The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that lor Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
'Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life has paid since ite organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, $51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
