What if it is forced to be a paid up policy earlier?

there are only two ways for a policy to become "paid up" 1. it is a policy that is specificaly designed to be paid up by a certain age or date. you can infer this from the name of the policy, they are usually refered to as a "paid up at 65" or "paid up at 100" or "10 year pay" or "20 year pay" etc. Usually these automaticaly become paid up at the specified date or year and you can not contribute money to them after this point, but they of course stay in force beyond this point. 2. After a policy has been in force for a while you might get a letter or phone call saying that it can be paid up. This is a decision that you make, not the company, they just make the offer. If you are being forced to have it paid up it is most likely a policy that is designed to do so at this point. Or it is a company that has gone under and is being acquired by a new company, then the new company can make you take a paid up policy depending on the rules of the takeover.
