stewardship of our policyholders' interests."
About Dividends and The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company
Dividends paid to policyholders at mutual life insurance companies, like
Penn Mutual, are refunds of premium based on the actual experience of a
block of policies. In contrast, dividends at publicly held insurance
companies are paid to shareholders where the amounts of such dividends
are based on the company's overall profitability. It is important to
note that the payment and amount of policy dividends are not guaranteed.

world of possibilities. At the heart of this purpose is the belief that
life insurance is the most protective, responsible and rewarding action
a person can take, and is central to a sound financial plan. The company
is committed to helping families unlock life's possibilities through
life insurance and annuity solutions. This is accomplished through a
national network of financial professionals, who help clients make great
things possible. Penn Mutual supports its field representatives with
brokerage services through Hornor, Townsend & Kent, Inc., a Registered
Investment Advisor and wholly owned subsidiary, Member FINRA/SIPC.
