A life insurance policy may have cash value if it is a "whole life insurance policy". This is a kind of life insurance, distinguished from "term" life insurance, that accumulates cash value for the period that it is in force and premiums are paid. Each premium paid goes to pay the cost of "indemnity" (the death benefit), the administrative costs incurred by the insurer, with all or a portion of the remainder going into the cash value. The cash value element of the policy is SOMEWHAT like a savings account within the policy. It grows slowly at first but faster as the policy matures. When a sufficient amount of cash value has accumulated, policy loans from the cash value are usually allowed per the terms of the policy. The loans bear interest at a rate provided for by the policy. Term life insurance does not accumulate cash value.
