The National Catholic Society of Foresters (NCSF), a nationwide fraternal organization based in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, has selected Andesa Services, a leading provider of comprehensive, integrated solutions for life insurance and annuity carriers and producers, to provide NCSF with a wide variety of services, including policy administration, illustrations, member self-service portals, and reporting.
NCSF will convert more than 30,000 active life insurance contracts to Andesa’s secure, cloud-based administration systems by early 2016.
NCSF National President Margaret Schmitt said, “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Andesa as we bring NCSF into the future, utilizing the newest and most comprehensive technology available.”
“We are thrilled to welcome the National Catholic Society of Foresters to the Andesa family of clients,” said Ron Scheese, President and CEO of Andesa Services. “We look forward to providing NCSF with a suite of technology solutions that will allow them to increase operational agility, ensure security and compliance and provide even better service to their members. We believe that, by leveraging Andesa’s cloud-based systems, NCSF will be able to deploy its resources in such a way as to promote long-term membership growth and prosperity.”
Early in 1891, a mother of six children in Holy Family Parish, Chicago, passed away. There was no money to pay for funeral expenses; a collection had to be taken up. Thus, the seed was planted in the ladies of the parish to create a fraternal organization exclusively for Catholic women. The group originally used the name Women’s Catholic Order of Foresters (WCOF) and was organized for the purpose of benevolent co-operation among Catholic women, while offering life insurance at low rates. Today, the hopes of the founders for success and prosperity have been fully realized. WCOF is now the NATIONAL CATHOLIC SOCIETY OF FORESTERS (NCSF) – providing life insurance and annuities to all members of Catholic families.
Headquartered in Mount Prospect, Illinois, NCSF is licensed to do business in 17 states and serves more than 29,000 members. As a member of the American Fraternal Alliance, NCSF’s size ranks them as the 33rd largest fraternal organization. The organization offers its members a broad portfolio of products, social and educational opportunities, and other benefits. For more information about the organization, visit www.ncsf.com.
