The Best Resolution Any Teacher Can Make
January 1 1920
Resolve now to end the danger of permanent or temporary loss of income through Sickness, Accident or Quarantine, which faces every unprotected teacher.
Every year one out of every six teacherg is deprived of all or part of her income from these causes. Loss of salary, even for a time, means serious inroads on the savings account, and often real distress.
Start the new year right by joining the thousands of other teachers who are positively protected by the T. C. U., at a cost of less than five cents a day.
What The T. C. U. Will Do For You
It will pay you $25 a monh for illness that does not confine you to the house, but keeps you from work.
It will pay operation benefits in addition to other benefits after your Policy has been maintained in force for one year.
It will pay you a 20 per cent increase in Sick Benefits for two months when you are confined in an established hospital.
It pays regular indemnities of from $333 to $1500 for major accidents, or for accidental loss of life. All benefits are doubled for travel accidents.
As the first step toward making this most important resolution, send for our booklet which explains T. C. U. Protection in detail and shows you what hundreds of teachers all over the country think of it. TEACHERS CASUALTY UNDERWRITERS
