Fraternal benefit societies like UCT serve a dual purpose. On the one hand, they offer affordable insurance protection to their members and, on the other, provide members with mutual aid and support through fraternal benefit and discount programs. Unlike ordinary insurance organizations, fraternal benefit societies operate through councils, chapters or lodges for the exclusive benefit of their members and for altruistic good in local communities
In addition to the obvious benefit of your insurance coverage, UCT offers many advantages:
