For more than 125 years, Royal Neighbors of America has recognized that the U.S. is more than a nation of individuals; we are a nation of communities, a nation of neighbors. This is the founding principal that inspired nine women to start an organization that became one of the first to insure women, and then children. Driven by a desire to make a difference for other women and their communities, what started as a social gathering grew to be one of the largest women-led life insurers in the country.

As a member of Royal Neighbors, you are a member of a fraternal benefit society. Fraternal benefit societies are membership-based organizations that are centered on three great traditions.

  • First, individuals voluntarily join together based upon a common bond.
  • Second, they organize themselves with their fellow members through a network of local organizations called chapters.
  • And, third, there is a strong commitment to mutual support of the members and service to communities.

As a member, you can financially protect your family and make an impact in your neighborhood. Whether you have a little time or a lot, we have many ways you can make a difference about things you care about, things that make your local town or city a better place to live and grow.
