Fathers Plan, Fathers Protect

From the beginning, the Knights of Columbus has been a family-first organization.

Father McGivney strove to find Catholic men who could come together to protect and support the families in their communities who needed it most — including their own.

Today, the mission remains the same. And, as we celebrate Father’s Day here in the United States, it’s a great time to evaluate how we’re doing.

As we approach the midway point of 2014, the Knights of Columbus has more than $94 billion of life insurance in force, covering the lives of hundreds of thousands of our members and their families.

Knights across North America continue to trust their Order to protect them and see to it that their loved ones are well taken care of once they’re gone.

And the numbers keep increasing. The year 2013 marked the 13th consecutive year of increased new business life insurance sales.

More and more members are preparing to leave behind legacies of protection for their loved ones.

But how is each of us doing on an individual level? How well protected are our families? Are we certain that the insurance that we have in place is enough to cover their needs? Is it enough to allow those left behind to remain in their homes, to attend college, to continue to live the lives they’re accustomed to? Would we even know how to begin calculating and projecting those needs?

There are many moving pieces and parts that go into calculating just how much your life is worth in dollars and cents. You’re worth far more to your family than simply a number on a page, of course, but you do provide for them. And, if you’re no longer able to, you want to make sure that their lives are not further devastated by your absence.

These calculations and determinations are not ones that you need to make on your own. You have a dedicated, well-trained, professional brother Knight field agent who can help you identify what you need to do in order to adequately protect your family.

The Knights of Columbus provides members a comprehensive, complimentary needs analysis titled “Profiles & Forecaster,” a proven industry tool that will help you determine your needs.

Your agent will perform this custom analysis for you and your family absolutely free.

It’s a fraternal benefit that costs you nothing, but could tell you a lot. The Profiles & Forecaster analysis will help you identify surpluses and shortages, insurance and income replacement needs, final expenses and more.

How could you turn down a free comprehensive analysis from one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies?” Why would you pass up on a complete review from North America’s most highly rated life insurer?*

Helping your family to prepare for life without you is one of the most selfless actions you can take.

So, this Father’s Day, as your family shows you how much they love you and how much you mean to them, show them how much they mean to you. Make an appointment with your field agent for your custom analysis and begin to build an insurance portfolio that will guarantee their protection after you’re gone.
