Nonforfeiture Values

Nonforfeiture Values

Definition

In whole life insurance policies, benefits that accrue to the insured when the policy lapses from nonpayment of premium. These benefits are usually either an amount of paid-up term life insurance or a cash surrender value. All states have enacted nonforfeiture laws that require that whole life insurance policies specify the nonforfeiture values in a schedule in the policy.
