As part of Foresters commitment to doing more to help those affected, the following measures have also been implemented to support Foresters members and clients through these challenging times:
- Emergency Assistance: Foresters has enacted the Emergency Assistance benefit to all eligible members experiencing significant personal hardship as a result of the floods. Members who are directly affected by the floods can contact Foresters to receive grants to help with immediate needs
- Premiums: Members in affected areas who are facing serious financial challenges can contact Foresters to investigate alternative payment arrangements and explore various forms of relief that may best suit their needs.
- Loans and Withdrawals:All requests for loans or withdrawals will be given priority handling. Members will be directed to their Foresters insurance representative to quickly obtain the necessary forms if their access to postal delivery is hampered or they are not in a position to print the forms themselves.
- Death Claims: Foresters has temporarily amended our processing to handle death claims in the affected areas, as members may have difficulty obtaining documentation due to the disaster. For reported claims having benefit amounts up to
$25,000and certificates that were issued more than two years prior to death, Foresters will accept a copy of the obituary and contact information for the funeral home to confirm loss details, rather than requiring a certified death certificate.
Affected members can contact Foresters toll-free at 800-828-1540 between the hours of
