Iowa Receives Check for $78,921 from Legionnaires Insurance Trust
The Legionnaire Insurance Trust (LIT) was formed in 1966 with two primary goals: to provide Legion families with low-cost insurance protection and to provide a source of revenue to participating Legion Departments.
On April 16, 2013, the Department of Iowa received $78,921 for our participation in the program for the past year – giving the Department a grand total of $1,265,526 received since joining the program in 1992.
Also, in the same period of time, hundreds of millions of dollars in claim benefits have been paid to Legionnaires and their families through the LIT; and over $69 million in allocations have been paid to participating Legion Departments.
The first Trust insurance plan to be offered was the Hospital Income Protection plan, a program designed to pay fixed dollar amounts for periods of hospital confinement. Over the years, other insurance coverage offered included: Cancer, Accidental Death, Travel Accident, Critical Illness, Disability Income, Emergency Assistance, Long Term Care, Medicare Supplement, Discount Cards, Dental, Whole Life, Auto, Homeowners, Identity Theft, and Home Health Care.
The Legionnaire Insurance Trust provides a FREE Accidental Death and Dismemberment policy to all members of the Department of Iowa. The policy is free - but you must enroll to begin your coverage and you must also periodically renew your free policy.
The LIT makes enrollment easy. You can enroll or renew your free policy by calling 800-235-6943 or by visiting the website at www.theLIT.com. Each Post will also be receiving a supply of postcards which can be distributed with each member’s membership card. The postcards can be completed by the member and returned to LIT.
Currently, only 35% of our members are enrolled for this free benefit. Do not miss this opportunity to enroll – for yourself and your family. Call 800-235-6943 to enroll today or visit www.theLIT.com. Enrolling now extends your free coverage until August 31, 2016.
Display boards for Posts are also available by request at no charge. The display boards outline the products available through the LIT and include brochures for requesting more information. To order a Post display, simply contact Department Headquarters at 800-365-8387.
Be sure to check the LIT for your other insurance needs as well. LIT programs are highly competitive and provide much needed revenue for Department programs.
