YOUR FIRST MONTH COSTS ONLY $1 Send for free facts Unbelievable but true. You can actually get from $1,000 to $12,000 of life insurance (depending on your age) without taking a physical examination if your application is approved. Even if you are 85 years old, there's no physical examination to take! You get whole life insurance—the kind that builds cash values after a few years. Cash value that's like money in the bank. Cash values that you can accumulate over the years as an estate for your family. Or that you can borrow later, if the need arises. And here's an important point for people who have had insurance for years. Chances are that inflation has made the face value of your life insurance worth much less today than when you bought it. Now you have a golden opportunity to replace that loss with inflation-fighting insurance that builds cash value without taking any qualifying physical exam! The cost is low. JFor example, at age 20, premium payments are only $5.60 a month for $4,000 of insurance. At age 40, the rate is only $5.00 a month for $2,000 coverage. At age 60, the cost is only $6.20 a month for $1,000 coverage. (Rates depend upon age and amount of insurance •elected). And, unlike term insurance, your low premium can never be increased as you grow older! Whatever coverage you choose, your first month costs only $1. Get all the facts free, without obligation.
