AN ORANGE BENEFICIARY.
By the action of the last session of
the Supreme Grand Orange Lodge of
the United States, at Boston, the
brethren of the Orange Order have
now a mutual aid association through
which they are enabled to avail them
selves of a cheap and equitable in
surance for the benefit of their families
upon their death. This department is
known as the Loyal Orange Mutual
Aid Association, which has been duly
Incorporated under the laws of the
state of Minnesota. This association
was formed with the one predominant
Idea of strengthening the Loyal Orange
Institution and its benefits can only be
enjoyed by its members who are In
good Btanding. Good health being a
requisite, for membership in the Orange
Order it Is not necessary for members
to go to the expense of a medical exam
ination and the liabilities are so graded
as to fully offset any omission this may
have on the death rate of its certificate
holders. The benefits under all certifi
cates are graduated as follows:
For death during the first three
months eof a"lile certificate, 1100.00;
for the socond thi'ee months, $250.00;
for the next six i. months following,
500.00; for the second year, $000,00;
for the third year, $700.00; for the
fourth year, $800.00; for the fifth year,
$000.00.! After the fifth year the bene
fit will be $1,000, the sum stated in the
face of the certificate.
The assessments are made quarterly
and range from $2.00 for persons be
tween the ages of 21 and 27; for men
bers aged 28 to 32 years, $2.15; 33 to 36,
$2.25; 37 to 40, $2.40; 41 to 44, $2 55. 45
to 47, $2.90; 48 to 50, $3.20; 51 to 52,
$3.25; 53 to 54, $3.40; 55, $3.50 and so
on to 60 years at $4.55 per quarter.
These assessments include the total
expense of maintaining the department,
and every member is the absolute
owner of his certificate and controls Its
disposition. All benefits received by
the beneficiary under these certificates
are exempt from the payment of debts
of a deceased member and are paid
direct to the beneficiary whose interest
is protected by law.
The fee required for membership is
$2.50, and the assessment according to
age must be paid before the expiration
af three months. Application must be
made on blanks of the Association
which may be had by applying to M.
L. Zook at the office of the American
Publishing Company who is the
State Organizer for Nebraska, Iowa,
Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Wy
oming, to whom all lodges within this
territory should apply for supplies.
Corresindonoe is invited from all
members of the Orange Order.
