‘•One Fact is Worth a Thousand
The “20 Payment Life Coupon An
unity” policy now offered by the Union
Central Life Insurance Company, re
moves every objection heretofore urged |
against life insurance.
Many have fancied in buying mere ;
‘‘estimates” or “illustrations” of a set
tlement to take place 20 years hence,
that they were making a sure provision
for old age, but on the day of settle- ?
ment facts take the place of fancy,
when too late the policy holder realizes
that he was buying theories only, as his
policy, which was his only title to the
money, contained no such agreement.
He is then old and poor and censures
his own credulity in listening to the
agent’s talk, instead of seeing that the
warranties were plainly recorded in the
policy. Every agent claims that his
company will pay the largest dividends
and live up to their estimates, and all
can show where rival companies do not.
Then would it not be wise for every
insurer to exact warranties specifically
recorded in the policy, as to what the
company will do, instead of theories as
to what the company might do?
It is just as important to be protected
against poverty in old age as against
Many men die young; many attain
old age in poverty and are forced to eat
the bread of dependence. One father '
can support a dozen children, but how
many children does it require to sup
port one father? Think of it—how can
you best protect your family, your
estate, and your own declining years?
Here is the answer, incontrovertable:
Buy $20,000 20 Payment Life Coupon
Policy. It will cost you $777.00 per
year. In 20 years, if you live, it will
have cost you $15,552. You then have
a paid up policy due at death, $20,000, ,
and 20 coupons for SB2O each, payable
annually, $16,400: or a gross paid-up
policy for $41,020; or your paid-up
policy due at death. $20,000, and the
privilege of commuting the coupons
into cash, SIO,OOO ; or commuting the
entire contract into cash, $18,280.
The contract guarantees to loan,
after five or more annual premiums
have been paid, as follows:
sth Year. 10th Year. 15th Year. 20th year.
$2,400. $5,380. $9,140. $18,280.
Or give extendended insurance or paid
up values, viz: After three years, paid
up policy for $3,000, and cash at ma
turity, 81,500, and as many proportional
parts all the way through, both in cash
and paid-up insurance, thus insuring
the policy-holder a ainst loss in any
event after three or more annual pre
The loan value available is of vital
importance, rendering it a “quick
asset” in time of financial stringency,
and should commend it to men of sa
gacity and business ability.
If money was obtained on real estate
mortgage, the borrower would have to
find a lender, pay his rate of interest,
attorney's fees for examining title, and
commission, possibly to a broker for
obtaining the loan, or go without it.
Think of what a convenience this con
tract would be.
