GIANT YARD SALE

Thank you to all the members who participated in the Giant Yard Sale. All together fifty four members of the Council played a role in this ambitious endeavor. The sale could have never happened without all of our help. Together we raised more than $6000 of which after expenses, $5000 went to our Parish. Needless to say Monsignor was very happy. Again thank you.
"It was a Great Event" - Fraternally, Alex K.

KELLER'S KORNER

Too many people have often relied on group term life insurance as their only safety net. Often, this insurance is an employee benefit provided at low or no cost. The existence of this coverage might convince someone that a personally owned life insurance policy is not necessary. Only have "through work" insurance doesn't work. This way of thinking should be a thing of the past for many reasons. Most forms of group life insurance are limited in amount, which may be tied to salary or some other benchmark. These numbers are often capped, and this cap may be dangerously low for your family's actual needs. In fact, without a detailed need analysis, any employer-provided coverage may be completedly unrelated to needs at death.
In addition, the amount of group insurance offered is almost always reduced, sometimes dramatically, when you retire. With the possibility of these changes on the horizon, you could one day find yourself without coveratge and if your health has changed (which it has and will as you age) you might also find yourself unable to secure individual protection.
While group life insurance can help, it does not replace the need for individually owned life insurance. I'll be happy to meet with you and provide a no-cost needs analysis so you'll know exactly where you stand.
