Brother Masons:

The death benefit to your wife or designated beneficiary is $1 per Low Twelve member

plus $10 per year for each year you are a member

plus the return of any unused prepaid assessments.

When possible, this benefit is hand-delivered to your beneficiary in order to ease the burden of the expenses incurred upon your death.

How is this possible?

An assessment in the amount of $1.50 is levied against each member upon the death of a member. The assessment shall be distributed as follows: $1 to the beneficiary of the deceased member and $.50 to be used for operation expenses of the club. In addition to the $1.00 per member, the Beneficiary receives $10 for each year the deceased was a member of the club.

Example of benefits computation for a 25-year member

#of active members at death 371 $ 1.00 = $ 371

Years of Service 25 $10.00 = $ 250

Unused prepaid Assessments $ 22

PAID TO BENEFICIARY = $ 643
