The Department of Colorado American Legion and the Legionnaire Insurance Trust (LIT) are constantly looking to improve the value of your membership. And, we have some exciting news to report!

Since 1966, the LIT has been offering a competitive, dependable package of insurance choices to protect Legionnaires and their family. Our goal is to continue serving Legion families for decades to come. With the future in mind, we are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2014 the A+ rated Transamerica family of insurance companies will become the new provider for our Hospital Indemnity Protection and Cancer Care programs with additional programs to follow soon.

Transamerica is committed to serving Colorado Legionnaires and their families with superior customer service that has made them an industry leader for over 100 years.  Transamerica is also dedicated to staying ahead of your insurance needs in a changing world and will periodically update their coverage(s) to stay current with insurance laws and regulations as well as how healthcare is delivered.

If you are one of the thousands of Legion families currently enrolled in these products, rest assured that the transition will be as simple as possible. All you have to do is pay your next bill and your coverage will continue.

New products will be coming on board soon because of LIT’s partnership with Transamerica and you will see these items offered to Your Colorado American Legion Department in the coming months.

We look forward to this new partnership with Transamerica, and to continuing our commitment of service and protection to you and your loved ones.

Note: This provider change does not apply to the “No Cost To You” LegionCare Accidental Death policy at this time. Please continue to apply via the enrollment form you can ask for at your post.
