Since the Knights of Columbus were founded in 1882, the primary mission of the Knights 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.

As a Knight of Columbus, you have access to these top quality insurance products. In fact, no insurer in North America is more highly rated than the Knights of Columbus. As an organization founded to protect the well being of Catholic families, the Knights of Columbus have continued to take that mission seriously for more than 130 years. Generations of Catholics have counted on the Knights, and in an increasingly turbulent world, you can trust the Knights of Columbus to securely protect the future of your loved ones and to be there when you need us most – all at very affordable rates.
