If you are in the Navy…
You no longer need to use the SGLV 8286A to make Family SGLI elections! You can now manage your Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (SGLI) coverage using the SGLI Online Enrollment System (SOES). SOES allows Servicemembers with full-time SGLI coverage to make fast and easy changes to their life insurance coverage and beneficiary information at any time without completing a paper form or making a trip to their personnel office. To access SOES, sign into www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/ and go to the Benefits Tab, Life Insurance SOES- SGLI Online Enrollment System.
If you are in any other uniformed service…
Use the SGLV 8286 to make SGLI coverage and beneficiary changes until your branch of service tells you to begin using SOES. Follow this link to find out when your service is scheduled to begin using SOES.
