A Little Windfall, Just Like In Monopoly

by Rocket Finance

A while back, some of you read about my issues with State Farm Insurance in regards to the matter of life insurance for my children. Yesterday, I saw a State Farm envelope in the mail. When I began to examine the contents, the words “DIVIDEND INFORMATION ENCLOSED” jumped out at me. My initial thought was, “This is going to be an interesting gimmick.”

But then a check for $25.50 fell out of the envelope and I read the following:

The State Farm Board of Directors has authorized a dividend. Your dividend check is attached. It represents a return of part of your premium for the policy referenced above. When financial results are better than expected and business conditions permit, we are pleased to return part of your premium. We enjoy these positive results because of our policy holder’s attention to the safety and our careful management of your premium dollars. We work hard every day to mainain the long-term financial trength needed to keep our promises and provide you with fair, reliable and quick service whenever you need it. – STATE FARM INSURANCE

Twenty-five fifty may not seem like a lot of money to many of you, but I was impressed and as a result, my agent will probably talk me into another $50,000 worth of life insurance coverage next month.
