WHILE ipresenting our Annual Statement showing Assets
of $2,388,647,6362 Billion, 388 Million Dollars representing
savings and investments of 25 million people in the United States and
Canada, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company desires to make clear
what a life (insurance company can do, what it should do and what,
so far, it has been unable to do toward meeting what have been called
the five great hazards of life:
Death
which may come early, be
fore one's clependents have
been provided for.
Accident
always sudden and often
causing lessened earning
power.
i
Sickness
which may cause want as
well as suffering.
Dependent Old Age
which must seek charity if
self - support is" no longer
possible.
Unemployment
which may bring distress to
others in addition to the
one unemployed.
Annuities for old age, protection-
in case of death,
accident or sickness al
most every financial re
quirement can now be met
by insurance. Only one

and that only because legis
lation permitting it has so
far been refused. The day
must come when every
family can and will plan to
meet every one of the five
great hazards so that none
of its members will ever face
the need of charity.
The United States and
Canada pay higher wages
than other countries. Nearly
all their workers earn
enough to provide for both
present and future needs.
If they will but plan ahead
they may have in their
years of retirement, not
merely bare existence, but
real comfort.
Thousands of those interested in life
insurance have asked how the family in
come should be expended. Send for our
Home Bucket Booklet which tells how
much should be spent for necessities
food, housing, clothing, fuel and how
much should be laid aside for protec
tion. It will be mailed free. .
