Perfecting a security interest means that you have taken all the necessary legal steps and filed all the required papers to establish a lien against someone's property. If you borrow money against your house and sign a promissory note, the lender's security interest is perfected when the mortage or deed of trust is recorded.

Does a security deposit collect interest?

Difference between pari passu and hypothecation?

Hypothecation is a kind of non-possessory security interest created normally in favour of a lender for securing the obligation of the person who has availed any financial assistance from the Bank. If the borrower creates security interest on the same set of property in favour of more lenders, the security interest of the lenders shall rank according to the chronological order in which it is created, unless the lenders otherwise agree. If the value of the security is sufficient to cover all obligations of the borrower to many lenders, the lenders may agree inter-se (usually at the request of the Borrower) that the security interest of all the lenders shall have the same ranking or priority. Then such security is called pari passu ranking security interest.

Filing a financing statement on the policy is not required. Revised Article 9 does not apply to security interests in life insurance policies. See Revised Art. 9, Section 9-109(d)(8). The security interest in the policy is perfected by filing the assignment with the insurance company. OCU Law Professor Alvin Harrell, in his book "The Law of Personal Property Secured Transactions," suggests that "it may also be desirable to obtain possession of the policy itself."
