Cash value of whole life insurance is referred to as the "Cash Surrender Value". The cash surrender value is money the policyholder is supposed to receive from the insurance company when surrendering the whole life insurance policy with cash value. The cash surrender value amount due is the sum of the cash value stated in the whole life insurance policy minus any surrender charge and any outstanding loans and interest due on the loans.

Where does the cash value come from in life insurance?

Initially, it is important to understand that cash value is a feature of whole life insurance only, not term life. The simple answer to the question is that cash value comes from premiums paid. The structure of a whole life policy is such that a portion of the premium is allocated to the actuarially determined cost of "protection", and the rest is allocated to an account that develops cash value. You can analogize cash value to a savings element within the policy, but it does differ in important ways from true savings and should not substitute for it. Whether whole life or term, life insurance should be purchased principally for the financial protection that it provides to survivors.
