Thank You for Helping Us Grow

We’ve received great feedback since we launched our new and improved Customer Benefits Program*. We didn’t approach these changes lightly, putting in nearly two years of research beforehand to find what our customers and potential customers really want and need.  And thanks to excellent input from WoodmenLife associates, customers, National Board members, and the general public, we’re pleased at the great response these benefits are receiving.

Here are just a few statistics. Since we launched the new program March 1:

Thank you for embracing these benefits, and for seeing how they set us apart from other life insurance organizations. We recently sent postcards to nearly 7,000 high school seniors who may be eligible for the WoodmenLife Focus Forward Scholarship. If you are planning on applying, please do so via the Member Website by the April 14 deadline.

In addition to nearly $1 million in scholarships, the extras customers get just for choosing WoodmenLife include the Life’s Perks discount program, family events, volunteer opportunities, and financial assistance in times of hardship.

Thank you again for helping us make these changes a reality and for supporting WoodmenLife.

*Customer benefits are available to members. An individual becomes a member by joining our shared commitment to family, community and country, and by purchasing a WoodmenLife product. These fraternal benefits are not contractual, are subject to change and have specific eligibility requirements.
