Knights of Columbus Insurance
Since our founding in 1882, the primary mission of the Knights of Columbus has been to protect Catholic families from the financial ruin caused by the death of the breadwinner. For this reason we were founded as a fraternal benefit society for Catholic men.
In the beginning, Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney and his fellow Knights "passed the hat" to benefit the widows and orphans in the event of a member's death. There was also a benefit available in the event of sickness which prevented a member from working to support his family.
From that humble start, the Order has grown to include top-rated life insurance, disability income insurance, long-term care insurance, and retirement annuities.
With more than $85 billion of insurance in-force and more than 1,400 full-time professional field agents serving our members and their families, we are proudly fulfilling Fr. McGivney's vision – protecting Catholic families with high-quality insurance. In fact, there is no more highly rated insurer in North America than the Knights of Columbus.
The best way to learn about our products and how they can benefit you and your family is by arranging a visit with your local field agent and keeping in touch with him as your needs change and our product line grows. Your agent can help you analyze your current financial situation, custom design an insurance program to meet your current needs, help you plan for the future, and explain the many fraternal benefits that come with membership. Below is a listing of our field agents and their contact information, including the councils they serve. If you are unsure of your council number, or do not see it listed, please call our Agency Office at (781) 769-3277.
