CSA Fraternal Life is America’s Oldest Fraternal Benefit Society. It was founded in 1854 in St. Louis, Missouri, as the Cesko-Slovanske Podporujici Spolecnost (Czecho-Slovak Protective Society) by Czechoslovak immigrants who wanted to provide some security for their widows and children upon their death.
It also was and is a social outlet for people of similar background and interests. CSA has developed into a network for members helping each other with various needs in life.
Beside providing insurance products, CSA’s other purposes are to:
