You suffered the misfortune of having your earning power stopped by illness or injury. You had to "take a bite" of your plan—perhaps a big bite, and you did have to draw income from your plan. Yet—you still may be eligible for a refund! In this case you will get back a percentage of net premiums you have paid less the amount of the benefits you have received. Thus your plan has given you protection, has furnished income when you needed it, and you still may be eligible for a refund! For information and professional advice on setting up your plan . . . CALL THE MAN WHO WILL HELP YOU PIAH at your County Farm Bureau Office You became the one man out of every three that statistics tell us will suffer a LONG-TERM disability before age 65! In this event you have probably been forced to "eat all of your apple". In other words—total disability from illness or injury has caused you to draw heavily from your plan to provide monthly income. In which case you will probably have no refund coming. But your plan has substituted for lost earning power and has provided income to avoid financial disaster!
