The new veterans insurance was voted by Congress because so many complained about the current program under which veterans are given only 120 days to convert their GI insurance to regular civilian insurance wilhout physical exams. The veterans said they could not afford to pay the con ventional rates for full cpv erage so soon after leaving service. All servicemen will be cli gible to convert from Service nen's Group Life Insurance to he new Veterans Group Life nsurance within 120 days after caving service. This is five year term insurance that is no renewable. At the end of the five years the veteran may convert this U an individual policy by apply iig in writing to a commercia company participating in th new program.

Gain Reported In Federal Crop Insurance WASHINGTON (API - The government has written a ·ccord $1.1 billion in federal crop insurance for 1974, a gain if 10 per cent from last year. Handled through the Federal ;rop Insurance Corporation in he Agriculture Department, he policies help protect f a r m - ers from crop losses due to natural causes. . The insurance currently is available in 1,442 counties-about half of those in the nation--in 39 states. Farmers pay yearly premiums based on local - production and crop-loss listory. Cjaims are paid from a fund built from premium payments. "This means that the premium payment of a Kansas wheat farmer who had a good crop helped pay for the crop investment lost by a Texas citrus grower whose grove was damaged by freeze." Secretary of Agriculture Earl L. Butz said Thursday. "In other years, the procedure may be reversed, with money from citrus premiums ;oing to it drought-stricken area of Kansas."
