The Military Benefit Association was originally founded in 1956 to support enlisted service members with their life insurance needs. In 1963 MBA grew to support all military personnel, veterans, federal government employees and member dependents. At MBA, there is one clear mission: to make quality life insurance affordable for everyone. MBA remains true to that mission today.
“MBA is a not-for-profit organization designed to provide active, Guard and Reserve service members, veterans, government service workers and their spouses’ affordable group term life insurance as well as a plethora of other benefits,” said Gibson. “As a non-profit association, we are different from other companies because we are designed to support our members and not the profit and loss statement.”
