Insurance for Young Knights

10/2/2015

Protecting our families from financial ruin is not just a task for the oldest among us. Whether they are 18 or 81, all Knights should be thinking about how they can and should protect the ones they love.

But young Knights are different. Their needs are different. Their priorities are different. Their preferences are different. Their budgets are different.

That’s why we’ve designed our Young Adult Insurance program for Knights and their spouses, ages 18-29. The program maximizes flexibility, convenience and affordability to enable young brother Knights, and their spouses, to get the coverage they need. Through it, members can receive an annual renewable term life insurance policy that will help protect their families and their futures.*

Many of you may think you’re simply too young for life insurance, but you’re not. Here’s why:

1. You’ve got debt.

Maybe you have student loans. Maybe you’re paying off your car. Maybe you have some credit card debt.

Not all debts are forgiven when you die. Depending on the type of debt, the state you live in, and whether or not the loan is cosigned, your family could be responsible for that money. And, even if you don’t have any debt, what about funeral costs and final expenses?

2. You want to protect the ones you love.

You don’t want your family to be saddled with your debt if something happens to you. So why not make sure they won’t be? It's easy. It's affordable. It's what Knights do.

3. You’re on a budget.

Young Adult Insurance is affordable. How affordable? Very affordable. The amount you pay is based on your age and medical condition, but you could get $25,000 of coverage for as little as $1 a week.

4. Your time is valuable.

Young Adult Insurance is quick and easy. It’s an annual, renewable term insurance product that you reevaluate and renew every year. It’s designed with Knights ages 18 through 29 in mind, to maximize affordability and flexibility.

5. You’re a Knight.

Our founder, Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney, started the Knights to protect Catholic families from financial devastation. Ever since, we’ve gone on to issue more than $99 billion of life insurance to members and their families. They trust us with this important task. As a Knight, you’ve got a dedicated agent — a brother Knight — to help you. Why not begin that relationship today?

6. You’re Catholic.

There’s an advantage to buying Catholic. You get the comfort of knowing that your money is going to a charitable organization that stands resolutely behind the Church and conducts its business in an unapologetically Catholic way, with strict rules on ethics and investments.

7. You won’t live forever.

We will all meet our end — hopefully not soon, of course! But what if it comes sooner than you expect? What will happen to those you love? Would you protect them if you could?
