Financial obligations for Freemasons
One of my relatives works in a Freemason retirement home despite not being one himself. I've been interested in joining for a while, especially after researching about it. One thing I couldn't find that my relative mentioned was that, upon joining, once you pass, do a majority of the assets go to the Freemasons? I'm just a little confused about this, but also concerned. As as outsider looking in, I can understand if an organization is very impactful in my life, it's customary to return the favor. I don't mind that, but is that true, a majority of my assets go to the Freemasons rather than whoever I choose to pass them onto? I've been told this is false by another relative who is a Freemason but I've been a member of a Fraternity and during recruitment I can understand if there are portions that aren't explicitly said but this is one of my only concerns before reaching out to a lodge in my area.
