Royal Neighbors is a different kind of insurance organization. We're financially strong, stable, and have an A Rating from AM Best2. We protect our members financially with easy to understand life insurance and annuity products. But, there’s so much more to Royal Neighbors.
We were founded in 1895 by nine strong women, as a mission-driven, fraternal benefit society. Our founders realized that in families, both men and women needed insurance protection. So, Royal Neighbors was one of the first to offer life insurance to women. Today, we are a successful business dedicated to empowering women and local communities through volunteerism.
Being socially-conscious isn’t new for Royal Neighbors. Through our chapter system, Royal Neighbors members have been volunteering and doing good things in their local communities for more than 125 years. Through our programs, we help stimulate volunteerism in the neighborhoods where our members live, work, and play. We continue to honor our tradition of empowering women and girls.
