Members who have attained the actual age of 65 years and who have been members of the Order for 25 consecutive years shall be designated as honorary members.

The honorary member is exempt from general fund charges, except payment of an amount equal to the sum of Supreme Council assessments and the annual levies of your state council. Because of this annual payment requirement, a paper membership card must be issued by the financial secretary on a yearly basis. The honorary member must present that paper card to gain access to Knights of Columbus functions.
