7.5. Applying for VMLI
Servicemembers or veterans who receive a grant for the purchase of Specially Adapted Housing are advised by Loan Guaranty personnel at their interview of their eligibility for VMLI to cover the unpaid mortgage on their home.
The Specially Adapted Housing Agent will help the servicemember or veteran complete VA Form 29-8636, Application for Veterans' Mortgage Life Insurance. If a Servicemember or Veteran does not apply for VMLI coverage at that time, VA will send a letter informing them that they are eligible for such coverage. In addition to completing VA Form 29-8636, the servicemember or veteran must provide information about their current mortgage.
