Life Membership Plan
Joining the Oddfellows family
Following a vote at our Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday, 14 November, Kingston Unity Delegates have voted in favour of the Society joining with Oddfellows Manchester.
While your Life Membership Plan will transfer to Oddfellows, the terms and conditions of your plan will remain exactly the same. If you would like more information about this, you can contact us. Alternatively, you can learn more about the merger here.
Low-Cost Life Cover
Your Life Membership Plan is designed to provide you with the option of life cover at an affordable premium. Your premiums are set at the start of your plan and will never increase as you get older.
Your Life Membership Plan offers a range of additional benefits at no extra cost such as an Interest Account and a Medical Account which can be used to claim back medical costs such as dental, medical and optical expenses.
Our mutual ethos means our Members are our shareholders. This has been the bedrock of our society for over 178 years. As part of this, every three years your plan receives a valuation and any surplus profit is shared back to you.
Additional benefits at no extra cost
When you took out your Life Membership Plan with Kingston Unity, you were given access to additional Membership Scheme benefits. These include a Medical Account and Interest Account. The money in your Medical Account can be used to claim back medical costs such as dental, medical and optical expenses. The money in your Interest Account can be used to make cash withdrawals when you need it.
Any profits made from the Membership Fund, where your premiums are invested, are distributed back to you via your Medical and Interest Accounts.
