LegionCare program now improved!
The Legionnaire Insurance Trust (LIT) is pleased to announce some important
changes to the LegionCare program.
The first of these exciting updates – starting for enrollments after 1/1/2015,
anyone enrolled in LegionCare will be covered for as long as they remain a
member of The Legion Family. No need to re-enroll every 5 years!
The second change, and what we think is the most important - All “Legion Family”
members – Legion, senior ALA, and senior SAL – in good standing are now eligible
for the coverage. The Legionnaire Insurance Trust has been working hard to
provide valuable benefits to your entire family and we look forward to
continuing to serve veterans’ insurance needs.
Every eligible “Legion Family” member may enroll, but the member
must sign-up to be covered. Please spread the word about these exciting
changes to LegionCare.
