54 STAT.] 76TH CONG. , 3D SESS.-CH. 757-OCT. 8, 1940 deemed to have been properly made and to satisfy fully the obligation of the United States under such insurance policy to the extent of such payments. (m) The Administrator shall, by regulations, prescribe the time and method of payment of the premiums on such insurance, but payments of premiums in advance shall not be required for periods of more than one month each, and may at the election of the insured be deducted from his active service pay or be otherwise made. (n) Upon application by the insured and under such regulations as the Administrator may promulgate, payment of premiums on such insurance may be waived during continuous total disability of the insured which commenced subsequent to the effective date of such insurance and which has existed for six consecutive months or more prior to the attainment by the insured of the age of sixty years, effective as of the due date of the monthly premium becoming pay- able on or after the first day of the seventh consecutive month of such disability: Provided, That application for waiver is made while the insurance is currently kept in force by the payment of premiums, and the insured furnishes proof satisfactory to the Administrator showing that he is and has been continuously totally disabled for six or more months prior to attaining sixty years of age. Any waiver granted by the Administrator under this subsection shall not become effective prior to the date of application therefor; except that, in the discretion of the Administrator, it may be made effec- tive at any time within a period of not more than six months prior to such date but in no event prior to the first day of the seventh month of such continuous disability. Any premiums tendered to cover a period during which such waiver is effective shall be refunded. The Administrator shall provide by regulations for reexaminations of beneficiaries under this subsection and, in the event that it is found that an insured is no longer totally disabled, the waiver of premiums shall cease as of the date of such finding and the policy of insurance may be continued by payment of premiums as provided in said policy. Premium rates shall be calculated without charge for the cost of the waiver of premiums herein provided and no deduction from benefits otherwise payable shall be made on account thereof. (o) The Administrator shall promptly determine and publish the terms and conditions of such insurance. Pending the promulgation of the terms and conditions of the five year level premium term policy and the printing of such policy the Administrator may issue a certificate in lieu thereof as evidence that insurance has been granted and the rights and liabilities of the applicant and of the United States shall be those specified by the terms and conditions of the policy when published. (p) Such insurance may be made effective, as specified in the appli- cation, not later than the first day of the calendar month following the date of application therefor, but the United States shall not be liable thereunder for death occurring prior to such effective date. (q) Such insurance shall be issued m any multiple of $500 and the amount of such insurance with respect to any one person shall be not less than $1,000 or more than $10,000. SEc. 603. No person may carry a combined amount of National Service Life Insurance and United States Government life insurance in excess of $10,000 at any one time. SEO. 604.
