted from your National Guard military pay (SGLI being the other)
  • Visit and contact the administrator at 800-462-7441 for more information.

Select  FREE SSLI coverage

  • NGACO has negotiated that all current active members of the Colorado Guard are automatically protected with $1,000 of SSLI for free.
  • NGAUS and EANGUS members are automatically provided $1,000 of free Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage as well.

Technician Disability Insurance

  • Because of the likelihood that you'll be disabled while a member of the Guard far exceeds the likelihood that you'll suffer death, every technician should seriously look at this product to protect themselves and their family.
  • Call 888-642-8748 for details. Forms are also available through the Human Resources office at the Colorado National Guard headquarters in Centennial.

Health Insurance

  • TRICARE health coverage is available for all members of the National Guard. This was a successful collaborative effort of all State National Guard Associations and the National Guard Association of the United States. Membership numbers helped greatly in convincing the Congress that this was the right thing to do for our Guard and their families.
