lt KAU Tin-: FOI,!. OW I IV G :
A lengthened experience baa demonstrated that tho rates of pri minni ordinarily charged
by life insurance companies aro from twenty ?fl ve to thirty per cent, in excess of what are ne?
cessary for a safo aud legitimate conduct of tho business. In other words, carefully and
prudently-managed companies charging "mutual" ratea havo been aldo to return to their
policy-holders from 25 to 30 per cont, of the amount charged for premiums.
When lifo inauiancecompanies wore lirtt organized, reliability of the data upon which pre?
miums were constructed had not undergone tett of experience * It waa thought, therefore, no
moro tliau common prudeuco to adopt a tcalu of premiums which would, in any event, meet
all tho presumed and unforceeen contine,oncie ? of the business. Aa long aa tho matter waa
involved in somo doubt, it was better to fix tho rate too high than to incur tho riak uf mak?
ing it too low; because, in the former cuae, tho erior could bc easily remedied, at leaat in
part, by returning to tue policy-holders, at ce rtain intervals, auch portion of tn* premium
charged aa waa found necessary lor the purposes of tho business aud tho comp .o security
of the company. Fxpexionco, however, having batialaeto. ily demonstrated that these ratea
aro excessive, what poaaiblo excuse can the re be for maintaining them?
Availiug themselves of this exp?rience, the Directora ai:d Managers of the Universal Lifo
Insurance Company, at ita organization, adopted a seale of premiums in accordance there?
with, mid which has proved lo bo fail and adequate, and all that waa necessary to meet tho
requirements of tho business. These premiums are about twenty-five per ceut. lower than
those charge by mutual corapaneia. It also appeared, iutumuch BS tho ratea BO established
were as noar as could possibly bc determined fair tates, and not in excess of what insurance
has Previously coat tho policy-holders in mutual companies,'that any profits arising from
prudent management justly and prop? i ly belonged to the stockholders of the company, for
tho risk incurred by them in undertaking tho business.
Experience bas shown that there are sources of profit in tia predice of tho business which
theory will not admit of being considered as elements in ibu calculation of the premiums.
Thcso results form a saving in the mortality of thc- n.embi rs of a company owing to tho me?
dical selection of good livi a, a gain in interest on lite invistan uta id the company over that
assumed in thc calculation of ita premiums, the- profits derivable trem? the lapsing and sur?
render of policies by the members, and from otlu r minor eourci s. Profits from these sources,
in a company possessed of a capita' of ?200,000, and doiug a fair amount of busiucs?, would
givo to thc stockholders dividends largely in exe es s vf what were counted on by tho Directors
Of tho Cnivorsal at tho time of its organization. They have, therefore, determined to divide
among tho policy-holders of tho cc>tnpauy a large pint of boo i roiita accruing ire nt thc
sources named, all of which have heretofore bein divided among thc stockholders;
Tho plan adopted for auch division ia as follows: Every person who may hereafter insure
with tho Universal will, for the purposes of division, he treated aa a stockholde r to extent fd
ono annual premium upon his policy; and will abare in the profits of tho company to precisely
sanio exteut as a stockholder owning an iqual amount of tho capital stock.
By thia system of insurance, original with the Uuivorral, the policy-holder secured the fo!
lowmg import ant advautaget : .
li Insurance at tho regular "stork" rates, ri quirir-g a primary outlay c?f abonl twenty to
thirty poicont, lesa than that charged by mutual cm paniea, anet which ia equivalent toa
yearly "dividend" paid in i cl vance of that amount on mutual rates, 'ihia low cost of insur?
ance is worthy of attention. Since its organization, this company hf.a received in premiums
from its policy-holders the bum bi fl,617.Otto. To'effect Ibo Hame h mount of instil alice iii a
mutual company would have cost tin ni an initial outlay of ii GOO.i LO By allowing its policy?
holders to retain, in their own peasesMun, thia exceas vt N83,0C0, the Universal baa virtually
paid them a "dividend" of $483,(00 and paid lt, too, in advance, instead of ut the end cf one
or moro years. It iu impossible to fii.d any i UP pie cf a mutual company furnishing i li eur
anco at eo low a coat hy reluming lu poiic; Ind it-is au i-qual amount upon similar receipts.
2. Participation in the legitimate profits of the company. upi i? -. plan which secures to thc
policy-holders the same treatment which directora and stockholm !* award te? I hi nisei vee.
This system of participation, in coi nrction with the h w "aleck" rates ol' premiums, must
necessarily acenre to tho policy-holders every poeeih'o advantage to he derived from prudent
and caroful management.
Tho low ratea of premium con pel economy, and, independent cf part ici pal ion, gua rn nice
to tho policy-holder his iiisnrauct) at a rate w hieb is not in exceas of tl.-- cost in well managed
mutual companies; whilo, by the proposed plan ol participation in what ihav be considered
tho legitimate profits of tho buaiuesa, the coat will bo * till further diminish! el.
Ihn? by tho combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation in profits,
it ia confidently believed tho Universal Lifo Insurance Company oficr* insurance at its lowest
Thoso of thc existing policy-holders who desire to participate in tho profits under the new
plan can elo so by making application lo tho head ofllco, or to.anv agents of the company.
Tho company is in a Houtid financial condition. Ratio of assets to liabilities 130 to 100.
