"First impressions are always important,
and in architectural terms it is surely doors
that provide the first impression
of a building or a room."

Shown here are two of the doors
at the Gyda Varden Lodge.

Wouldn’t it be great if you never needed any kind of insurance?
Or if you got a refund if you never used it?
Or even better yet if you got more money back than you paid in if you never needed it?!

Have we got a deal for you!
Sons of Norway now offers a chronic illness accelerated benefit rider to our universal life insurance certificates.
This allows you to get a portion of the death benefit to pay for your long term care expenses if you should have any.
Keep in mind this rider is not intended to necessarily cover all of your expenses if you should have any.
If you are one of the lucky 30%
of people that never develop a chronic illness after age 65, all of the death benefit goes to your heirs when you die.
So let’s see, you pay a premium less than your ultimate benefit.
You can get monthly payments to help cover long term care expenses for yourself if needed
and if you never need it your family gets a lump sum payout income tax free!
Check with your Sons of Norway Financial Benefits Counselor to see if you can qualify for our chronic illness accelerated benefit rider
and help secure your financial future.
