Following up from an article I wrote last week about Foresters giving Emergency Assistance to those affected by the floods in Alberta, here are 9 very intriguing reasons why you should consider applying for insurance with Foresters:
Well Being Benefits
1. Everyday Money
Our toll-free and confidential phone-based financial helpline gives you access to an accredited counselor who can help answer your questions about everyday management of your money.
2. Legal Link
Access certain free and discounted legal services in your area. Connect with lawyers for help with a variety of issues including wills, home ownership and family law.
3. Orphan Benefit
A monthly payment for orphans, which pays $900 per month per child to the legal guardian for children under 18 upon the death of both Parents.
4. Terminal Illness Loan
An interest-free loan may be provided for an insured member who becomes terminally ill. The total loan can be up to 75% of the total amount of the Foresters life insurance on that insured. The maximum loan amount is $250,000.
Grants and Shcolarships
5. Foresters Competitive Scholarships
Each year, the Foresters Competitive Scholarship Program offers up to 250 scholarships for tuition for higher learning worth up to $11,000 each in the US and Canada. Students of any age with a minimum 40 hours community service and a GPA of at least 2.8% or 70% may apply.
6. Orphan Scholarships
The Scholarship benefit provides the children of deceased members with a renewable higher learning scholarship of up to $6,000 per year for up to four years to cover tuition and maintenance.
7. Emergency Assistance Program
Emergency grants are available to provide short term, temporary financial assistance to members affected by significant personal hardship, disaster or large scale emergency. This benefit is a one-time, per disaster payment.
8. Project Grants
Later this year, members will be encouraged to use Foresters new online granting system. With funds from Foresters, members like you will have the opportunity to organize local volunteer projects that contribute to the well-being of families and communities.
9. Fun Family Events
In our busy lives, it’s important to take time to focus on our families. That’s why each year Foresters offers tons of fun events that give our members a chance to relax and connect with each other and their loved ones. Sporting events, theme parks, zoos, circuses, museums – there’s an event for everyone, no matter what you’re interested in! Our fun Foresters sponsored events allow you and your family to enjoy quality time together without the hassle of planning or the burden of high costs. More than 108,000 Foresters members and their families have attended more than 1000 family activities and volunteering events. We hope you and your family will join in too!
