Insurance and Religious


#1

Do religious, like priests, monks, nuns, or anyone else who is financially dependent on the Church receive insurance coverage? Including health, auto, life, etc.


#2

Yes. My daughter joined a community as a nun this past year. We (her parents) are required to pay her health insurance for the first year (as a postulant). After that the community takes up the coverage.


#3

Yes. Some Orders even cover the person during their time as a candidate/postulant, at least for health. Not sure about life or auto.


#4

That’s good. I assumed they did, but I wasn’t certain. Thanks for answering. :slight_smile:

And 64bob, I wish your daughter all the best in her vocation. :slight_smile:
