Management’s Report to the Membership



Royal Neighbors of America is committed to improving the lives of our members by providing affordable life insurance and annuities products, savings plans designed to make the most of your budget and philanthropic and volunteer programs that make a positive social impact in your community.

Royal Neighbors’ responsible growth strategies ensure we can meet our obligations to certificateholders while funding our philanthropic initiatives. In 2022, our net income decreased due to lower investment income and higher expenses, partially offset by greater realized capital gains. Our surplus available to provide future certificateholders’ benefits remains well in excess of the minimum statutory requirements. Our continued financial strength demonstrates our long-term commitment to members and ability to meet our financial obligations.

We are pleased to report AM Best affirmed our rating A Excellent on November 17, 2022.

We are especially proud of the efforts by our members in supporting their neighbors and communities. Together, we continue to make a difference, generating a new high in Social Good (how we measure our philanthropic impact) of $24.5 million, including more than 342,000 hours of volunteer service, an increase of over 20% from the prior year.

Our continued success in 2022 reflects our dual commitment of providing insurance protection to members and opportunities to make a difference in communities. The charitable passion and ongoing commitment to women’s empowerment by our membership is an enduring principle of Royal Neighbors, and one we are proud to support.
