A Message From KSKJ Life’s CEO
In 2019 KSKJ Life celebrated 125 years of service. This is an extraordinary milestone for any organization, and as a member-owned not-for-profit we share the pride of this accomplishment with all our members (insurance and annuity policy holders), families, agents, board of directors, and home office staff.
Over the past 125 years our members fought in wars, suffered genocide, scrapped through depressions, and battled natural disasters. We have celebrated the end of those struggles and beyond – births, baptisms, weddings, and much more.
As an organization, KSKJ Life has endured for more than a century and a quarter for many reasons, including:
- A commitment to our members, core values and faith
- Calm, conservative yet innovative approach to sales and investments and operations
- Managing the present moment while navigating towards a vision for the future
The recent global events that have affected our health and finances are incredibly challenging for everyone. There is a good deal of fear and unknown – how bad will things get? How will it affect me, my family, and my community? How long will it last?
As a stakeholder in KSKJ Life this is one time in the midst of uncertainty that you can take a deep breath with confidence because you made a smart, key decision to do business with KSKJ Life. We have a proven track record of stability and growth and stand by the promise we make to every insurance and annuity policy we have issued.
When this storm passes, there will inevitably be another. While it may be difficult to predict where the storm will come from, rest assured that you have security in the policy you own with us. Please contact us with any questions about your policy or to request information on additional financial products that can help provide security for you and your loved ones.
Our best wishes and prayers to all of you for good personal and financial health this spring, and for a blessed Easter with your loved ones.
– Tony Mravle, CEO
A Message From KSKJ Life’s Spiritual Advisor
Greetings to KSKJ Life Members. For sure this is a difficult time for all. In the book of Ecclesiastes, we read there is a time for everything…. This is a time for Trust, Faith and Prayer. We want things to go back to the way they were. We must trust that God told us He would be with us forever.
St. Vincent de Paul said, “The hand of God is always outstretched for those who wish to clasp it.”
A simple prayer in these most challenging times…… Lord, what would I ever do without your support? Take my hand and lead me because so often I don’t know where to go or what to do.
Prayers for all KSKJ members at Mass that is said every day at the Vincentian parish Mission Center in Kansas City.
– Reverend Richard Gielow

We are open for Business
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, we want to assure you that we are open for business and still able to serve you.
As you may have already heard in the news, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has announced a statewide stay-at-home order effective March 21, 2020 aimed at stopping the spread of the Coronavirus. The order does not include essential businesses such as pharmacies, gas stations, banks and grocery stores. Financial institutions, such as insurance companies related to markets are also considered essential, so KSKJ Life will remain open.
We have recently implemented procedures which allow for employees to work from home as needed. We are doing all that we can to ensure the health of our employees and to maintain a safe working environment. Because onsite staff has been reduced to accommodate the required social distancing, you may experience longer than normal call wait times, but our commitment to you and to our personalized service remain unchanged.
KSKJ Life is committed to doing what we can to be supportive and responsive, and we will continue to keep you informed as things develop.
Please continue to access our website or portals available to you as an additional resource or you may contact our main office number at (800) 843-5755.
Thank you for your continued support. Our prayers are with you and your loved ones for continued health and safety.

Fraternal Activities and Meetings
Due to the growing concern about the coronavirus and corresponding CDC guidelines, we are halting all in-person KSKJ Life events until further notice. This includes lodge meetings, social events, athletic tournaments and any other KSKJ event where people would gather. The most important factor is to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible. Please check our Activities page and our social media pages for event updates and announcements regarding rescheduling.
