Together we can make a difference. And because strong women build strong communities, you’ll find Royal Neighbors members throughout America’s cities and hometowns changing the world. This is not a new concept for us. Volunteering and the importance of neighbor-helping-neighbor have been Royal Neighbors’ vision since 1895. It’s part of our DNA.
Why buy life insurance for your child? Whole Life insurance can provide coverage for costs involved in the unfortunate loss of a child—expenses you may not have in savings. However, it also guarantees that your child is protected with life insurance coverage regardless of changes in her or his health condition.
Age is one of the key factors in determining the cost of life insurance premiums. If you purchase your child’s life insurance now, you can lock in lower premium rates.
Did you know Whole Life insurance builds cash value that your child can access in the future? This cash value builds at a guaranteed rate and can be used as a loan for future needs like college tuition, a down payment on a home, or emergency expenses. Like any loan, interest will be charged.*
By purchasing Youth Whole Life insurance from Royal Neighbors your child will have a locked-in benefit she or he can maintain throughout life.
Riders are features you can add to customize your coverage based on your individual needs. These riders may add to the cost of your insurance. Click on the rider options below to learn more about each of the available riders.
What is a Rider? A rider is purchased separately from the base policy and provides additional benefits at additional cost.
Are you interested in having the option to access funds from your life insurance coverage if you were to become seriously ill?
If you are diagnosed with a qualifying illness as defined by the rider, our Accelerated Benefit riders allow access to a portion of the death benefit while still living. Though it is not a savings account, this rider can help provide a back-up plan for major expenses.
Accelerated Death Benefit Riders (Forms 1591-CR, 1591-CH, and 1591-T) available in all licensed states except CA. Accelerated Living Benefit Rider (Form 1766) available in CA only.
Nobody knows what the future looks like, but you can guarantee the option to add to your insurance coverage when you get there. Purchasing the Guaranteed Insurability rider guarantees the insured has the right to purchase $25,000 of additional life insurance at specified future ages or life events without a new physical exam.
