FAMILY SERVICEMEMBERS’ GROUP LIFE INSURANCE (FSGLI)
FSGLI provides a maximum of $100,000 of life insurance coverage for spouses, not to exceed the amount of SGLI
coverage the Sailor has in force and $10,000 for dependent children. Spouse coverage is available in $10,000
increments. The Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) is the data source for determining
enrollment for FSGLI coverage. The Under Secretary of Defense directed service members to report any changes
in dependency status; such as a marriage or the birth of a child within 60 days of the event. This is in addition to
the sponsor’s responsibility to report all dependents regardless of their eligibility for enrollment in other benefit
programs (i.e. military spouses) such as FSGLI. Military members married to military members must report all
dependents immediately, including their spouses who are sponsors in DEERS to avoid indebtedness for delinquent
FSGLI premiums. Spouse premiums are calculated based on their age at the time co coverage is established.

SPECIAL DUTY SCREENING
Special Duty programs require various screenings, yet occasionally Sailors are being transferred from their
command without the necessary screenings for these programs.
To request assignment to a special program, contact your rating detailer for release to a special program
assignment or submit NAVPERS 1306/7 (Enlisted Personnel Action Request) to your detailer at Navy Personnel
Command approximately 9-11 months prior to your projected rotation date (PRD).
It is the responsibility of the Commanding Officer, the Command Master Chief; Chief of the Boat, or Senior Enlisted
Advisor as well as other key personnel to ensure all applicants are fully endorsed/qualified for the specific program.
For more information on Special Duty Screening, see MILPERSMAN 1306-900.
