Service Members Group Life Insurance-Definition of Stillborn Child for Purposes of Coverage

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-26
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend the regulation defining ``member's stillborn child'' for purposes of the Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) program.

As a result, a fetus whose duration in utero is 20 completed weeks of gestation but who weighs less than 350 grams would qualify as a ``member's stillborn child.''
