RS 00301.470 Deemed Fully Insured Status for World War II (WW II) Veterans
A. Background for deemed fully insured status for WW II veterans
We may deem, under certain circumstances, a WWII veteran who separated from active military service before July 27, 1951, and died within three years after such separation to have died fully insured.
B. Operating policy for deemed fully insured status for WW II veterans
This provision affords survivors insurance protection where the veteran, prevented during his WWII service from acquiring quarters of coverage, died before he or she had a chance to gain or regain an insured status.
