Introduction

Insurance Advisor
Todays insurance market is increasingly complicated, with a rapid trend toward the
diversification andcommoditization of insurance products. As insurance companies diversify
their product portfolios, agentsare pressured to become familiar with a wide variety of strategies
and products. Because many agents sellproducts and services from different providers,
companies are strongly motivated to provide an efficient andeasy way to sell their services.
Agent loyalty is critical to the carrier who relies on independent agents.
Meanwhile, industry data shows that competitive differentiation between products continues to
decline.Who feels the strain? Both carriers and agents, who compose the key distribution
channels, faced withmounting reassures, both agents and providers must focus on gaining a
competitive advantage. In thisincreasingly competitive battle for market share, it is vital for
independent agencies and brokers and theircarriers to position themselves as aggressive
competitors by making the needed investments in people,technology, branding, advertising and a
disciplined Sales process. When it comes to building and maintaininga base of satisfied
insurance clients, theres no substitute for face or phone time. In fact, personal servicedrives
profitability for many insurance agencies and agents. In a recent survey of insurance clients,
morethan half of consumers cited personalized service and human interaction as the factors
driving loyalty totheir agent. Yet as more customers use alternate channels, such as the Web, call
centers, and mobile devicesto research insurance options and apply for and manage policies,
insurance agencies must find new ways toachieve their ultimate goal of creating loyal and
committed clients.

Independent insurance agents, also known as insurance sales agents or "producers", typically
sell a variety of insurance and financial products, including property insurance and casualty
insurance, life insurance, health insurance, disability insurance, and long-term care insurance.
Property and casualty insurance agents sell insurance policies that protect individuals and
businesses from financial loss resulting from automobile accidents, fire, theft, storms, and other
events that can damage property. For businesses, property and casualty insurance can also cover
injured Workers Compensation Insurance, product liability claims, or medical malpractice
claims.
Independent insurance agents typically represent a number of insurance companies, or "carriers",
and sell the products that most appropriately meet the needs of their clients. Independent agents
typically are very well trained and knowledgeable of the complexities of the insurance market
and insurance law.[1] Their expertise allows them to advise their clients about appropriate
amounts of insurance and insurance coverages for their particular needs. Often, independent
insurance agents will work with insurance intermediaries, which obtain quotes from multiple
insurance providers and passes them off to the independent agent. Working with an insurance
intermediary service allows the independent agent to review many quotes and offer their clients
the best policy options available. For their efforts, independent agents are paid a commission
(remuneration).[2]
In addition to insurance policies, agents often sell mutual funds, annuities, and products that
address wealth management, retirement and estate planning. Independent agents must be
licensed by the states in which they sell insurance and financial products.[2]

There are a number of major trade organizations that support the interests and needs of the
independent insurance agent, including Agents For Change,[3] The National Organization of Life
and Health Agents (NOLHA),[4] the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (The
Big "I"),[5] and the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA).[6]
Independent agents are independent contractors for the insurance companies they represent.
Several companies may authorize the agent to sell for them, but the agent remains an
independent businessperson. While the agent collects commissions, they do not collect a salary
from the companies they represent. On average, independent agents work with thirteen property
and casualty and six life and health insurance companies on a regular basis.[7]
Independent agents own and control their accounts, policy records, and renewals. If an
independent agents contract with a particular insurance company terminates, the agent retains
the rights to active accounts and may place them with another insurer.
Competition exists between exclusive agents and independent agents. Exclusive agents, who are
salaried employees of the insurance company, write a majority of the personal lines business. [8]
However, because of the complexities involved in commercial risks, independent agents capture
approximately 80 percent of the commercial lines market. [9] It is having access to multiple
markets that gives independent agents a competitive advantage in commercial lines.
To add to an independent agents competition pool, many insurance companies are direct
competitors to the agents they appoint. For example, Progressive Insurance spends nearly $300
million a year in advertising directly to the public. Yet, Progressive is the countrys largest writer
of private passenger auto insurance through the independent agent distribution channel.

Introduction of insurance
Life insurance (or commonly life assurance, especially in the Commonwealth) is a contract
between an insured (insurance policy holder) and an insurer or assurer, where the insurer
promises to pay a designated beneficiary a sum of money (the "benefits") in exchange for a
premium, upon the death of the insured person. Depending on the contract, other events such as
terminal illness or critical illness may also trigger payment. The policy holder typically pays a
premium, either regularly or as a lump sum. Other expenses (such as funeral expenses) are also
sometimes included in the benefits.

