Knights of Columbus Reviews and Customer Comments

"We have had life insurance policies for our kids and i for approx. 8 yrs. Not real big but enough to give a very nice funeral and burial. In 2014 we lost our 20 yr. old diabetic son.I don't remember exact time frames as this was a shock and all a blurr. Our knights agent was on it right away. He filled everything out with us at our home and all we did was sign. We received our money within a few weeks.We were Extremely satisfied and thankful."

"My dad had a life insurance policy and an IRA. Getting this money is like pulling teeth I was working with one agent who had all my info. and claimed he had sent it off he did not. Apparently, the death certificate and notarized documents both of which I paid for mind you disappeared along with the agent The new agent had me fill out all the papers again in addition to having to provide another death certificateand told me the check should be here within 5-7 business days. I called them on day 9 without a check in sight. They checked on the status of the claim and told me that a document was missing so I had to sign that document and send it back to them that was yesterday. I'm hoping it comes sometime soon. My dad had a life insurance policy on my son that my financial advisor had told me was a good deal and to keep it. I'm cashing it out because this whole process has been a nightmare and I don't want to give them one penny out of my pocket for anything My dad's AARP policy was paid out within a week or two of his death I have been working on the K of C policy and IRA for almost 3 months This is ridiculous. My dad was an active knight was a Grand Knight and a State Deputy and trust me....he is turning over in his grave."

"My brother-in-law recruited me into the Knights of Columbus. At the time I had no idea they sold insurance. I took out 10,000 policies for my wife and I when I joined. I work with teens and know three that became essentially uninsurable when they developed type II diabetes. When my children were born, I purchased a 10K whole life for each of them. The cost was under 6.00month and it came with a guaranteed purchase rider with seven options to purchase additional insurance from age 21-40. Unfortunately, my 30-year old daughter has become uninsurable due to cancer. As far as the rates go, my Prudential agent called me to do a review when my first child was born. When I told him I was a Knight, he said there was no way he could come close to matching what they offered. The only negative aspect of the Knights is you have to call the office to get the cash value of the policy. They do not send annual statements and there is no web portal."

"I purchased a term whole life insurance policy for each kid. Why They're young and healthy and if they're under age 18, no blood draws. The whole life must be paid every quarter and AFTER 20 YEARS, it doesn't have to be paid anymore but still acquires cash benefits. If you CASH OUT the whole life, the money you get for it is very little so don't expect to get 50,000 for a 50,000 policy. The cash out is something like 5%. A term policy can be converted to a whole life when it's time to renew AND blood work doesn't have to be done to do the conversion. NICE. I have a college kid and a acquaintance told me to get life insurance on my student because college loans must be paid back, Even if the student has passed away. As morbid as it sounds, i never thought of that. I feel the costs of these policies are very reasonable and when the kids are old enough, they can take over the payments."

"I wonder if those who are dissatisfied can blame it on a poor agent - or not understanding what they were buying. We had been taken in by a bad agent from another company so I did a quick study of life insurance policies. I used to laugh because one of our agents, who was with us for about 35 years, did not know a lot when he began. I would often tell him when he was wrong about something. He would always check it out and really did learn. By the time he retired he was a very knowledgeable agent. I used to laugh that I was the one who trained him I don't think anyone should take it for granted that an agent always knows what he is talking about. If you don't know or understand, check it out. So many resources are available."
