Lost Policy Release

Lost Policy Release

Definition

Lost Policy Release — a statement signed by the named insured releasing the insurer from all liability under a lost or mislaid contract of insurance in cases in which the insured wishes to cancel the policy. At one time, many insurance policies required that the original policy be returned to the insurer to effect cancellation, and a lost policy release served in place of the original policy.
