I recently found out that stillborns are now covered under the SGLI bill. This means that they are insured for $10,000. All you do is go to the SGLI office with the death certificate, something that has baby's gestation and weight (the baby has to be at least 20 weeks and I think 200 grams), and a blank check to void. It is painful because it feels like they are putting a price to your baby but it is quick. It is supposed to take less than a month to get the money into your account and it really helps with funeral costs (which if you live near a base the funeral homes tend to cut the cost some). Hope this helps because I didn't know about it.
