The Benefits of Membership


MESSAGE from the PRESIDENT

Y

our Farm Bureau organization is the voice of agriculture at the local, state and national level. Your membership ensures that the Farm Bureau can continue to represent the producers of food and fiber who work to maintain a safe and abundant food supply and a strong economic base for our nation. Georgia Farm Bureau serves over 300,000 member families through 158 county Farm Bureau offices. Since its beginnings in 1937, Georgia Farm Bureau has continued to expand and improve services for members. In the early years, members were almost exclusively farmers, and Farm Bureau continues to be the largest voluntary farm organization in Georgia. Today’s membership includes Georgians from all walks of life, and service and benefit programs have been added to bring increased membership value to all members. It is Farm Bureau’s goal that every member will be able to review the portfolio of member services and benefits and select one or more that will save them much more than their annual dues. The leadership and staff of Georgia Farm Bureau are committed to researching, selecting and offering the best-quality and best-valued services available. Take full advantage of all of the member benefits and discounts and discover for yourself the tremendous dividends you will receive for investing in a Farm Bureau membership. We thank you for supporting Georgia agriculture and thank you for the privilege of serving you.

As part of the many benefits included with your Georgia Farm Bureau membership, you also have access to Identity Theft Consultation and Restoration Services. All eligible* family members in the household are covered and the service is included in your annual membership dues. What is identity theft? Identity theft occurs when a thief uses an individual’s personal identification information, such as a social security number, an address, and/or credit and debit card numbers without permission with the intent of committing fraud or other crimes. How does ID Theft Consultation and Restoration Service work? 3 If a GFB member suspects that their identity has been stolen, they call the toll-free number listed below and speak with a trained Member Service Specialist. 3 After gathering some basic information, a thorough assessment of the member’s unique situation will be performed to determine the nature and extent of the identity theft event. 3 Once a determination has been made that a member’s identity has been stolen, the member is assigned a Personal Recovery Advocate and a case file is opened. 3 Utilizing a Limited Power of Attorney, the Personal Recovery Advocate will work on the member’s behalf to restore their identity to pre-theft status. 3 The Personal Recovery Advocate will remain assigned for as long as it takes to restore the member’s identity to pre-theft status.

THE GEORGIA FARM BUREAU INSURANCE REVIEW....... Are you an “insurance expert”? Do you understand what’s covered in your insurance policies? Are you skilled at evaluating risks that can threaten your home, your family, your retirement or your finances? Do you have a good idea of what you are buying when you purchase an insurance product? For most of us, the answer to some or all of these questions is “no.” Insurance is one of the largest purchases households make every year, but is also one that most consumers know the least about. Wouldn’t it be great to have an “insurance expert” available when you need one? As a Georgia Farm Bureau Member, you do! The Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance Review is a unique service only for GFB Members that helps you understand and manage risk as well as understand the insurance products you purchase. This free service is available to all GFB Members, even those who purchase insurance somewhere else. We are “insurance experts,” and can help your family protect what you have worked so hard for.

Since its inception, the primary, ongoing goal of Farm Bureau is to be a united voice in the legislative arena, to promote farm markets and to provide leadership and assistance to Georgia’s agricultural community. Farm Bureau is local, state, national and international in scope and influence. A member of a county Farm Bureau automatically becomes affiliated with the Georgia Farm Bureau and the American Farm Bureau. Farm Bureau members work together to analyze problems and formulate action plans to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement thereby promoting prosperity and growth. Our grassroots policy development process and county programs assure members of constant contact and input into the programs and activities of Georgia Farm Bureau. Members determine the future of their organization. Membership is not limited to farmers. Anyone interested in agriculture and participating in one of Farm Bureau’s many services may join. Farm Bureau is dedicated to continually improving and expanding service-to-member programs. eorgia
