Redraft Amendment 1

Massachusetts National Guard Supplemental Life Insurance Option

Mr. Lesser moves that the proposed new draft be amended by inserting after section 57 the following section:-

“SECTION 57A.  Said chapter 33 is hereby further amended by striking out section 88B and inserting in place thereof the following section:-

Section 88B. The commonwealth shall reimburse a servicemember’s monthly premium in the Serviceman's Group Life Insurance Program administered by the Veterans Administration or an equivalent group life insurance program of the servicemember’s choosing; provided, however, that such reimbursement shall not exceed 50 per cent of the monthly premium cost of Serviceman's Group Life Insurance. The reimbursement may be paid directly to the service member or paid as a premium payment directly to an equivalent group life insurance program of the service member’s choosing for the purchase of supplemental life insurance. The Massachusetts National Guard State Sponsored Life Insurance Program is recognized as an equivalent group life insurance program.”
