About Legionnaire Insurance Trust

Why Do Nearly Half a Million of Your Fellow Veterans Choose the Legionnaire Insurance Trust to Protect Themselves & their Families?

For Over Four Decades the LEGIONNAIRE INSURANCE TRUST PROGRAM has been your Department endorsed source for Membership Benefits and Insurance Plans.

Founded in 1965, the LIT is a not-for-profit Trust comprised of Departments of The American Legion that elect to participate in the programs of the LIT. Today, forty-eight (48) Legion Departments representing some 2.0 million members comprise the LIT.

During these years the LIT had returned $99 Million dollars back to the Departments and pays for things that benefit you and your community like renovations to Legion Baseball fields and salaries for VA officers at the VA to assist members with claims.

Now faced with declining membership we realize the need to help increase awareness of the Legion and all that it offers its members. To face this issue head on we've produced "LIT for Life" - a video series dedicated to Legionnaires who have demonstrated uncommon valor in their war time assignments and continue to serve their fellow Americans in their civilian lives.

It is through their stories we hope to inspire future generations of Veterans to become involved and spread the word about all the benefits available to Legionnaires and their families. Please take a moment to learn more about the LIT and share the LIT for Life link with your friends. If you have a story to share you could earn your Post a $1000 Award if selected for the series.
