Three Dead/ines— 'Two Are on Term Insurance and One on Terminal Leave By MAJ. THOMAS M. NIAL ,;> A ' "-**'' ' -. ' " •It you read this space last time yoy. know that it mentioned 3 approaching deadlines—2 on ^insurance, 1 on terminal leave pa'y. ' JTuly 31 is the deadline for easy reinstatement of term insurance, no -matter how long it has been in a state of lapse. Aug. 31 is the deadline for applying for terminal leave pay. We never did get to the 3rd deadline, which concerns only a few persons — and not veterans. It's July 31, too, and it marks the VETERANS' GUM «nd of the time during which certain beneficiaries of NSLI may change the method by which they receive their NSLI payments. '' Which beneficiaries? Those who. started receiving NSLI payments, on account of the death of the insured, before Sept. 30, 1944. Four Options : ;Those beneficiaries had no choice of different kinds of settlements because at that time there weren't 4 options as there are to- day. So they were given 2 years to switch from the settlement under which they started receiving the insurance to another set- tiementr—the refund life income settlement. The 2 years are up July 31. After that beneficiaries who started getting their insurance before Sept. 30, 1944, will not be able to change to a refund life income settlement. The VA says it has tried to notify every beneficiary who might be affected and thinks it has succeeded. It sent, out a letter telling each beneficiary he (or she) could change to the refund life income settlement. Guarantees Face Value " That settlement guarantees that the face value of the insurance will be paid out to some one—either to the beneficiary or, if the beneficiary dies, to the beneficiary and the 2nd beneficiary. It also guarantees that if the beneficiary lives beyond the point, at which the face value of the insurance has been paid out he will keep on receiving monthly payments for the rest of his life. (A 2nd beneficiary gets only up to lace value.) If you are one of the affected beneficiaries you should write to your veterans administration branch office to get details. There are very few beneficiaries in this class. GI BiU Education How many ex-servicers will be affected by the new ruling on avocational (or recreational) study courses under the GI bill? Congress tacked on an amendment to the VA appropriations bill which said that none of the appropriated money can be spent on GI bill education if the VA administrator determines that the course of study is avocational — not connected with" the veteran's occupation. I talked to. the manager of a large eastern VA regional office about this the other day. He said he thought a lot of veterans would be affected, especially those who want to take flight training. It's ..till too early to say just what the story will be. Undoubtedly such courses as dancing, bartending, piano lessons and learning how to fly a glider are going to be cut back drastically. The VA has to move slowly on this. It has set up some kind of standards to determine whether a course is really vocational—or just avocalional. One thing the central office of the VA has made clear to me is that no cut and dried rules will be laid down. Each request for a course of study which might be recreational will be judged on its own merits.
