Those whose policies have lapsed; Those who have carried their policies to maturity; Those whose policies are'in force today. n T?i8T ?7riiCe t0 iU ?embe"hiP wa* brought about and is maintained by The Mutual Beneflt Life Insurance Company because ts basis for initiative in the field of life inaurance is the knowledge of sound principle. it has galned through a working experlence wh?ch has, trom the inception of the company, been uncompromisingly allied with the equity ot true mutuality. H ? ? " ?k.?!^8 plrincip,.e ,1^\,f0^id\ti0n URSn w,hich any fin?n-=i?l institution may serve the community most profitably,The Mutual Benefit Company contlnue. its leadershipin pro yidtng forms ofhfe insurance contracts that are In every sense themostfully protective to the indlvldual, wlthout mfrmgmg upon the rights of its membership as a whole. The follow? ing explanation makes clear the facts upon which the above statements are based. It shows clearly why and whereln Mutual Beneflt contracts are more protective than those or other compames. Mutual Benefit Life and Endowment Contracts Contain the Following Privileges Cash values, loan values, paid-up values and extended insurance, when only one premium has been paid. (If the reserve on the policy amounts to more than $10.) The company will loan up to the Hmit secured by the cash surrender value. i Loans may be made or repaid at any time, while the policy remain. in force. The extended insurance is automatic. The extended insurance may be sur rendered for its cash value. Quarterly or semi-annual payments in? crease the cash values. A month's grace is allowed without interest charge. The policy is incontestable after one year. Dividends are paid annually. The dividends, if left with the company, also participate in dividends. The annual dividends may be used to convert a life policy into an endowment, payable .at a definite and gradually de creasing age. If the policy is paid in installments, dividends are also paid with the instal ments certain. The company is purely mutual. Its. policyholders are the only profit sharers. Mutual Benefit Contracts Do Not Contain Any of the Following Restrictions The contract or application does not contain a "Good Health" clause, whlch may invalidate payment of the claim. The company doe. not reserve the right to withhold the payment of a surrender value until a certain period has elapsed after the reque.t of the in.ured. The contract does not reserve the right to withhold a loan for a stated period. If a loan is desired, the pollcy does not have to be as.igned to the company as security. If a loan ia made the insured does not have to give a note wlth a due date. Interest upon a loan is not charged in advance, except where a loan is made for the full amount secured by the cash value. The insured is not restricted as to resi? dence, travel or occupatlon. The insured I. not restricted a. to naval or milltary service. If tbe insured wishes to purchase addi tional insurance with his dividends another medical examination ia not required. There is no element of forfeiture lnvolved in dividends left with the company. In case of lapse there is no restrlction in the. contract as to when lt may be rein stated. There is no restrlction in the contract as to when proofa of loss after death of insured must be submitted. The company has never written tontme policies. The company has never written any so-called Gold Bond policies or speculative contracts. The company has never permitted new business to come to it at so high a cost as to put a burden upon its member? ship, nor has it had to pay the price of retracting its steps through mistakes of management. Because of theae things The Mutual Benettt Life Insurance Company ls widely known as the Policyholders' Company. c Brt*Xlw of_t4?8ewhln**/ ono of *"? leadlng insurance journals, in apeaking editorially of an Officer of The Mutual Benefit Company, went so far aa to say:? "To hlm llfe insurance meant everything that a noble imagination ever painted it, and to him belongs th* splendid credit of maklng it go farther than any man who ever gave to its atudy the devotion of a clear, unselflsh mind.'-"1 And because of these things, it is our pleaaure to announce that the fine old company, which we have the privilege to represent in this State, is not only enabled to maintain, but to increase, in 1910, its already high dividend scale. - "/??.:;,_ J.
