Life Insurance

Life insurance is a contract between an insured person (the policyholder) and an insurer (the insurance company) where the insurer promises to pay beneficiary/beneficiaries (as identified by the policyholder) a sum of money when the insured person dies. The policyholder pays a premium as stipulated by the insurer over a designated period of time.
