What is the difference between face value and cash surrender value of life insurance?

Face value typically refers to the death benefit of the policy (i.e. how much your family would receive if you were to die). Cash surrender value is the amount of money that has accumulated (tax deferred) inside the policy and is the amount of money the owner would receive (before taxes) if s/he were to cancel the policy. Cash surrender value is different from plain old "cash value" or "accumulated value" in that most insurance policies have surrender charges for 10 to 20 years that reduce the total "cash value" or "accumulated value" down to the cash SURRENDER value.

Difference between present value and net present value?

Present value is the result of discounting future amounts to the present. For example, a cash amount of $10,000 received at the end of 5 years will have a present value of $6,210 if the future amount is discounted at 10% compounded annually.Net present value is the present value of the cash inflows minus the present value of the cash outflows. For example, let's assume that an investment of $5,000 today will result in one cash receipt of $10,000 at the end of 5 years. If the investor requires a 10% annual return compounded annually, the net present value of the investment is $1,210. This is the result of the present value of the cash inflow $6,210 (from above) minus the present value of the $5,000 cash outflow. (Since the $5,000 cash outflow occurred at the present time, its present value is $5,000.)
