The Life and Legacy of Father Micheal J. McGivney

At the first memorial service for deceased Knights, this tribute was accorded him:

“He was a man of the people. He was zealous of the people’s welfare, and all the kindliness of his priestly soul asserted itself more strongly in his unceasing effort for the betterment of their condition… Oh, Reverend Founder… that act alone which gave life to the Knights of Columbus has surely secured for thee everlasting joy and eternal peace.”

Knights of Columbus Insurance

Unlike many fraternal organizations, Knights of Columbus does not require the purchase of insurance for membership. It is voluntary. However, a man must be a member before he is eligible to purchase insurance for himself or family.

Since our founding in 1882, the primary mission of the Knights of Columbus has been to protect families from the financial ruin caused by the death of the breadwinner. In the beginning, Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney and his fellow Knights “passed the hat” to benefit widows and orphans.

From that humble start, the Order has grown to include top-rated life insurance, long-term care insurance and retirement products joining the elite ranks of the most highly rated insurance companies in North America. With more than $92 billion of insurance in force and a full-time field force of more than 1,400 serving our members and their families, we are proudly fulfilling Fr. McGivney’s vision.

As a Knights of Columbus Insurance certificate holder, there are two free fraternal benefit programs exclusive to Knights and their families: Family Fraternal Beneift Program and Orphan Fraternal Benefit Program.

Family Fraternal Benefit Program makes available to eligible family members five distinct types of assistance. To be eligible, the member must be in good standing with his Council and either he or his wife must be insured under a Knights of Columbus certificate requiring an annual premium of at least $150, or providing at least $5,000 permanent life insurance coverage.

Orphan Fraternal Benefit Program started at the founding of the Order. Knights of Columbus has always been concerned about the welfare of the child who loses both parents. These benefits are designed to reach out to families, especially at times when they are devasted by the intrusion of untimely death, whether of parent or offspring, or by health condition of child. With this program, the child must be under 19 years of age and be insured by an individual Knights of Columbus certificate.

The best way to learn about our products is by arranging a visit with a local field agent. Your agent can custom design an insurance program to meet your current needs, help you plan for the future or simply explain the many fraternal benefits that come with membership.

What the Order Stands for Today

By their deeds shall you know them.

The Knights of Columbus is very much a grassroots organization. The international body does not dictate the charitable programs and activities of local councils. Rather, local councils develop the programs they believe will best serve the needs of their communities.

Who May be a Member?

Open to any practical Catholic man in union with the Holy See

Membership is the Knights of Columbus is open to any practical Catholic man in union with the Holy See who is not less than 18 years of age on his last birthday. A practical Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the Precepts of the Catholic Church.

As fathers and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do, it’s part of who we are. To that end, Knights of Columbus councils offer programs that strengthen family and marital bonds by holding numerous family focused events, including the “Family of the Month” program that honors outstanding families. Most importantly, as Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to Knights and their families whenever needed.

The importance of helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders is also a huge focus of the Order.
