Typically it is called "Net Cash Surrender Value". This is the amount of cash value in the policy accumulation account minus any outstanding loans etc. But it is typically referred to as "Net surrender Value" or "Net Cash Surrender Value". Get a good agent and he can explain.

You will receive the cash value minus the surrender charges, not the face value of the policy.

Anything you pull out above and beyond your base, is taxable. Base is the money you have put into it, your premiums that you paid.

If you take a loan against the policy, the amount you receive is not considered taxable. However, if you later surrender (cash-in) the policy, the amount you received in the loan and in the surrender will then be considered taxable income.

The value accrued at the time of surrender of the policy is called cash surrender value of the policy. Generally, before completion of three year period, no life policy can be surredered and hence question of cash surrender values does not arise.

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.

You can contact the life insurance policy and request the necessary forms that you will need to fill out and send back to the insurance company in order to surrender the policy. You may want to ask how much the cash value is that you will receive from the policy upon surrendering the coverage.

There is generally not a special form used for a life insurance policy issued to a physician. That said, if you are concerned with the cash surrender value, a whole life insurance policy (rather than a term life insurance policy) is implicated. The cash surrender value changes (usually increases) as the policy matures. The amount of the cash surrender value is shown on a schedule on the declarations page of the policy. The declarations page is one of the first pages of the policy which identifies the insured, the policy number, the amount of policy benefits and other information.

The insurance policy surrender charges vary from policy to policy. While surrender charges against ulip policies are much on the higher side, whereas the same is low in endowment policies. You can visit the Insurance Company's webiste for a glimpse of the various charges.

Once the company receives your signed surrender form it should take 7 to 10 business days to receive a check.

Yes. The alternative was either surrender or war.

Since you paid it with after tax $$$ any money you receive would not be taxable, UNTIL it's more than what you paid into it. In that case, it might be better to take loans.

That depends on whether or not you wish to continue having the life insurance in force at the insured's death. If you wish to have the life insurance in force at death, then it is best to borrow some of the cash value. If you surrender the policy, then you receive all the remaining cash value (less any surrender charges), but the death benefit is no longer there. Also the cash value received MAY be taxable.

If you surrender it you are in effect canceling the policy. They will issue you a check for the cash value in the insurance and you will no longer have the protection. Alternatives? Maybe take a loan on the cash value which you would have to pay back. If you are over 52 you should look into selling the policy as you will get more than the cash value. I can help you with that. In any case I caution you on losing a policy like this, consider carefully. 4LifeGuild

The surrender (voluntary termination) of a life insurance policy involves the payment by the insurer, prior to the death of the insured, of the accumulated cash value of a whole life policy. The cash value is the "savings element" of a whole life policy. Upon surrender, the insurer pays the accumulated cash value less any surrender charges specified in the policy. Reinstatement of the same policy is generally not available after surrender. Instead, the insured must reapply for coverage and meet then-prevailing underwriting standards for his/her current age and health status.

a policy can be paid out upon death of the life insured, maturity (if the policy has a term and is with profit) or via cash surrender (for a lower value) as long as the policy is with profit and is not a assurance term policy

once a policy is binder by the agent, the client may not change the conditions of policy

You could submit a claim but that usually means dying first. Short of dying, you could surrender the policy for its surrender value. The surrender value depends on many things but it starts a zero when the policy is bought and grows to the face amount as the policy ages. The hardcopy of the policy should show a face amount but will likely also include a schedule for the surrender value. If the hardcopy of the policy can't be located, a call to the company is in order.

yes, we can surrender a life insurance policy. If we surrender the policy means we can surrender by its cashvalue. If we surrender for the entire cashvalue then it is called full surrender. If we surrender for a part of its cash value then it is called partial surrender. Any way the cash value gets reduced. It effects the face amount. so the face amount also gets reduced. Hence no of units gets reduced.

When you want to surrender your endowment policy you must have paid premium for at least three years. But there exists another form, the special or cash surrender, which has other conditions.

The company pays the surrender value and have no further obligations to the policy owner under Cash surrender

After your policy has covered three year's period bench mark, your postal life policy can be surrendered on request,as prescribed in the policy bond.

It usually talks about the cash value or surrender value of a permanent policy. It could also reflect the death benefit of any policy.

What are the benefits of universal life insurance, and what are the possible drawbacks of this type of policy

Add up the amount of money paid into the policy since policy application or inception. Subtract from that amount the "surrender value". If the total is a positive number, that is the amount of your profit. If the total is a negative number, that is the amount of your loss. If you have a profit, the profit is taxable. If you don't surrender the policy and the policy pays a death benefit, the death benefit is typically not taxable.