Life policies are legal contracts and the terms of the contract describe the limitations of the
insured events. Specific exclusions are often written into the contract to limit the liability of the
insurer; common examples are claims relating to suicide, fraud, war, riot, and civil commotion.
Life-based contracts tend to fall into two major categories:

Protection policies designed to provide a benefit in the event of specified event,


typically a lump sum payment. A common form of this design is term insurance.

Investment policies where the main objective is to facilitate the growth of capital by
regular or single premiums. Common forms (in the US) are whole life, universal life, and
variable life policies.

History of insurance
Insurance began as a way of reducing the risk to traders, as early as 2000 BC in China and 1750
BC in Babylon. An early form of life insurance dates to Ancient Rome; "burial clubs" covered
the cost of members' funeral expenses and assisted survivors financially.

Amicable Society for a Perpetual Assurance Office, established in 1706, was the first life
insurance company in the world.
Modern life insurance policies were established in the early 18th century. The first company to
offer life insurance was the Amicable Society for a Perpetual Assurance Office, founded in
London in 1706 by William Talbot and Sir Thomas Allen. The first plan of life insurance was
that each member paid a fixed annual payment per share on from one to three shares with
consideration to age of the members being twelve to fifty-five. At the end of the year a portion of
the "amicable contribution" was divided among the wives and children of deceased members and
it was in proportion to the amount of shares the heirs owned. Amicable Society started with 2000
members.
The first life table was written by Edmund Halley in 1693, but it was only in the 1750s that the
necessary mathematical and statistical tools were in place for the development of modern life
insurance. James Dodson, a mathematician and actuary, tried to establish a new company that
issued premiums aimed at correctly offsetting the risks of long term life assurance policies, after
being refused admission to the Amicable Life Assurance Society because of his advanced age.

He was unsuccessful in his attempts at procuring a charter from the government before his death
in 1757.
His disciple, Edward Rowe Mores, was finally able to establish the Society for Equitable
Assurances on Lives and Survivorship in 1762. It was the world's first mutual insurer and it
pioneered age based premiums based on mortality rate laying the framework for scientific
insurance practice and development and the basis of modern life assurance upon which all life
assurance schemes were subsequently based.
Mores also specified that the chief official should be called an actuary - the earliest known
reference to the position as a business concern. The first modern actuary was William Morgan,
who was appointed in 1775 and served until 1830. In 1776 the Society carried out the first
actuarial valuation of liabilities and subsequently distributed the first reversionary bonus (1781)
and interim bonus (1809) among its members. It also used regular valuations to balance
competing interests. The Society sought to treat its members equitably and the Directors tried to
ensure that the policyholders received a fair return on their respective investments. Premiums
were regulated according to age, and anybody could be admitted regardless of their state of
health and other circumstances.

Life insurance premiums written in 2005


The sale of life insurance in the U.S. began in the late 1760s. The Presbyterian Synods in
Philadelphia and New York City created the Corporation for Relief of Poor and Distressed
Widows and Children of Presbyterian Ministers in 1759; Episcopalian priests organized a similar
fund in 1769. Between 1787 and 1837 more than two dozen life insurance companies were
started, but fewer than half a dozen survived. As the United States grew as a nation, its military
presence increased on its own continent and became mobile on the high seas. Military officers
banded together to found both the Army (AAFMAA)and the Navy Mutual Aid Association(Navy
Mutual) after the widely publicized plight of widows and orphans left stranded in the West after
the Battle of the Little Big Horn, June 25, 1876, and U.S. sailors had died while at sea, leaving
families back home to fend for themselves.
Market Trends-According To A Study By Swiss Re, The EU Was The Largest Market For Life
Insurance Premiums In 2005, Followed By The USA And Japan.

Overview
Parties to Contract
There is a difference between the insured and the policy owner, although the owner and the
insured are often the same person. For example, if Joe buys a policy on his own life, he is both
the owner and the insured. But if Jane, his wife, buys a policy on Joe's life, she is the owner and
he is the insured. The policy owner is the guarantor and he will be the person to pay for the
policy. The insured is a participant in the contract, but not necessarily a party to it. Also, most
companies allow the payer and owner to be different, e. g. a grandparent paying premiums for a
policy on a child, owned by a grandchild.

