COMPILED BY
THE WEEKLY UNDERWRITER

In every respect the year 1916 was the greatest in The Prudential's history. All previous achievements were surpassed. New policy features were offered to the insuring public and the maximum of Prudential service and Prudential protection, prompt payments, absolute safety, all at the minimum of cost and at the lowest expense-rate, continued as the Company's firmly established policy.

It is a pleasure to quote the following items dealing with the record of The Prudential during 1916 and its financial condition at the close of the year: Assets

..over 432

Million Dollars Liabilities

...nearly 41034 Million Dollars

Payments to Policyholders since Organization,

plus amount held for their security. .. over 858 Million Dollars Paid-for Insurance Issued and Revived during 1916...

over 591 Million Dollars (Including Ordinary Insurance of more than $221,000,000) Increase in Paid-for Insurance in Force...... over 282 Million Dollars Real Estate Mortgages, consisting largely of farm loans.....

over 114 Million Dollars Paid Policyholders during 1916.

over 47 Million Dollars Dividends payable in 1917..

..... over 13 Million Dollars Paid to Policyholders or their beneficiaries $156,000 each business day in 1916 Paid an average of 537 death claims each business day in 1916

Nearly 15 Million Policies in Force, insuring over

3 BILLION 92 MILLION DOLLARS Beginning business in 1875, The Prudential has achieved results unequaled by any other company during so short a period of time

Following mutualization, about five million dollars was paid or credited in dividends to policyholders in 1916 on contracts which did not call for such payments. Over $5,400,000 was set aside for similar payments to policyholders during 1917. The remarkable figures shown above and this wonderful growth reflect

anew_the confidence the insuring public has in
The Prudential, and are a re-endorsement of its

aims, its achievements and its service.

LEADING FEATURES

The Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York is the oldest life company in America, having begun the issue of policies February 1, 1843. It has always been a leader among American companies; conservative, but abreast with the foremost in progressive methods of real merit. The aim of the management is “Pre-eminence in Benefits to Policyholders," rather than supremacy in size or in volume of business written.

The Company is especially noted to-day, as it was in the beginning, for its large annual dividends and its low net cost. Since 1906 it has issued only participating policies, on which it pays dividends annually, including a dividend at the end of the first year; after payment of the second year's premium every dividend is payable when apportioned, whether the accruing premium is paid or not. A postmortem dividend is payable on annual dividend policies, even in case of death before the end of the first year. The sum of $17,518,116.46 was paid to policyholders in dividends in 1916, while $20,435,398.77 has been set aside for dividends to be paid in 1917.

Cash, paid-up or extended insurance surrender values after three full years' premiums have been paid. Loans, at 6 per cent. interest, payable at the end of the policy year, are available at any time after three full years' premiums have been paid, even at the end of the first year,

Policies are free from restrictions as to occupation after one year and incontestable after two years. Free from restrictions as to military or naval service after one year, and, as to residence or travel, from date of issue,

Claims payable immediately on receipt of completed proof. Total payments to policyholders in 1916 amounted to $68,654,843.80, which was $6,748,758.97 more than was received from them in premiums.

Women are insured at the same rates as men.
