About Us

We are different

Generally, neither women nor children were insurable more than 120 years ago. But Royal Neighbors changed that. As one of the largest women-led life insurers in the U.S., we promise to financially protect you and your family. That’s the true meaning of life insurance – to protect the lives of those you love. But it goes deeper. We’re not just about selling life insurance. As a member you will receive free and discounted services for things like prescriptions, legal services, and online shopping. We also offer grants such as our Nation of Neighbors Program and educational scholarships. 

And we will support your local community improvement projects. That’s where the name Royal Neighbors came from - combining “neighbor-helping-neighbor” with “royal,” signifying our founders’ belief in the nobility of the work they would do. In 2019 our members generated $18 million in what we call Social Good through programs and support from Royal Neighbors.

Our Mission

Our unique mission of insuring lives, supporting women, and serving communities stems from being a fraternal benefit society and an organization with a dual mission of both providing financial protection through life insurance and “neighbor-helping-neighbor” community service. Royal Neighbors is a different kind of insurance organization.

We invite you to be a member of our Royal Neighbors family, take part in our programs, and join us in making a difference.

We are financially strong & stable
