I am aura that ha carried a heavy insur

earnestly. "The. contractor has told ma

Tba company has Just declared a cash mortuary dividend on Policies over

claims on Policies over S years In force It adds 6 per cent ; to all death claims
on Policies, over I years In force, per cent., and an additional 1 per cent for
In addition to this the immediate benefits (payable during the six months
after date of Issue) oti adult Industrial Policies, excepting Term of Endowment,
issued during 1106 have been doubled. Certain increases have also been made
each year of duration. , Thus the dividend on claims under Policies over 10
years In force is 10 per cent; over 15 years, 15 per cent; oyer 10 years, 80 per
cent; over 15 years, 25 per cent; 1870 (the earliest issue), 17 per cent The
cost of this dividend payable during the current year Is approximately
ONE MILLION TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS. . ..').' r
In the benefits on infantile Endowment Policies during the first year. The
cost of these, which will operate as a dividend on all claims maturing during
the year, on the issue of thla year, is approximately
ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS.
These' dividends are over and above the dividend declared on industrial
Policies January 1 last, which was a quinquennial cash dividend, amounting to
about 10 per cent, of the premium for a year, declared on all Policies (except
Increasing Life and Endowment Policies, which by their terms carry benefits
increasing yearly after the third year) issued in 1881, 1886, 1891, 1896 and
1901. The amount appropriated for this dividend was about
SIX HUNDRED AND EIGHTY -TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS. .. .
' . Thus the Company THIS YEAR has declared and IS PAYING dividends on Industrial Policies amounting to
Over Two Millions of Dollars
Every one of these Policies is non-partlclpatlng, promising a definite sunv only at maturity, without dividends. The payment of the dividend la
PURELY VOLUNTARY. Dividends have been actually paid without promise for many years by the Metropolitan. The total amount now approximates
In 18 years.
Ten Millions of Dollars
Included among these Policies are hundreds of thousands of Policies issued by other companies and assumed by the Metropolitan. ,
Intermediate Policies ior 8500 each have been issued by the Metropolitan
for 10 years past. They are Policies designed for such of the Industrial classes as
can afford to pay annual, semi-annual or quarterly premiums instead of weekly.
As the plan was new there was no actuarial experience to guide the Company as
to the mortality cost. The Company promised to pay, if earned, dividends
after five years and annually thereafter. This year the Compan set aside ovet
Six Hundred and' Twenty Thousand Dollars
to be paid In dividends on Intermediate Policies during 1906. Payment of these dividends has brought the cost of the Policies very nearly down to the non
partlclpatlng rates of this and other Ordinary companies. ...".
- The Ordinary Policies issued by the Company for the last 15 years have
been practically all written on non-partlclpatlng rates plain business contracts
for plain business men, which tell their whole story upon their face, leave noth
ing to the imagination, borrow nothing from hope, require definite conditions
and make definite promises in dollars and cents. The rates, therefore, are low.
The Company has in force, however, a considerable, though, compared with its
total business, a very small percentage of participating business. Some of the
Policies were Issued on annual dividend and some on deferred dividend plans
many of the latter having been issued by other companies and assumed by the
Metropolitan. Upon these Policies the Company has this year declared and ia
paying a dividend equal to the excess premium charged by mutual rates over
the non-partlclpatlng rates charged on its current business. The amount of
thla dividend is nearly TWO HUKDKED THOUSAND DOLLARS, which Is a
voluntary extra dividend. j-
Thus.the amount of dividends the METROPOLITAN LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY is paying this year is nearly
n Three KYUIIions of Dollars
