Policyholders ami beneficiaries received from Metropolitan in 1937 almost $526,000,000-much of it in an hour of genuine need. Death claims were paid on 6,107 policiesinforceless than three months, and on 18,562 policies in force less than one year—dramatic proof of the value of life insurance. One could scarcely name a catastrophe which took human lives, in the United States or Canada, where funds provided by Metropolitan policies had not helped lighten the burden for afflicted families. Each day, visiting nurses representing the Metropolitan ministered to persons insured undet Industrial, Intermediate, and Group policies who were in need of skilled care. These nurses Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (4. MUTUAL COMPANY) made 3,766,210 calls during the year. Every half second during 1937, a Metropolitan book- lot, containing useful health information, was placed in somebody's hands. Each working day throughout the year, new Metror politan investments went into communities in various parts of the United States and Canada. These investments helped to create a demand for goods, aid realty values, give employment, and serve other modern social and ecwwmic needs. ^ There is more wo would like to tell you about our 1937 Report.
