Fraternal Involvement of Field Agents
Our members will find it comforting to know that Knights of Columbus Field Agents are integrally involved in Fraternal Benefits to the order, in addition to the obvious discipline of providing the insurance products.
My primary role as an Insurance Advisor is to inform each member and his family about the insurance benefits offered by the Knights of Columbus. Additionally, when a member or family member dies:

  • If desired, I will contact your attorney regarding your will.
  • I will help, if needed, with funeral arrangements.
  • I will notify the council.
  • If needed, I will help with financial matters.
  • I will assist with filing claims with all companies, if necessary.
  • I will assist in filing for Social Security and Veteran’s benefits, if necessary

Other Fraternal involvement comes through continuous contact with all council members at their homes and parishes. As Field Agents for the order we are responsible to help the councils grow in membership. We attend weekday and Sunday masses at our assigned parishes to meet new Catholic families and invite them to share in the benefits of our order. We also meet with the parish priests to assist them in understanding all of the benefits available to their parish through the Knights of Columbus. Some members call on us to assist in banking matters or needs for professional service referrals. Many hours are spent providing service to current policies in force, making sure beneficiaries and dividends are up to date and best utilized for the member’s policy. 

As Field Agents we are responsible for all of our own marketing, business decisions, and related costs. We are not employees of the Supreme Office we are independent contractors licensed and appointed by the Knights of Columbus to sell insurance for the order and thus comply with all the Federal and State regulations required. We spend many hours in professional development and ongoing classes in ethics and higher levels of insurance knowledge to better serve our membership.

I personally enjoy every aspect of the work as a Field Agent for the Knights of Columbus. Close involvement with Catholic families, evangelizing, and supporting the mission of our church to bring about Christ’s Kingdom here on earth are all in the very fabric of my being. This work for me is a calling and a vocation; it is a privilege to be of service to you!

Let me know what I can do for you.
