Glossary of Insurance and Risk Management Terms

The Glossary of Insurance and Risk Management Terms was first published by IRMI in 1978 to help those within and outside the insurance industry to communicate effectively. It has been continuously updated and expanded since the original publication and, with definitions of more than 3,200 risk and insurance terms, is probably the most comprehensive and up to date property and casualty insurance glossary or dictionary.

Use the index of defined risk management and insurance terms, the expandable table of contents on the left, or the search engine to find the insurance or risk management definition you need.

Also be sure to check out the insurance acronyms and abbreviations where nearly 1,000 insurance abbreviations are defined.

Your use of this glossary ratifies your acceptance of the Terms of Use.
