MBA is a non-profit organization that sponsors member benefits, including life & health insurance plans for military members, federal employees, veterans & their families!
We started out back in 1956—a group of service members who saw that their enlisted brothers and sisters in arms weren't getting a fair deal—they had few affordable life insurance options, especially compared to those for officers. Great benefits and caring member service helped us grow steadily into the 1960s. Always watching out for everyone who answers the call of duty, we offered membership to officers in 1963, and changed our name to Military Benefit Association (MBA). Since then, we've added federal civilian employees, spouses, National Guard and Reservists, honorably discharged veterans and adult former dependents of MBA members. But no matter how we change, we remain a not-for-profit organization, answering our own call of duty—more a mission than a business.
Military Benefit Association is a non-profit organization that sponsors top quality member benefits, including life and TRICARE supplement insurance plans for veterans, active duty military, retired military and military families. Other valuable benefits and discounts include reduced educational tuition fees and yearly scholarships, savings on auto and home insurance, rental car discounts and financial benefits. While this is an open forum, it's also a family friendly one, so please keep your comments and wall posts clean. In addition to keeping it family friendly, we ask that you follow our posting guidelines here. Comments and posts that do not follow these guidelines will be removed: -We do not allow graphic, obscene, explicit or racial comments or submissions nor do we allow comments that are abusive, hateful or intended to defame anyone or any organization. -We do not allow solicitations or advertisements or attempts to defame or defraud any financial, commercial agency. -We do not allow comments that suggest or encourage illegal activity. -Apparent spam will be removed and may cause the author(s) to be blocked from the page without notice. -You participate at your own risk, taking personal responsibility for your comments, your username and any information provided.
Mission: At Military Benefit Association (MBA), our mission has always been very simple: make sure the people who protect the country are protected. It's a commitment we've made for over 60 years by creating a non-profit association that focuses on the financial security of military families.
Thank you to all the true American heroes out there! #ArmedForcesDay #Army #Navy #MarineCorps #AirForce
On Peace Officers Memorial Day we honor the brave men and women in blue who have been killed or wounded in the line of duty. Sadly, there were 106 heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our communities last year. We owe a debt of gratitude to all law enforcement officers who risk their lives and face danger routinely to keep us safe.

Is the nearest VA Clinic a long trek from your house? If you are more than 30 minutes away, you may be able to utilize other health care facilities starting in June thanks to the 2018 Mission Act. Hopefully this will give veterans more accessible care in their area. Find the nearest clinic and see if you’re affected by this change on the map!
Where are VA’s health care facilities? The Mission Act will change how Veterans find health clinics, hospitals, and service centers. How does the VA stack up to the demand? This veterans affairs map illustrates where service is available throughout the continental United States.
Psst! You, yeah, you. Remember that time the movers lost the “parts” box and you had to figure out how not to lose your mind. That time you had to wipe tears from your kid’s face when you pulled away from a now familiar home; then push them toward a new friend at a new one. That time you said “I can’t do this” and then you did it. We see you. We know how hard it can be to live this life. That’s why we just have to say it: you are amazing. And we appreciate all of those big and small moments you have overcome to make your family, your community, and our nation stronger.

Every time a soldier is killed in action, it is important to remember the loved ones they leave behind. Gold Star Spouses Day recognizes the sacrifices made by those whose support and service to our country may go overlooked. We honor all surviving spouses of a member of the United States military who died in service to our country. These families bear the highest burden for the price of freedom.

The next big advancement in naval technology may be…fish! The PALS program is testing innovative new ways to approach underwater surveillance. The project, led by DARPA, is investigating fish and other aquatic organisms as surveillance to help us defend our oceans. It would allow the military to utilize organisms that naturally react to their environment to provide useful information and help detect submarines, drones and other underwater vehicles. This could save millions on traditional sonar equipment, and prevent enemies from detecting the surveillance.
What do you think??

The sophisticated sensing behaviors of marine organisms could serve as a surveillance system that aids national security

Do you know how term life insurance can save you money? Many people don’t know the difference between whole and term life insurance. Some are pulled to whole life because it builds cash value, but your dollar could go further with term! By having lower premiums, you are saving each month, and you can put that extra cash to work in a higher-growth account, like an IRA or mutual fund. Review your insurance routinely and make sure your policies are a good fit.

Did you know the color blue was originally associated with St. Patrick, not green? Americans have been celebrating this holiday since the first parade in 1762! The parade has been led by the Fighting 69th since 1852! The 69th Infantry was originally asked to lead the parade to fight off any anti-Catholic groups, but now their presence is a long standing tradition and a day the soldiers of the Battalion look forward to.
