New RNA form required at point-of-sale in Illinois
Effective March 15, 2012, a new form will be required to be disclosed by agents at point-of-sale for certificates sold in Illinois. Royal Neighbors of America is required to provide prospective members notice at point-of-sale regarding our compliance with the Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act (750 ILCS 75/1).
The Act creates a legal relationship between two persons of the same or opposite sex who form a civil union. These parties are entitled to the same obligations, responsibilities, protections and benefits that are afforded or recognized by the laws of Illinois to spouses.
Please review the attached new form for more details. This form will also be mailed to all current certificate-owners and insured individuals who reside in Illinois. Owners of certificates issued in Illinois will also receive this notice.
To make it easy to do business with Royal Neighbors, this form will be included with all supply orders requested for Illinois point-of-sale materials placed through our agent website. This form will be required until Royal Neighbors has filed new applications with the Interstate Insurance Compact incorporating this disclosure.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please contact Sales Support at (800) 770-4561, option 5.
