KELLERS KORNER

Think you are too old for Coverage? Maybe not........
You are never too young or too old to consider purchasing life insurance. If you have a financial need for coverage, or will in the future, a permanent life insurance policy can be just the thing you need. When you are young and presumably healthy, coverage will be very inexpensive when compared to purchasing the same policy when you are older.
If you've put off purchasing coverage, or you realize that you may need additional insurance ,the Order may still be able to help you, even if other companies cannot. In fact, in 2012, the issue age of our permanent life insurance products was extended to age 80. And in 2014 the issue age on term insurance was extended to 70. Naturally, your health and whether or not you smoke will be taken into consideration, so underwriting standards for risk and age apply. But, the extension is a great blessing for me - and it could be for you too. Now I can help members that I couldn't help before. Are you or one of your Brother Knights one of those members? Whether you are 18 or 80, the Knights of Columbus has products that will work for you and your family. I look forward to discussing coverage with you.

ABORTIONS

Abortion is not just another political issue but in reality a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths. Abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale. We need to end the political manipulation of Catholics by abortion advocates. It is time to end the entanglement of catholic people with abortion killing, it is time to stop creating excuses for voting for pro-abortion politicians.


NOV. 6TH - ELECTION DAY - VOTE
