The VFW Insurance Program makes it easy.
From funeral or cremation planning to long-term care needs, we offer unique life planning products you need to prepare for the future. We approve only national top-rated companies to offer our products, so you can be assured your future is in good hands.
Emergency Assistance Plus® (EA+®)
If you become sick or hurt while traveling—in a place you don’t know, with a medical staff you’ve never met—the Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+) Program, administered by AGIA, will come to your rescue with services vital in an emergency. Whether you’re on a short trip away from home, or on the other side of the world, EA+ is available at an affordable, low annual rate for VFW members and their families. Services of EA+ include*:
- Medical evacuation & transportation home
- Assistance for companions
- Medical & travel assistance and so much more!
*This is only an outline of the Plan’s features. Please read your Member Guide carefully for the full rules and regulations. EA+ is not insurance, it is a travel assistance service program.
There’s a quick way to help secure greater financial confidence for your family—On-the-Move Accident Insurance, administered by AGIA. This policy is an accidental death protection plan that covers you whenever and wherever you’re traveling, starting the moment you leave your driveway.
By activating your On-the-Move Accident Insurance through AGIA, you’ll lock in important benefits like:
$150,000 in Accidental Death (death while traveling in a private motor vehicle)
An additional $150,000 if death occurs while traveling in a common carrier vehicle
$500 cash for every day you stay in the hospital, up to 12 months, because of a covered travel accident
Group rate premium of $7.61/month
As a VFW Member, you’re officially eligible to receive this $150,000 coverage. You cannot be turned down, regardless of your health, occupation, past driving records or the number of miles you travel annually.
*All benefit amounts reduce by 50% at age 75, regardless of age at enrollment. Please refer to the “Terms” section for exclusions.

Funeral Planning Program
There is a lot of confusion amongst veterans regarding their VA Burial benefits.
The government does an excellent job providing burial benefits if you use a VA national or state veterans cemetery. However, for the average veteran, there are very limited to no monetary benefits for the funeral or cremation service necessary to get you there. That is why the VFW works closely with Dignity Memorial to provide funeral and cremation benefits for members that complement their VA burial benefits.
The Dignity Memorial® Network is the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.
As a VFW member, you and your spouse will receive special savings and access to valuable family support benefits that can help reduce the emotional and financial burdens often associated with the loss of a loved one.
Visit with a Dignity Memorial Funeral Planning Advisor to learn about this valuable program and ensure you receive all the benefits you earned as a veteran discharged as anything other than dishonorable. Also ask for your free Personal Planning Guide that will help you get started on making your personalized funeral or cremation arrangements.
