Protecting Families for Generations

Our Strength

A Fortune 1000 company born beneath an altar.

The Knights of Columbus is one of the largest life insurers in North America, and the largest Catholic life insurer in the world. *


Nearly 24 brother Knight agents serve the 32,000 Knights within the state of Iowa.

Six numbers tell the story of Knights of Columbus strength:

In November of 2015, the Knights of Columbus surpassed $100 billion of life insurance in force.

Insurance in force is a calculation of the total amount of money owed to policy holders. Put differently, $105 billion of life insurance in force means that the Knights of Columbus has a $105 billion promise to members and their families. 

The Knights of Columbus manages $22 billion of assets from their international headquarters in New Haven, Connecticut.

The Knights of Columbus manages its assets in an ethical and responsible way. The Knights does not invest in companies that deal in: abortions, contraception, human cloning, embryonic stem cell research, for-profit health care that pays for any of the aforementioned, and pornography.

In 2015 alone, the Knights of Columbus distributed $875 million to members and their beneficiaries in benefits, claims, maturities, annuities and dividends.


The Knights of Columbus has more than 2 million active contracts in force. That means that hundreds of thousands of brother Knights have elected to help protect their families and their futures with the Knights of Columbus.

Despite a rough economic climate, the Knights of Columbus has experienced 17 consecutive years of growth.
