5th District American Legion Benefit Association (ALBA)

ALBA is a special program of the Georgia 5th District established to provide immediate financial assistance to the families of deceased members. It is not, as some miss-informed Legionnaires have said, an insurance policy. The only qualification to join is that the individual be a member, in good standing, of the American Legion Family - Legion, Auxiliary, or Sons-of-The American Legion.

The initial cost to join is $11.00, of which $5.00 is a one-time administrative fee and $6.00 is your initial assessment. Upon notification of the death of a member, the named beneficiary will receive a check totaling $1.50 times the number of members in ALBA. Example: 500 members X $1.50 = $750.00. Each ALBA member's account will be reduced by $1.50. When a member's account reaches a remaining balance of $1.50 or less (3 deaths), a reassessment for $6.00 will be sent out. Members may pay in more than the $6.00 assessment, if they wish to do so.

This program is simply The American Legion Family helping others of our Family at the most stressed time of their lives. For more information or applications, call James Robinson, Administrator, (678) 289-9123, or contact any 5th District Officer.
