At WSA Fraternal Life our hallmark has always been the loyalty of WSA to our members. As part of our long tradition of trust, the integrity of our members' financial information has been and will continue to be paramount. We are proud that WSA has never shared our members' and customers' information to outside parties for marketing purposes. We maintain high standards to safeguard your personal financial information at all times.
However, Title V of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act as enacted by Congress requires the adoption of a formal privacy protection policy to safeguard non-public personal information. As a result, the following is a privacy commitment which has been approved by WSA's Board of Directors for the benefit of our members.
Following is a summary of WSA's privacy standards. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Important information about purchases of covered products
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all fraternal benefit societies to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who purchases a covered product.
What this means for you: when you purchase one of our covered products, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you.
