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. 

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
