is considered, by its maker, to be an absolutely true statement warranty
is a statement made which is considered true in the opinion and to the knowledge of the individual making it representation
if a company can prove a representation was material, the representation was flase, the insured knew the statement was flase but made it anyway, the insured wanted the company to act on the flasehood, and the company did act on it then the contact is void
the promises between the parties are found in this clause insuring clause
The promise is that in return for regular stated premiums paid by the owner in a timely fashion then a face amount will be paid upon the death. This is in the insuring clause
The owners rights are assignment, beneficiary changes, borrowing against cash value, surrendering cash value, dividends, and selection of mode
the parties named in the insuring clause are the company, the policyholder, and the insured
In the owners rights the assignment right states that the owner can sell or gift his ownership to another party without the permission of the insurance company
Not included in the insuring clause are the policy type and the mode of premium
If the insured and the policy applicant are different, who has the owners rights? the owner (applicant) not the insured
This clause says that once a policy has been delivered to an owner, the owner has a specific amount of time to decide if they want to keep the insurance free look examination

This clause sets forth the contractual rights belonging to the policyowner owners rights
This person will recieve the proceeds in the event of the insured's death beneficiary
The first choice to recieve the proceeds of the insured's death is the beneficiary primary
Nonforfeiture Options are options that are important when the policy owner does not pay the required premium
The second choice to recieve the proceeds of the insured's death in the event of the death of the primary beneficiary is the contingent beneficiary
Cash Value (Surrender), Extended Term Insurance, and (Reduced) Paid-up Insurance are all considered what Nonforfeiture Options
If a beneficiary can not be changed by the applicant then the beneficiary is irrevocable
Name the 3 Nonforfeiture Options Cash Value (Surrender), Extended Term Insurance, (Reduced) Paid-up Insurance
If the beneficiary can be changed by the applicant then the beneficiary is revocable
This is paid to the owner who surrenders the policy and all rights held by the policy owner Cash Value (Surrender)
If the beneficiary is a minor the proceeds of the insured's death go to the probate court
This is the "automatic" selection of the 3 Nonforfeiture Options Extended Term Insurance
If the insured and the primary beneficiary die at the same time and there is no contingent beneficiary the proceeds would go to the insured's estate
This is in the event the policy owner stops paying premium but neither cash value nor requests a paid up policy the insurance company automatically places the policy on Extended Term Insurance
This is a 31 day time allotment tge owner has from the premium due date in which to make the premium payment without losing some essential rights of the contact grace period
Extended Term Coverage continues for as long as cash value remains in the policy to make required payments
if the 31 day grace period expries without payment, then the policy is lapsed
Before a contract can be eligible for reinstatement, it must not have been surrendered or had the paid-up option exercised and must be on extended term insurance
This clause states that if at the end of the grace period the premium is not paid then the company can take cash value from the policy to pay premium so it does not lapse Automatic Premium Loan
if a policy owner dies on extended term insurance then the full face amount is paid
Is Automatic Premium Loan (APL) mandatory? No
this allows the owner to use the entire cash value to purchase a fully paid-up face amount of insurance of the same type originally purchased (Reduced) Paid-up insurance
This clause allows the owner a period of time (between 3-5 years) after the policy lapsed to pay back all unpaid premium to reinstate the policy from the original issue date Reinstatement
Paid-Up Insurance is "reduced" because it is less than the original amount
There is no obligation to repay this loan but if the loan and interest charged on the loan equals the cash value, the policy is no longer in force policy loan
This is the only nonforfetiure option that still accumulates cash value (Reduced) Paid-up Insurance
In a universal or variable life contact the owner can take account values for a one time service charge. There is no interest paid, this is called a withdrawal
This is offered by mutual companies but not stock companies dividends
How often are dividends declared annually
Dividends are not considered to be either profit or income and therefore are not taxable
This is a two year period of time the insurance company has to investigate the statements made by the insured Incontestibility clause
The 4 most common dividend options offered by a company are Cash, Accumulation of interest, Paid-up additions, and One-year term option
This is the transfer of some or all rights held under the insurance contract by the contract owner to another party Assignment
This means the dividend is invested with the insurance company to earn interest at a rate of interest specified in the policy Accumulation of Interest
this means "all incidents of ownership" are transfered to an assignee who now stands the in the same position as did the assignor who transferred the rights (this is a type of assignment) absolute
As the dividends and interest accumulate they are available to the policy owner at any time
this is where a life contract is used to secure a transaction (this is a type of assignment) collateral
If dividends and interest are not cashed in before the insured dies then they are paid in addition to the face amount of the policy
The two types of assignment are absolute and collateral
Paid-up Additions apply the dividends to purchase addition amounts of paid-up death benefit. It is a "mini" single premium death benefit.
this is a two year period from the policy issue date permitting a company not to pay the death benefit if the cause of death is suicide suicide clause
If a policy owner has paid-up additions and wants to take the cash value of the dividends, can they? yes, but the paid-up additions will be eliminated
Will a misstatement about age and gender void a policy no
This uses the annual dividend to purchase one year of term insurance coverage at the attained age of the insured which would be paid up in addition to the face amount of the contract One-year term option
If the gender and age were incorrect then once the correct gender and agre are discovered then it is corrected by calculating the premium payment that should have been collected
If one-year term option is selected after the policy is purchased the compant might require proof of insurability
settlement options are different options of how the face amount will be paid to a beneficiary
The 3 dividend options that are most often USED are Premium application, Endow the policy, Paid-Up option
This settlement option states that the compant keeps the death benefit and pays interest to the beneficiary interest only
This applies the dividend to the next premium payment, lowering the premium cost premium application
this settlement option is a fixed periodic payment paid until both the principal and interest run out fixed amount option
this uses the dividend to pay the insurance faster and creates a closer endowment date endow the policy
Can the policy owner pick the settlement option? yes
this is when the dividends are added to the cash value to pay the policy sooner and "vanish" future premium payments however the endowment date stays the same paid-up option
If the owner did not pick the settlement option before their time of death then who picks the settlement option? the beneficiary
The two Test concepts to understand about dividends are the main benefit of dividends is insurance cost is reduced, policy loans taken will not reduce future dividend payments as long as premiums are paid on time
This settlement option is very similar to an annuity where equal installments are paid for a specific time and then stop fixed period option
This settlement option, the proceeds are held by the company and regular periodic payments are made to the beneficiary as long as they live life income
This settlement option, proceeds are paid in installments during the lifetime of two beneficiaries Joint and survivor
in the Joint and Survivor settlement option, if one of the beneficiaries dies then a reduced payment is paid to the survivor (50%, 66%, or 75%)
