Is F&G fraternal now?
Besides the one I mentioned earlier I'm looking at my own policy from RNA and it says, "this certificate (policy) is a legal contract...."
I'm looking a Foresters contract too. I don't see policy on there yet.
Yep, a COI is just proof of insurance without being the actual policy. Happens all the time.
Why KSKJ has policy versus certificate on the contract is beyond me, but it is still a certificate because they are a fraternal.
