Welcome to the
Catholic United Financial family


On October 1, 2011, American Fraternal Union (AFU) became a part of Catholic United Financial. The merger has been approved by the supreme governing bodies of both societies. Click here for more background on the merger.

Catholic United, like AFU, has a rich ethnic heritage as a fraternal benefit society. From our beginnings in 1878, we have grown to be the largest fraternal benefit society based in Minnesota, with over 86,000 members and over $700 million in assets. We are honored to have our AFU brothers and sisters join the Catholic United family.

Rest assured that we will continue to service AFU certificates and pay their claims. AFU members will soon receive additional information about Catholic United in the mail. In the meantime, please feel free to call our Member Services area at 1-800-346-1289 with any service or claims questions about your AFU certificate.


Our Promise

To welcome all American Fraternal Union members into our Catholic United family and help them feel valued every step of the way.