Chart of a life insurance

The beneficiary receives policy proceeds upon the insured person's death. The owner designates
the beneficiary, but the beneficiary is not a party to the policy. The owner can change the
beneficiary unless the policy has an irrevocable beneficiary designation. If a policy has an
irrevocable beneficiary, any beneficiary changes, policy assignments, or cash value borrowing
would require the agreement of the original beneficiary.
In cases where the policy owner is not the insured (also referred to as the celli qui vat or CQV),
insurance companies have sought to limit policy purchases to those with an insurable interest in

the CQV. For life insurance policies, close family members and business partners will usually be
found to have an insurable interest. The insurable interest requirement usually demonstrates that
the purchaser will actually suffer some kind of loss if the CQV dies. Such a requirement prevents
people from benefiting from the purchase of purely speculative policies on people they expect to
die. With no insurable interest requirement, the risk that a purchaser would murder the CQV for
insurance proceeds would be great. In at least one case, an insurance company which sold a
policy to a purchaser with no insurable interest (who later murdered the CQV for the proceeds),
was found liable in court for contributing to the wrongful death of the victim (Liberty National
Life v. Weldon, 267 Ala.171 (1957)).

Contract termsSpecial exclusions may apply, such as suicide clauses, whereby the policy becomes null and void
if the insured commits suicide within a specified time (usually two years after the purchase date;
some states provide a statutory one-year suicide clause). Any misrepresentations by the insured
on the application may also be grounds for nullification. Most US states specify a maximum
contestability period, often no more than two years. Only if the insured dies within this period
will the insurer have a legal right to contest the claim on the basis of misrepresentation and
request additional information before deciding whether to pay or deny the claim.
The face amount of the policy is the initial amount that the policy will pay at the death of the
insured or when the policy matures, although the actual death benefit can provide for greater
orlesser than the face amount. The policy matures when the insured dies or reaches a specified
age (such as 100 years old).

Costs, insurability, and underwritingThe insurer (the life insurance company) calculates the policy prices with intent to fund claims to
be paid and administrative costs, and to make a profit. The cost of insurance is determined using
mortality tables calculated by actuaries. Actuaries are professionals who employ actuarial
science, which is based on mathematics (primarily probability and statistics). Mortality tables are
statistically based tables showing expected annual mortality rates. It is possible to derive life
expectancy estimates from these mortality assumptions. Such estimates can be important in
taxation regulation.
The three main variables in a mortality table are commonly age, gender, and use of tobacco, but
more recently in the US, preferred class-specific tables have been introduced. The mortality
tables provide a baseline for the cost of insurance, but in practice these mortality tables are used
in conjunction with the health and family history of the individual applying for a policy to
determine premiums and insurability. Mortality tables currently in use by life insurance
companies in the United States are individually modified by each company using pooled industry
experience studies as a starting point. In the 1980s and 1990s, the SOA 197580 Basic Select &
Ultimate tables were the typical reference points, while the 2001 VBT and 2001 CSO tables were
published more recently. The newer tables include separate mortality tables for smokers and nonsmokers, and the CSO tables include separate tables for preferred classes.
Recent US mortality tables predict that roughly 0.35 in 1,000 non-smoking males aged 25 will
die during the first year of coverage after underwriting. Mortality approximately doubles for
every extra ten years of age, so the mortality rate in the first year for underwritten non-smoking
men is about 2.5 in 1,000 people at age 65. Compare this with the US population male mortality
rates of 1.3 per 1,000 at age 25 and 19.3 at age 65 (without regard to health or smoking status).

