If you haven't visited the Knights of Columbus Web site in a while, I encourage you to do so the next time you're online. There are many exciting features on there (click on the "button"  in the links column "Additional Insurance Information at the State Web Site", but there are two that I wish to make you especially aware of.

The first is our member testimonial area, titled "Stages of Life." In this multi-media area, six "real-life" stories are told - stories of people at different stages of their lives. Chances are one of them will sound a lot like you. These people talk about how their Knights of Columbus agent took the time to demonstrate for them the need for life insurance in their lives. I'll be happy to do that for you and your family as well.

The second is our Life Insurance Calculator. This handy, easy-to-use online tool was developed to allow you, in about 15-20 minutes to estimate the amount of life insurance coverage you need. The information you'll be asked to provide will be basic (the type most folks would tend to have at their fingertip), and secure (it's intended to be used solely for the purposes of the online calculator - the Order won't capture it or share it with anyone, including me!).

I stress that the number you'll receive is an estimate, based on the basic information you provide. It's not intended to take the place of the free, professional needs analysis that I'll be happy to provide for you and your family. Give me a call - I'd like to meet with you.

The following short articles bring "home" the necessity of having adequate insurance coverage.
If you're like me, you derive great joy from your children. It's a great feeling when a teacher, coach or fellow parent compliments you on your child.

We all know that raising children these days is no easy task, especially when the values we're trying to instill in them - concern for others, accepting responsibility for their actions, saving money rather than spending it - seem to run counter to what society is trying to teach them. Yet these are exactly the values that tend to draw compliments from teachers, coaches and fellow parents.

We also know that the best way to teach is by example. If you carry enough life insurance to protect your family - and if you share, with those of your children old enough to understand, why that's important, you're exhibiting and imparting many of the values you hope your children will absorb.

You'll show them by example that you love them and are concerned about their welfare. You'll show them that you take your responsibility to provide for your family seriously, and that you want to make sure they're provided for even if you're not around. And you'll show them that investing money in your life insurance protection is more important than the new set of golf clubs you might want, the newest and best home theater system you've had your eye on, or whatever else you might be sacrificing to pay the premiums.

Sure, they'll probably roll their eyes at you as you're explaining this, and they'll certainly moan and groan if they can't get the newest CD, video game or piece of clothing. But they learn from what you do - just like they learn from what you don't do. What lessons do you want to teach them?

I want to meet with you to review your existing coverage. Based upon that review, and on the comprehensive needs analysis that I'll perform, free of charge, we'll be able to put a plan in place that will meet your needs, goals and budget. Give me a call.
Have you ever heard the expression "lazy days of summer?" While the hot weather may encourage a slower paced life, in many ways summer can be the busiest time of the year. Especially for parents with school-aged children. And being busy, it's easy to forget about such things as reviewing your life insurance  coverage.

The purpose of this column is to encourage you to meet with me before the end of the summer. Whether or not you have life insurance with the Order, I'll be happy to meet with you and make sure your coverage continues to meet your needs and goals. If you've had any life changes since you last bought a policy (new home, new child, new job, etc.), chances are your life insurance needs to be updated. I'll work with you to make sure you have the coverage you need at a price you can afford.

Call me to set up an appointment, When we meet, you'll discover that time spent with your Knights of Columbus agent is time well spent. But, make the call today. because summer  will come and go before you know it.

The Knights of Columbus Insurance is the best there is.

Brother John Herron, of Maurice J. McDonough Council, has been appointed Fraternal Insurance Advisor for the Archbishop Neale Council effective 1 January 2012. Additionally, John is assigned the other three councils in Charles County.

John joined our order during the later part of the 2011 fraternal year. He has taken the first three degrees of membership. During his initial fraternal insurance review he was told that the territory covering Charles County was available to an acceptable candidate. After successfully interviewing with the Canter agency his name and qualifications were submitted to the Supreme Office for ultimate approval. Upon approval he enrolled in a Maryland state license preparation class, passed the licensing exam and then received a license to market Knights of Columbus health and life products to members. As a Knights of Columbus field agent John has agreed to limit his employment and insurance enterprise in servicing and focusing on the needs of Brother Knights and their families. 

John is married to Susan and they are members of St. Joseph's parish in Pomfret. John is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Business BBA 1982 and he holds a Masters degree from the University of Maryland University College MGA 1995.

John is looking forward to his new role in helping brother Knights and their families. He has come to a greater awareness of the quality, stability and resourcefulness of Knights of Columbus insurance products for its members. If you have any insurance needs John wants to help you and let you know what YOUR insurance company has to offer. As the insurance representative John is charged with meeting each and every member in his councils at least once a year to assess a needs analysis. Additionally he is our representative that is best positioned to render assistance to our families when we decease and are called away from this life. 

Please allow John the opportunity to at least meet with you and your spouse when he calls upon your family. 

John can be reached at john.herron@kofc.org or at 301-643-8103.

Have you insured your most valuable asset?
Is your income protected if you become too sick or hurt
to work? Your ability to work and earn an income is
your most valuable asset. Yet a disability could prevent
you from earning that income. Just one year of a
disability could eliminate your savings.

I would like to show you that Income Armor, an
individual disability income insurance product from the
Knights of Columbus, should be a key part of your
overall financial plan and family’s protection.

If you become too sick or hurt to work, Income Armor provides monthly benefits to help you meet living
expenses and maintain your standard of living. Your
monthly benefits help you pay your mortgage and other
monthly bills, and help your savings and retirement
assets remain intact.

In short, if you have a job and don’t have a way to
protect that paycheck, you should seriously consider
Income Armor today. I look forward to meeting with
