Royal Neighbors of America is a fraternal benefit society whose mission is to protect women and their families financially through life insurance and annuities and empower them to improve their lives, families, and communities. Royal Neighbors was founded
in 1895 by nine pioneering women on the belief that when we come together, we can make a difference and drive change for the better.
As a Member, you have access to unique programs and resources to pursue dreams like going to college, leading a project for a cause close to your heart, and joining our national chapter network of volunteers. You also enjoy easy access to savings offers designed to help you maximize your budget and improve your health.
Beneficial Members are Members who have a financial product with Royal Neighbors. These Members are insured by Royal Neighbors or are the owners of an annuity or settlement contract with Royal Neighbors. There is no additional membership fee.
General Members are Members who don’t have a financial product with us and are 15 years or older who apply for membership and pay an annual membership fee of $20. Anyone holding a General Membership who has not reached the age of 15 is considered a Youth General Member. Annual membership fees are not required for Youth General Members.
