AFBA was established in 1947 with the support of the General of the Army, Dwight D. Eisenhower, to ease the strain on military members and their families during wartime. At that time, service members could not purchase life insurance that would pay a death benefit if the member was killed in a war zone.
True Blue Review:
5 star is a financially stable insurance company with a focus on life insurance to worksite/group markets.
Named after the highest ranking five-star generals, the company has its origins in the Armed Forces Benefit Association (AFBA). The company was established by General Dwight D. Eisenhower to help military families purchase insurance that covered them if killed in a war zone.
5 star offers group term insurance products that cover you up to age 100. The policies benefit amount may lower the longer you have the plan, though the cost is guaranteed to stay the same.
Part of the cost of the policy is a membership to The Health Depot Association, and some other benefits come with being a member.
The application is seven questions, and the requirements are:
you don't require full-time medical care
are physically able to work
have not been declined by another life insurance company
Policies are issued through the association, and there is an administrator. All service and support are handled by the plan administrator, not 5 star life insurance company customer service.
Group policies are for those who are unable to qualify for insurance elsewhere. It is a fantastic deal and we are fortunate to have this product to offer our customers.