The mortality of underwritten persons rises much more quickly than the general population. At
the end of 10 years the mortality of that 25 year-old, non-smoking male is 0.66/1000/year.
Consequently, in a group of one thousand 25-year-old males with a $100,000 policy, all of
average health, a life insurance company would have to collect approximately $50 a year from
each participant to cover the relatively few expected claims. (0.35 to 0.66 expected deaths in
each year x $100,000 payout per death = $35 per policy). Other costs, such as administrative and
sales expenses, also need to be considered when setting the premiums. A 10 year policy for a 25year-old non-smoking male with preferred medical history may get offers as low as $90 per year
for a $100,000 policy in the competitive US life insurance market.
Most of the revenue received by insurance companies consists of premiums paid by policy
holders, with some additional money being made through the investment of some of the cash
raised from premiums. Rates charged for life insurance increase with the insured's age because,
statistically, people are more likely to die as they get older. The insurance company will
investigate the health of an applicant for a policy to assess the likelihood of incurring a claim, in
the same way that a bank would investigate an applicant for a loan to assess the likelihood of a
default. Group Insurance policies are an exception to this. This investigation and resulting
evaluation of the risk is termed underwriting. Health and lifestyle questions are asked, with
certain responses or revelations possibly meriting further investigation. Life insurance companies
in the United States support the Medical Information Bureau (MIB),which is a clearing house of
information on persons who have applied for life insurance with participating companies in the
last seven years. As part of the application, the insurer often requires the applicant's permission
to obtain information from their physicians.

Underwriters will determine the purpose of insurance; the most common being to protect the
owner's family or financial interests in the event of the insured's death. Other purposes include
estate planning or, in the case of cash-value contracts, investment for retirement planning. Bank
loans or buy-sell provisions of business agreements are another acceptable purpose.
In the USA, life insurance companies are never legally required to underwrite or to provide
coverage to anyone, with the exception of Civil Rights Act compliance requirements. Insurance
companies alone determine insurability, and some people, for their own health or lifestyle
reasons, are deemed uninsurable. The policy can be declined or rated (increasing the premium
amount to compensate for a greater probability of a claim), and the amount of the premium will
be proportional to the face value of the policy.
Many companies separate applicants into four general categories. These categories are preferred
best, preferred, standard, and tobacco. Preferred best is reserved only for the healthiest
individuals in the general population. This may mean, that the proposed insured has no adverse
medical history, is not under medication for any condition, and his family (immediate and
extended) have no history of early-onset cancer, diabetes, or other conditions.[17] Preferred means
that the proposed insured is currently under medication for a medical condition and have a
family history of particular illnesses. Most people are in the standard category. People in the
tobacco category typically have to pay higher premiums due to the inherent health problems that
smoking tobacco creates. Profession, travel history, and lifestyle factor into whether the proposed
insured will be granted a policy and which category the insured falls. For example, a person who
would otherwise be classified as preferred best may be denied a policy if he or she travels to a

high risk country. Underwriting practices can vary from insurer to insurer, encouraging
competition.

Death proceeds
Upon the insured's death, the insurer requires acceptable proof of death before it pays the claim.
The normal minimum proof required is a death certificate, and the insurer's claim form
completed, signed, and typically notarized.If the insured's death is suspicious and the policy
amount is large, the insurer may investigate the circumstances surrounding the death before
deciding whether it has an obligation to pay the claim.
Payment from the policy may be as a lump sum or as an annuity, which is paid in regular
installments for either a specified period or for the beneficiary's lifetime.

Insurance vs. assurance


The specific uses of the terms "insurance" and "assurance" are sometimes confused. In general,
in jurisdictions where both terms are used, "insurance" refers to providing coverage for an event
that might happen (fire, theft, flood, etc.), while "assurance" is the provision of coverage for an
event that is certain to happen. In the United States both forms of coverage are called
"insurance" for reasons of simplicity in companies selling both products. [citation

needed]

By some

definitions, "insurance" is any coverage that determines benefits based on actual losses whereas
"assurance" is coverage with predetermined benefits irrespective of the losses incurred.
Types
Life insurance may be divided into two basic classes: temporary and permanent; or the following
subclasses: term, universal, whole life, and endowment life insurance.

Term insuranceTerm assurance provides life insurance coverage for a specified term. The policy does not
accumulate cash value. Term is generally considered "pure" insurance, where the premium buys
protection in the event of death and nothing else.
There are three key factors to be considered in term insurance:
1. Face amount (protection or death benefit),
2. Premium to be paid (cost to the insured), and
3. Length of coverage (term).

Annual renewable term is a one-year policy, but the insurance company guarantees it will issue a
policy of an equal or lesser amount regardless of the insurability of the applicant, and with a
premium set for the applicant's age at that time.
Level premium term can be purchased in 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 or 35 year terms. The premium and
death benefit stays level during these terms.
Mortgage life insurance insures a loan secured by real property and usually features a level
premium amount for a declining policy face value because what is insured is the principal and
interest outstanding on a mortgage that is constantly being reduced by mortgage payments. The
face amount of the policy is always the amount of the principal and interest outstanding that are
paid should the applicant die before the final installment is paid.

