In recent months we have had a number of calls from our members requesting information on the “Paid Up For Life” program. Hopefully the information below will answer a few of your questions and help you decide if you would like to become a Paid Up For Life (PUFL) member. What is a Paid-Up-For-Life Membership? It’s a membership that you purchase with a lump sum or after 36 equal monthly payments. Does Paid-Up-For-Life mean my insurance is paid too? No however, if you have American Legion Life insurance, you wont have to be concerned about your insurance being cancelated because you forgot to pay your dues one year. You’re paid up for life. You must still pay your insurance premium when it is due. What about my subscription to The American Legion Magazine? It’s paid-up too, and you’ll continue to receive monthly issues for life. How do people know I’m Paid-Up-For-Life? Once the cost of your membership has been paid in full, you will receive a Permanent plastic card identifying you as a Paid-Up-For-Life member. You will also receive an annual membership card each year, at no additional cost. Who is eligible? Any member in good standing (with dues paid up for the current year.) How much will it cost me? Your cost is based on two factors; your age and the amount of your post’s dues, at the time you purchase your Paid-Up-For-Life Membership. See the rate table at the end of this article. Do I have to pay the full amount at once? No. Now with our new payment plan, the cost of a Paid-Up-For-Life Membership can be broken down into 36 easy, monthly payments. Is a Paid-Up-For-Life Member the same as a Life Member? No. A Paid-Up-For-Life Membership is purchased, while a Life Membership is honorary and provided my the member’s post. COST OF A PAID-UP-FOR-LIFE MEMBERSHIP A PUFL membership is based on two factors - the member’s age at the time of purchase and the total dues of the Post at the same time/ The total dues of the Post include the department and national per capita and the amount of the annual dues retained by the post. The dues amount used to compute the cost may NOT be less than the sum department and national per capita combined. Post 912’s dues are $.40.00 per year.
