Temporary Insurance Agreement
When an applicant has a limited period of time, he or she does not receive a type of receipt. However, the fixed-term insurance policy (AAT) provides the applicant with insurance for a certain period of time until the policy is issued. This essentially means that the beneficiary, if he dies during this period, would receive a death benefit. When insurance offers term life insurance, it is usually subject to certain qualifications or conditions. The most common criteria are age, fundamental questions about your health and your medical history. Term insurance costs nothing beyond this one-time payment, even if it took the insurance a few weeks to a few months to decide on your insurance coverage. The premium paid for temporary coverage is essentially a down payment. Once your policy has been approved, the payment you made for term insurance will be applied to your first month`s life insurance premium. If you decide not to use the policy or if the insurance company refuses coverage, your initial premium for temporary coverage will be refunded.
Term insurance is offered by a mandatory contract called a temporary insurance contract, short for TIA. The TIA provides immediate life insurance coverage to the applicant. Once formally in force, the TIA effectively binds the insurance company so that, where a right to life of the insured person is invoked, the insurance company pays the amount of coverage, even if the full insurance is not yet taken out. This is called short-term or pre-medary insurance. This may be the case when an applicant needs immediate coverage, but wishes to defer the issuance of permanent insurance for a period of three to six months. Term life insurance refers to the temporary coverage offered by the insurance company with which you filed your application and which is offered to cover the length of its insurance process. This is short-term coverage that is available to you until your policy is approved and comes into effect. Such conditional insurance generally applies only to life insurance claims, but some insurance companies also make it available for health and occupational disability insurance claims.
The agreement exposes the insurer to some risk, as the TIA temporarily offers coverage to an applicant during the assessment or insurance process, while the applicant awaits the outcome of his eligibility conditions for the purchase of life insurance. For example, when an applicant receives a “temporary insurance policy” for his or her life insurance application during the insurance policy, the applicant receives immediate life insurance coverage during the insurance process.