Permanent life insurancePermanent life insurance is life insurance that cannot be cancelled for any reason except fraud, so
long as the owner regularly pays his premiums. Any such cancellation must occur within a period
of time (usually two years) defined by law. A permanent insurance policy accumulates a cash
value up to its date of maturation, reducing the risk to which the insurance company is exposed
as well as the policy's expense to the company. Such policies will be more expensive to older
people than to younger ones. The owner can access the money in the cash value by withdrawing
money, borrowing the cash value, or surrendering the policy and receiving the surrender value.
The four basic types of permanent insurance are whole life, universal life, limited pay, and
endowment.

Whole life coverageWhole life insurance provides lifetime death benefit coverage for a level premium. For younger
people, whole life premiums are much higher than term insurance premiums, but because term
insurance premiums rise with increasing age of the insured, the cumulative value of all premiums

paid under whole and term policies are roughly equal if policies are maintained to average life
expectancy. Part of the insurance contract stipulates that the policyholder is entitled to a cash
value reserve that is part of the policy and guaranteed by the company. This cash value can be
accessed at any time through policy loans that are received income tax-free and paid back
according to mutually agreed-upon schedules. These policy loans are available until the insured's
death. If any loans amounts are outstanding--i.e., not yet paid back--upon the insured's death, the
insurer subtracts those amounts from the policy's face value/death benefit and pays the remainder
to the policy's beneficiary.
While some life insurance companies market whole life as a "death benefit with a savings
account", the distinction is artificial, according to life insurance actuaries Albert E. Easton and
Timothy F. Harris. The net amount at risk is the amount the insurer must pay to the beneficiary
should the insured die before the policy has accumulated premiums equal to the death benefit. It
is the difference between the policy's current cash value (i.e., total paid in by owner plus that
amount's interest earnings) and its face value/death benefit. Although the actual cash value may
be different from the death benefit, in practice the policy is identified by its original face
value/death benefit.
The advantages of whole life insurance are its guaranteed death benefits; guaranteed cash values;
fixed, predictable premiums; and mortality and expense charges that do not reduce the policy's
cash value. The disadvantages of whole life are the inflexibility of its premiums and the fact that
the internal rate of return of the policy may not be competitive with other savings and investment
alternatives.

Death benefit amounts of whole life policies can also be increased through accumulation and/or
reinvestment of policy dividends, though these dividends are not guaranteed and may be higher
or lower than earnings at existing interest rates over time. According to internal documents from
some life insurance companies, the internal rate of return and dividend payment realized by the
policyholder is often a function of when the policyholder buys the policy and how long that
policy remains in force. Dividends paid on a whole life policy can ..be utilized in many ways.
The life insurance manual defines policy dividends as refunds of premium over-payments. They
are therefore not exactly like corporate stock dividends, which are payouts of net income from
total revenues.

insurance. In conclusion one can safely say that the purpose of insurance be it or
non-life is to transfer the financial loss to the insurance company who spreads in over to the
policyholders.

Life insurance-

Life insurance (Life Assurance in British English) is a type of insurance. As in all insurance, the
insured transfers a risk to the insurer. The insured pays a premium and receives a policy in
exchange. The risk assumed by the insurer is the risk of death of the insured.

How life insurance works


There are three parties in a life insurance transaction; the insurer, the insured, and the owner
of the policy (policyholder), although the owner and the insured are often the same person.
For example, if John Smith buys a policy on his own life, he is both the owner and the insured.
But if Mary Smith, his wife, buys a policy on John's life, she is the owner and he is the insured.
The owner of the policy is called the grantee (he or she will be the person who will pay for
the policy). Another important person involved is the beneficiary.
The beneficiary is the person or persons who will receive the policy proceeds upon the death of
the insured. The beneficiary isnot a party to the policy, but is designated by the owner, who may
change the beneficiary unless the policy has an irrevocable beneficiary designation.
With an irrevocable beneficiary, that beneficiary must agree to changes in beneficiary, policy
assignment, or borrowing of cash value. The policy, like all insurance policies, is a legal contract
specifying

