Dividends of 1915
THE regular dividends to be credited by the Mutual Bene
fit Life Insurance Company to its members on partici
pating premium paying Life and Endowment policies
upon their anniversaries in 1915 show a substantial increase
over the regular dividends credited in 1914. Such increase
results from the fact that it has become unnecessary for
the Company to retain for expenses and contingencies as
large a portion of that part of the stipulated premiums provi
ded therefor as has heretofore been retained for such pur
This is the third increase in the regular dividend scale of
the Mutual Benefit since the present premium rates and re
serve basis were adopted in 1900. The regular dividend
scale adopted in 1900 was continued through 1909. The in
creased scale adopted in 1912 has been continued up to this
time. The new increased sc aie for 1915 became effective
. Absolute Security !
Liberal Policy Contract !
Lowest Possible !
?N connection with the above announcement that dividends for 1915 on prem
ium paying life and endowment policies have been increased very substantial
ly over those payable on similar policies in 1914 it is worth while to call at
tention to the following record of the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company
covering the past seven years. To our knowledge the record is one which has not
been equaled by any other life insurance company.
In 1907 the Mutual Benefit still further liberalized, for both old and new
policies, its non-forfeiture system adopted in i 879 and modified in 1895 and 1900.
In 1908 the Company established a Suspended Mortality fund, which relieves
the Company of the necessity of changing its dividend scale to meet fluctuations
in deatji losses from year to year. J
lu 1909 the Company increased its dividend scale for 1910 and declared a
spacial dividend of S675,ooo.oo payable in 1910 in addition to the increased divi
dend? ? * . . ...????
In 1910 the Company established a Heal Estate Depreciation fund.
In 1911 it established a Security Fluctuation fund and made a further increase
in its dividend scale for 1912.
In 1912 the Company established higher reserves for policies issued prior to
1900, and provided that thereafter the loan and surrender values of such',policies
should be based upon such higher reserves.
In 1913 the Company declared a special dividend of ?861,000.00 in addition
to the regular dividend, and adopted an increased dividend scale for the year 1915.
In 1914 the Company declared a special dividend of $861,000.00 in addi
tion to the regular dividend, and adopted an increased dividend scale for the year
lt will be noted that the several increases in thc Mutual Benefit's dividend
scale and the declaration of special dividends have followed the establishment ot
contingency reserves computed upon a mathematical basis, and which, in the light
of-past experience, are amply sufficient to protect the Mutual Benefit againsi those
contingencies to which all life insurance companies are liable,
Tlife first concern of the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company has been the
absolute security of its outstanding policy contracts. Secondly, it has endeavored
to liberalize its policy contracts to the fullest possible extent and to furnish insur
ance thereunder at the lowest possible cost. Inasmuch as it has been established
tnat the earnings of the Company are sufficient to maintain the contingency re
serves upon the bases adopted and to provide for increased dividends,, such increase
has been made.
The Mutual Benefit confidently presents its claims to the patronage of the in
suring public upon the above record, which is unique in the history of life insur
