Opportunity for generations to bond around the importance of giving back to their communities
(Toronto, ON, July 6, 2020) – Foresters Financial™ (Foresters) today announces it is now one of very few industry players to offer standalone Children’s Whole Life Insurance, with the launch of BrightFuture, its first product designed specifically for those currently under the age of 18.1
Available from July 5, 2020, a single BrightFuture application can be used to apply for coverage for up to six children. By purchasing BrightFuture, the owner, whether it be a parent, grandparent, or other legal guardian, protects an insured child’s future insurability at a low cost and provides the child with an opportunity to join a purpose-driven organization that gives its members the chance to make a difference in their community. The owner can transfer the ownership to the child at any age and time of their choosing2.
The premiums, death benefit amount, and cash value are guaranteed for the child’s lifetime and the built-in Guaranteed Insurability Rider permits the insured to purchase additional life insurance coverage at specific ages or for future life events (such as marriage) without any further underwriting at the time. Up to three supplementary riders are also included at no added premium – an Accelerated Death Benefit Rider (Terminal Illness), a Common Carrier Accidental Death Rider, and a Family Health Benefit Rider.
Create A Legacy Of Giving Back
As a fraternal organization, Foresters offers its members unique benefits3, including competitive academic scholarships, orphan benefits, and complimentary access to create on-line wills and powers of attorney4. Importantly, it also provides opportunities for members to give back to their community through Community Involvement Grants.
With BrightFuture, the insured has access to these benefits from the age of 16. And when the certificate-owner is also a Foresters member, they can enjoy their benefits together with the child, passing on a community-oriented value set and teaching life-lessons while building their relationship.
Foresters Financial Chief Distribution Officer Matt Berman, said, “At Foresters, we offer Life Insurance with a Larger Purpose – to enrich the lives of our members and communities. With BrightFuture, you’re not just buying life insurance, you are insuring a child’s insurability later in life, and creating a legacy with the gift of a Foresters membership. As they get older, the child can be part of a like-minded community keen to make a difference in the world. With membership, Foresters offers parents and grandparents the opportunity to teach their children the importance of giving back to their community. This purpose-driven mindset can create a great bond across generations and establish a meaningful legacy.”
