A company that is fully insured goes to an insurance company and buys insurance. A company that is self insured does not buy insurance and plans to pay any claims out of the companies "pockets". For instance, if you own a home but choose not to buy home insurance, you are self insured if you should have a fire.

Very basically, insurance is a contract (called an insurance policy) between one party (the insurance company) and another (the insured). In the case of life insurance, it is a life that is being insured. In return for the periodic payment of money (called a premium) to the insurance company, the insurance company agrees to pay a sum of money when the insured (whose life is insured) dies. The money is generally paid to the person (or sometimes an entity, such as a charity) that is designated in the insurance policy as the beneficiary. The beneficiary is designated by the insured when the insured buys the insurance but can usually be changed up until the time of death.
