Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta If you're under 55 and work full-time for a government unit or a company with three or more employees-we GUARANTEE to accept you... Monday, Jvne 4, 1VJ THI IITHMIDOS HIRAID f Imagine a plan that says: must collect cash- sickor well! Yes it's true... a plan that actually pays you back your premiums if you stay well for 10 continuous years, or pays you... a week for 17 weeks, plus a week for another 87 weeks when you're sick or hurt and can't work because of a covered disabling sickness or accident. And you don't have to go to hospital to collect! No medical exam-no salesman to see- send no money to apply. If you're sick or hurt, you collect: D When you can't work at your regular job because of a disabling sickness or in- jury covered by your plan and are under a doctor's care you get: a week for the first 17 weeks you are out of work and then you get: a week for up to another 87 weeks for the same sickness or accident. Yes, you get a total of 104 weeks of benefits-two full years, or worth of protection for each covered sickness or accident. D If the same condition comes back after you have been back on the job for 6 months, you are entitled to another full 104 weeks of benefits. Benefits for any new covered condition begin immediately, of course. D whether you're at home... in hospital... rehabilitation centre nursing home... or any other treatment facility... and confinement is not necessary. D Your cash benefits start on the first day you are not able to work due to a cov- ered accident whether you stay home or go into hospital. C3 Sickness benefits also begin on the first day for a covered sickness when you go to hospital. D Sickness benefits begin on tne eighth day when you stsy home and don't have to go to hospital. D You are paid from your first day home, of course, when your home confinement follows a hospital stay. D Men collect even if they are disabled while unemployed or work part time... but you must be employed full time when you apply. n If your disability lasts as long as four months you don't have to pay any more premiums until you go back to work. Meanwhile we keep paying you full benefits and your policy remains in force. Even after two years your policy will continue in force if you have enroled in a retraining program to prepare you for another type of employment and you resume payments at the end of the two year benefit period. D Your family (or any beneficiary you choose) will be paid a week for two years-a total of the event of your death from accidental causes within 90 days of an accident. D Your premium rate can never be raised... never. !f you stay well you collect: G All the money you have paid in premiums for each 10 year period will be returned to you if you stay well and collect no benefits. Your first 10 year period begins on the effective date of your policy. Each additional period begins at the end of the previous period and you get all your premium payments back at the end of each period. O You may choose to leave your money with the company and earn interest until you're ready to retire. D Upon before, if you want-you may choose to take your money plus all interest in one single payment or... Q Get a monthly income for the rest of your life after age 6r What this plan doesn't pay for: D Injuries caused by war or act of war; participation in a riot or other civil commo- tion or during the commission of a crime (unless you are the victim of the D Mental disorders, alcoholism and drug addiction. Pregnancy, childbirth, mis- carriage or conditions arising therefrom. D Pre-existing conditions (conditions you had before the Effective Date of your policy) are covered beginning on the Effective Date UNLESS you received treat- ment or medical advice for them anytime within two years before the Effective Date. If you did receive such treatment or advice within that period, the will be covered AFTER your policy has been in force for two continuous years. O Women are not eligible for benefits if unemployed or work part-time. Now you and any overworking member of your family can apply for The Family Income Protection Plan with no red tape... no medical examination no medical questions to an- swer and no salesman to see. Everyone who works for a living regard- less of occupation Is eligible to apply for this plan provided you work for a company employ- ing a total of 3 or more people, work full time and are under 55 years old. This plan pays you in addition to any other diMui'Hi; benefits you get from any ernment or private plan provided by your em- ployer and in addition to any other insur- ance you may have with our company or any other company. To join just fill out the Application Form and mail. SEND NO MONEY WITH YOUR APPLICATION. We guarantee to issue you a policy reg- istered in your name promptly. When you get it, your policy will already have an effective date on it-usually the same day we receive four Imagine a plan that pays you cash when you may need it most-yet may cost you absolutely nothing. We Canadians are lucky. When we are sick or hurt and cannot work, we get two-thirds of our weekly earnings up to a week for 15 weeks. Under the recent amendment to the Unemployment Insurance Act sickness and accident benefits begin after you have been out of work because of total disability for at least two weeks and continue during the disability for a total of 15 weeks. It's a great program. But, it has gaps that can cause money worries for you and your family... gaps that can force you to bor- row to keep up with regular household and to pay for those extra comforts and ser- vices you could need to speed your recovery. Of course, you could cut down on your standard of living during your disability. But could you really do so? Which expenses would you cut back? Rent or mortgage payments? Not likely unless you move your family. Give up your car? Would you really sell it knowing you'll need it when you're well again? Food? Utility bills? Installment payments on furniture and appliances? The fact is that most of our expenses are pretty we can't cut for a short period of time without causing us future problems. And worrying about them might slow up your recovery. And what happens when you can't go back to work at the end of 15 weeks when your Government-sponsored payments stop? To help you solve these money prob- lems that arise when you're sick or hurt, we have designed The Family Income Protection plan that helps fill the money gaps between your regular earnings and your Gov- ernment-sponsored benefits. Suppose you stay healthy, haven't you wasted a lot of mcr.ey on insurance? Healthy'people hate to buy insurance because they think maybe they won't need it. The trouble is no one can tell who will need it and who won't. Hospitals are full of people who once felt as good as you do right now. But now you don't have to gamble. If you take out a Family Income Protection Plan the money is there if you need it. If you stay well and collect no benefits for 10 continuous years from the Effective Date of your new policy, you get back every cent you paid in premiums! What's more, we will continue to refund all your premium payments at the end of each additional 10 year period. We will even refund all your premiums for a shorter renewal period immediately prior to the policy anniversary fol- lowing your 65th birthday. All you have to do is stay well and keep your policy in force. If you prefer you can leave your money on deposit to earn interest until you are ready to retire. When you want the money, we guar- antee to give it to you PLUS all accrued interest in one lump sum payment. Or you can wait until you are 65 years old or younger and ready to retire and then collect a monthly income from us for the rest of your life. The amount of your monthly retirement check will depend on how much money you have paid In premiums and how much interest you have earned. But the exciting point is this. If you take this policy now as a long-term protection for yourself and your family, you absolutely cannot lose. Sick or well-YOU MUST COLLECT! You can cancel anytime- but we can't. Your plan is Guaranteed Renewable to Age 65. That means that we can never cancel your policy during your active working years so long as you make your premium payments on time. Yes, no matter how often you collect no matter how much money you collect, we cannot cancel your policy. You can cancel at any time, of course. Here's What You Pay: a week plan Your Monthly Rate Present Age Per Person Under -------------Also a week plan Your Monthly Rate Present Age Per Person Under 8.50 9.50 All cash benefits of the a week plan are half those of the a week plan. Be sure to check the plan you want on your application. Your Rate Can Never Be Raised. Your premium rate can never be raised no matter how old you get... or how often you collect cash or how much money you re- ceive for any reason whatsoever. The rate you pay now will remain the same for as long as you keep your policy in force. Claims are easy to and we pay fast.
