Unclaimed property

Unclaimed property generally refers to funds or assets that have been forgotten or gone unclaimed for an extended period of time. In the life insurance context, it can include the death benefit, maturity value, or a cheque sent to you that was not cashed.

If you believe you are the owner of unclaimed property being held by The Independent Order of Foresters or Foresters Life Insurance Company, or are acting on behalf of someone who has this belief, and would like us to investigate then please contact Foresters Financial at 800-828-1540 and a representative will contact you within five business days to find out more information about your circumstances.

British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec have laws requiring the holders of unclaimed property make reasonable efforts to locate and contact their rightful owners, if their last known address was in one of these provinces.
