Hospice of Southern Illinois would request to be informed of any bequest so that we may realize the full benefit and give the appropriate recognition.
- Life Insurance – An individual may designate Hospice of Southern Illinois as the beneficiary or owner of a life insurance policy. Upon the death of the insured, Hospice of Southern Illinois will receive the face amount of the policy.
