2022: Another Exciting Year at BetterLife

This year we celebrate the 125th anniversary of BetterLife, a momentous occasion that has been decades in the making. We will observe the rich history of our organization and celebrate our past as we continue to build our future. Check out a few of the exciting things we have planned as we celebrate this important milestone.

Our 125 Years History Book

To honor the history of BetterLife, we will be releasing our 125 Years of History Book. This book will be available to all members later this summer. Be on the lookout for how you can order a copy and walk down memory lane with us.

125th Celebration at BetterLifeBetterLife will celebrate 125 years of serving our members and your communities by hosting a weekend-long celebration in Cedar Rapids, IA, from July 22-24, 2022.

In addition, members and their families will have the opportunity to give back to the community and leave inspired.

2022 Signature Event: Scavenger Hunt 

Our 2022 Signature Event will feature a scavenger hunt for all ages. Our participating branches and lodges will host the events, but all members and nonmembers are welcome to join in on the fun from the end of February through August 2022. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to travel and meet other members across the state or even the country! If you aren’t able to travel, you can still participate in our branch and lodge trivia. To support our fraternal theme, Year of the Veterans, we will donate one dollar to the National Veterans Foundation for every participating member.

If you are interested in hosting a scavenger hunt or participating in our Signature Event, please reach out to the Member Engagement Team at memberengagement@betterlifeins.com.

Year of the Veterans

Honoring Our Veterans at BetterLifeTo our men and women in uniform, past, present, and future: thank you for your sacrifice and your service. We are the home of the free because of the brave. We honor you today and every day.

Throughout 2022, we will be sharing stories of our member Veterans and featuring Veteran-themed articles in our BetterLife Magazine. We’ll even have a special edition of the magazine in November, entirely focused on our Veterans, just in time for Veterans Day! Additionally, at our 125th Celebration, there will be a special ceremony honoring those who have served.

Providing Better Service to Our Members

In 2022, we’re excited to announce a couple of new initiatives designed to help us better serve our members.

The first is the beginning of BetterLife’s Digital Transformation Project. We will be modernizing and improving processes throughout the year to make it easier for you to get quotes on new protection plans, make updates to your policies, and more. The second is our renewed focus on growing. Over the past year, we’ve dedicated significant time and effort to adding skilled, passionate agents to our team. And moving into 2022, we have big plans to launch a new agency. With more agents and agency locations, we can provide better service to you, our members!

Stay tuned for more information on how we are making 2022 a year of celebrations!
