Knights of Columbus Insurance

Brother Knights & families,

Another eventful year for Knights of Columbus Insurance and our Agency here in North Dakota and throughout the Order. LuAnn and I have been proud to serve our members and families for 3 years now, and time keeps marching on. Our "new" agents are not so new anymore and getting some seasoning which is good, and we plan to bring in some new men this year to add to our team and to help to serve you better.

Knights of Columbus Insurance for 2016 was another banner year for our Life Insurance division, and now it has been 16 consecutive years of growth in Life Insurance business, despite a rough economic climate. This is definitely bucking the industry trend, and is a testimony to our Field Force and our loyal members who continue to look to us to protect their families. As a company, we issued over $8.5 Billion of Life Insurance in 2016, our agency here in North Dakota added just under $100 million of coverage to that total. These are big numbers. But what does these numbers really represent? The numbers mean that perhaps some children of a deceased member will be able to go to college, a family farm will stay in the family, or maybe just that a widow may be able to live with dignity. This was the goal of our founder, the Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney, and we are tasked to carry on his vision.

We at the Knights of Columbus continue to provide coverage for our members, and doing so in a conscientious manner. In March, the Ethisphere Institute designated the Knights of Columbus as a "Worlds Most Ethical Company", for 2016, and honor the order earned for the third consecutive year. Our finances continue to be rock solid, as we again have the highest ratings offered by A.M. Best (A++) now for 41 consecutive years. In their words, "Through conservative management, active fraternalism, and high quality insurance products, the fraternal society has grown to a multi-billion dollar international insurance organization."

So, we continue to be blessed with some of the best products in the industry, having some fine men in our Field Agents to offer them to the members of the largest Catholic fraternal service organization in the world. What a great combination. We look forward to visiting with you again this year at our convention, and thank you for supporting Knights of Columbus Insurance.

Sincerely,

Pat Dolan, General Agent
