Insurance & Annuity Glossary

Insurance & Annuity Glossary


Insurance is a contract relationship entered into by the insurer and the insured. Such a contract, more commonly called the policy, usually provides that, on payment of the premium, the insurer promises to indemnify and reimburse the insured for any loss incurred by him from certain stated causes.

The policy, as a contract, must contain all of the elements necessary for a valid contract. The mutual considerations here are the premium paid by the insured and the promise of coverage made by the insurance company.

The causes of damage as provided for in the policy are also called "risks". The company specifically stipulates those risks which are covered under the particular policy. Any risk that is not stated shall not be included.

A policy must have a subject which is to be insured. It may be the life of a designated person, a house…

The risk or peril against which the life or property is to be insured must be specified in the policy: the death of a person, liability resulting from the negligent operation of an automobile…

The amount for which the policy covers the loss must be indicated.

The insurance taker is the holder of the policy. Normally the term during which the policy will be in effect is 1 year, after which it is renewed automatically unless you decide not to renew it, in which case you should previously advise the insurance company 2 months before it is due.
