Nonforfeiture Values

Nonforfeiture Values

Definition

Nonforfeiture Values — 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.
