Life Insurance

Life insurance is a contract between an insured (insurance policy holder) and an insurer, where the insurer promises to pay a designated beneficiary a sum of money (the "benefits") 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.
