What does matured policy mean in life insurance?
A matured policy is one that specifies a date on which the face value of the policy will be paid to the policyowner if the insured is still alive. The maturity date (and hence, the status of the policy becoming matured) will occur either at the end of a stated term, or when the insured reaches a specified age.

It means you want to cancel the policy. If there is cash value in the policy, surrender charges will be deducted from the cash value and you will get the remaining balance.
Contacting a life settlement company will be one of the steps in the process, but before so doing, there is a due diligence process that you must employ. The value of the life… insurance policy that you wish to sell may vary, depending upon the investor(s) to whom it is offered (through a life settlement company). Therefore, consult several before making your decision. Any life settlement company with which you deal should be licensed (usually by the state insurance regulatory authority in your state), so be sure to contact it before seriously considering dealing with anyone. For years, there have been scams in this area, so you do not want to become a victim. Lastly, make sure that selling the policy is what you really want to do and is in your long-term best interests and that of your family. While the transaction may give you fairly quick cash, it also denies your family or other designated beneficiaries of the policy the value that you sought to achieve for them. If there have been adverse developments in your health since you bought the policy, you may be uninsurable now, such that the policy that you are considering selling cannot be replaced. Additionally, even if your health is good, if you have had the policy for a long time, it might also only be replaceable at a much higher premium than you may be able to afford.
In the context of a life insurance policy, it stands for Certificate of Death. It is significant because the occurrence that traiggers the insurer's duty to pay is the death o…f the insured. The Certiificate of Death is the official documentation of death which will satisfy that requirement of the policy.
You have two options. Contact the insurance agent who sold you the insurance policy and ask him to get you a duplicate copy. He will advise you on the formalities and get a co…py. Alternately you can contact your insurance provider (company) and submit a request for a duplicate copy. In either case, a letter from you confirming that the original policy document was lost needs to be provided. A police missing complaint may be asked in some cases too.
There are two basic types of life insurance policies - Term and Permanent. Term life insurance usually provides protection for a period of 1-30 years, provided that premiums a…re timely paid and the policy does not lapse. The standard terms (duration of coverage) are 10, 15, 20, or 30 years. Term life insurance is "pure protection", in that there is no investment or cash build up within the policy. If you outlive the term of your policy, your coverage expires. Stated otherwise, it is the equivalent of "renting" rather than "buying" the protection (as in the case of whole life, where there is "equity" accumulation by way of cash value). Permanent life insurance usually costs substantially more than term life insurance, depending on your age and health factors. A mix of the two types of insurance is often a good idea to account for various life stages. Because term insurance has become relatively inexpensive, many recommend "loading up" on it when one has a young family and when the need for the benefits, in case of untimely death, is greatest. Term insurance can be purchased with a variety of options, including the option to convert all or part of it to whole life at various point in time. While the premium will increase with the conversion, ordinarily it will be done without regard to then-current health condition. Another fairly common option is waiver of premium, which essentially provides that future premium payments will be waived when the insured becomes disabled (as "disabled" is defined in the policy). There will be an additional premium for these options.
Answer Mature. In insurance, a policy matures when its face amount becomes payable. This could occur upon the death of the insured, or in some forms of insurance such a…s endowments, as of a specified date.
It usually means that you have pledged or sold the end of life benefit from the policy to guarantee an obligation such as a loan. Otherwise, there is not much difference… between an assignment and a beneficiary; You die, and the policy benefit gets divided up between the beneficiaries and assignees. Some insurance carriers don't make a distinction between the two. Assignment rules vary among insurance carriers, so if you are being asked to make an assignment, you may want to ask your carrier first. In any event, the carrier will require that you make the assignment or beneficiary change yourself; a third party can't do it.
The policy is no longer in effect. Any cash values have been used. You should be able to reinstate the policy within a period of 6 months by paying all premiums due from… the lapse date to the current time. Additionally, you will have to provide a statement of current health conditions on an insurance company form. If the the policy is still in the "grace period," (it has been less than 30 or 60 days since the last premium due date) you should not have to provide a statement of current health conditions - just pay the back premiums.
A life insurance policy lapses when you stop paying premiums, or if cash value depletes and no more premiums are being able to be paid from the cash value. Usually, there are …30 or 60 days of grace period before lapsing.
If you have reached the age where your whole life policy matures, call your life insurance agent or the insurance company. They owe you a check. If you are talking about the e…nd of a term policy, you are owed nothing.
Answer . When an insurance policy's guaranteed cash value equals the initial death benefit, it is said to "endow" or mature. Whole Life contracts typically endow at the ins…ured's age 100. The most recent mortality tables for life insurance (2001 CSO - Commissioners Standard Ordinary) would endow at the insured's age 121. However the Society of Actuaries 2001 CSO Maturity Age Task Force recommended that insurance policies issued under the new mortality table assume all contracts will pay out in some form by age 100. Some policies have earlier endowment periods. These typically pay the face amount upon death or attaining a certain age or number of years, whichever is first. Life insurance is intended to help make a loss bearable. It is a mechanism for managing risk and should not generally be considered an investment.
The life insurance policy has a maturing date that determines the time it takes for a policy to accumulate the amount of money essential for the policy. An unmatured life …insurance policy is one that hasn't yet reached the end of its policy.