the

terms

and

conditions

of the risk assumed. Special provisions apply, including a suicide clause wherein the policy ecom
es null if the insured commits suicide within a specified time for the policy date (usuallytwo
years). Any misrepresentation by the owner or insured on the application is also grounds
for nullification. Most contracts have a contestability period, also usually a two-year period; if
theinsured dies within this period, the insurer has a legal right to contest the claim and
requestadditional information before deciding to pay or deny the claim. The face amount of the

policy is normally the amount paid when the policy matures, although policies can provide for
greater or lesser amounts. The policy matures when the insured dies or reaches a specified age.
The most common reason to buy a life insurance policy is to protect the financial interests of the
owner of the policy in the event of the insured's demise. The insurance proceeds would pay for
funeral and other death costs or be invested to provide income replacing the deceased's wages.
Other reasons include estate planning and retirement. The owner (if not the insured) must have
an insurable interest in the insured, i.e. a legitimate reason for insuring another persons life. The
insurer (the life insurance company) calculates the policy prices with intent to recover claims to
be paid and administrative costs, and to make a profit. The cost of insurance is determined using
mortality tables calculated by actuaries. Actuaries are professionals who use actuarial science
which is based in mathematics (primarily probability and statistics). Mortality tables are
statistically based tables showing average life expectancies. The three main variables in a
mortality table are age, gender, and use of tobacco. The mortality tables provide a baseline for
the cost of insurance. In practice, these mortality tables are used in conjunction with the health
and family history of the individual applying for a policy in order to determine premiums and
insurability. The current mortality table being used bylife insurance companies in the United
States and their regulators was calculated during the1980s. There is currently a measure
being pushed to update the mortality tables by 2008.The current mortality table assumes that
roughly 2 in 1,000 people aged 25 will die during the term of coverage. This number rises
roughly quadratically to about 25 in 1,000 people for those aged 65. So in a group of one
thousand 25 year old males with a $100,000 policy, a life insurance company would have to, at
the minimum, collect $200 a year from each of the thousand people to cover the expected claims.
The insurance company receives the premiums from the policy owner and invests them to create

a pool of money from which to pay claims, and finance the insurance company's operations.
Contrary to popular belief, the majority of the money that insurance companies make comes
directly from premiums paid, as money gained through investment of premiums will never, in
even the most ideal market conditions, vest enough money per year to pay out claims. Rates
charged for life insurance increase with the insureds age because, statistically, a people are more
likely to die as they get older. Since adverse selection can have a negative impact on the financial
results of the insurer, the insurer investigates each proposed insured (unless the policy is below a
company-established minimum amount) beginning with the application, which becomes part of
the policy. Group
Insurance policies are an exception. This investigation and resulting evaluation of the risk is calle
dunderwriting. Health and lifestyle questions are asked, and the answers are dutifully recorded.
Certain responses by the insured will be given further investigation. Life insurance companies in
the United States support The Medical Information Bureau, which is a clearinghouse of medical
information on all persons who have ever applied for life insurance. As part of the application,the
insurer receives permission to obtain information from the proposed insured's physicians.Life
insurance companies are never required by law to underwrite or to provide coverage
onanyone. They alone determine insurability, and some people, for their own health or lifestyle
reasons, are uninsurable. The policy can be declined (turned down) or rated. Rating
meansincreasing the premiums to provide for additional risks relative to that particular
insured.Many companies use four general health categories for those evaluated for a life
insurance policy. These categories are Preferred Best,
Preferred, Standard and Tobacco. Preferred Best means that the proposed insured has no adverse
medical history is not under medication for anycondition, and his family (immediate and

extended) has no history of early cancer, diabetes or other conditions. Preferred is like Preferred
Best, but it allows that the proposed insured iscurrently under medication for the condition and
may have some family history. Most people arein the Standard category. Profession, travel, and
lifestyle also factor into not only which categorythe proposed insured falls, but also whether the
proposed insured will be denied a policy. For example, a person who would otherwise be in the
Preferred Best category will be denied a policy if he or she travels to a high risk country. Upon
the death of the insured, the insurer will require acceptable proof of death before paying the
claim. The normal minimum proof is a death certificate and the insurer's claim form completed,
signed, and often notarized. If the insured's death was suspicious and the policy amount warrants
it, the insurer may investigate the circumstances surrounding the death, before deciding whether
there is a legal obligation to pay the claim. Proceeds from the policy may be paid in a lump sum
or as an annuity paid over time in regular recurring payments for either for the life of a specified
person or a specified time period.
