Insurance To Pay New Dividends According to Charles Riggleman deputy director of the West Virginia Department of Veterans' Affairs, nearly four million veterans who have retained their G.I. Life Insurance will share in a record $664.6 million dividend during 1982. Because of higher interest rates earned by in. surance funds the amount to be paid in 1982 is $45 million above the 1981 figure. Rigglenmn went on to ex. plain that the dividends will be paid automatically on the ann/versary date d the in. dividual's insurance policy, and no application is necessary. Payments will be made in various amounts depending on the type of policy, the amount of in- surance in force, the insured's age at issue or renewal and the time the policy has been in force. Riggleman further states the average dividend for term policyholders will be $12, and for permanent plan policyholders the payment will average $246. Those holding modified llfe plans will receive an average of $116. Anyone desiring further information.on this or any other veterans benefit should contact Riggleman's office located at 621 W.
