Costs associated with one's death that must be settled prior to distribution of that person's estate. Final expenses may include funeral and burial costs, existing debts, taxes and other outstanding expenses.
Evidence of Insurability:
Proof that you are insurable. Such evidence is generally obtained through statements on your application regarding your health, avocations, employment and financial condition. In most cases, medical records are required, and sometimes a medical examination is needed.
In business, a legally binding agreement, generally between several owners or an owner and a key employee, which provides that, if an owner dies, his or her business interest will be purchased by the designated survivor(s). Life insurance is often used to make sure that the money is available to purchase the business interest at the owner's death.
In a cash value (also called "permanent") life insurance policy, this is the value that can accumulate in the policy, usually on a tax-deferred basis. For variable products, the Cash Value includes the total value of the policy’s interest in the Separate Account plus any amount in any fixed account options. As the policyowner, you can access the available cash value, through loans and/or surrenders, depending on your policy’s terms, at any time and for any purpose. Some people borrow cash values for down payment on a home, to help pay college bills, or to provide supplemental income in retirement. Note that accessed cash values will reduce the death benefit of your policy or otherwise negatively impact overall policy values.
