AGOOD HUSBAND SHOULD PREPARE HIS WIFE TO END UP ALONE. Even if you have insurance on your own life, you could be leaving your wife and children only half protected. Here's what often happens: Upon the husband's death, a wife receives the proceeds of his Whole Life Policy. Now she should have insurance on her own life as new head of the family. However, she may not want to spend that money now. Or she may find insurance un affordable because of her age, or unavailable because of her health. She's uninsured and the children now are unprotected. But Metropolitan and you can keep that from happening to your wife. Metropolitan is introducing a "Surviving Spouse" rider avail able with our Whole Life Plus policy. So your wife would not only get the full proceeds of your policy, she would then automatically receive term coverage on her own life equal to what you had on yours. She would have that coverage until age 65, at no extra cost to her and regardless of her state of health. It makes good sense. You can take this step for only about $15 a year, plus a premium of generally less than a dollar for each thousand dollars of term coverage. Why not call a professional Metropolitan representative soon. Let Metropolitan make sure that your wife is better prepared than most. XA M et roplit an METROPOLITAN REALLY STANDS BY YOU.
