Insurance Definition: ACCELERATED DEATH BENEFITS

By Compuquotes Team on March 27th, 2008

ACCELERATED DEATH BENEFITS:

Definition:

  • A life insurance policy option that provides policy proceeds to insured individuals over their lifetimes, in the event of a terminal illness. This is in lieu of a traditional policy that pays beneficiaries after the insured's death. Such benefits kick in if the insured becomes terminally ill, needs extreme medical intervention, or must reside in a nursing home. The payments made while the insured is living are deducted from any death benefits paid to beneficiaries.
