The dividend is the,second regular one on NSLI policies—the first was paid this year—and will total 180 million dollars. Two special dividends - also have been paid. The four total nearly fqjir billion dollars'. Payments to individual policy holders, the V. A. said, will be made from 30 to r 40 days after the anniversary date of the policy. That's the d,ate the policy first went into effect. ' eligible, the policyholder must have paid premiums for any three or more months between the anniversary date of his policy In 1952 and the same date InaSSI. The method of payment will be he same as this year unless the policyholder Informs the V. A. he vaiils . to be paid differently, by vriting to the V. • A. office to which he pays premiums. If he holds a term policy, he can get, the 'dividend In cash or he may tell'thW.

Most term policies are for $10,000. There are nearly 3,000 rales for dividend - payments for permanent plan policies, the V. A. said, and It's Impossible to give a simple formula on them.
