As of April 2015, NGAT is issuing a FREE $1,000 life insurance policy for everyone who is active in the Texas National Guard -- both Army and Air Guard. The policy will be effective until you are no longer in the Texas National Guard. Members of the State Guard are not eligible for the free life insurance policy.You do not have to do anything to sign up for this policy. Your beneficiary is the person you have listed on your SGLI.
NGAT started publishing a digital edition of the magazine, in addition to the printed copy, two years ago. A notice was published in several magazine editions, requesting you to contact us if you wanted to continue receiving the magazine by regular mail.
Stay in touch with what's going on with NGAT. If you are not receiving your NGAT News magazine by email or regular mail, contact us today! Call 512-454-7300 or click the link below to email us.
The state legislative session ended with no legislation amending the Hazlewood educational benefits. The Senate and House could not agree on changes to eligibility or legacy, so Hazlewood remains unchanged. Basic eligibility is to have entered the service from Texas, served at least 180 days in Title 10 status, and be a resident of the state. The eligible veteran may use the 150 free credit hours at a state university, or may pass eligibility to a dependent child. We strongly recommend that you avail yourself of the benefit at the earliest time possible, because the benefit (basic and/or legacy) remains at risk.
The purpose of the National Guard Association of Texas shall be to promote, safeguard, and advance the interests of the Texas Military Forces and the National Guard of the United States as a component of the Armed Forces of the United States.
