Who We Are

Learn more about Western Fraternal Life, our leadership, and our financial strength. Learn More


Our heritage of giving back spans decades, starting with Czech and Slovak immigrants who joined for support. Western Fraternal Life has offered member benefits and financial security exclusively to our membership since 1897. As a member-owned fraternal benefit society, our profits go back to our members and their communities not shareholders. Our unique volunteer network unites members through Western supported volunteer initiatives. Join us today and become a Western member, where you are not just a number, you are a member.

My family is 100% WFLA! I grew up just one mile from Saline Center ZCBJ Lodge #389, and each member there is practically family. I became involved at a young age with community projects and lodge activities. We recently started a YELL! Group, and I’ve really enjoyed being involved with that group.

"I feel compelled to express my thanks for the impact Western has made on my life. Not only was I graciously given the opportunity to earn scholarships to aid my post-high school education, but I was given the opportunity to get involved in the community with some of the most kind-hearted and fun people I have ever met."

Mitch Van Dyke, Scholarship Recepient

“Western Fraternal Life has been in existence for over a century and has wonderful insurance products to offer our members. I am very proud to represent such an incredible organization with strong family values. It’s a privilege to share our wonderful organization with so many families.”

Louie Caballero, Agent
