Life Insurance Policy
Your life insurance policy is a contract between your life insurance company and you. Depending on which type of Life Insurance Policy you opt for, as long as you continue to pay a premium, it guarantees that the company will pay a certain amount of money (the face value of the policy or coverage amount, called the
death benefit) to your estate or chosen beneficiary, upon your death.
Limited Pay Policy

If you have just entered into a lease agreement, please take a moment to read and understand this information. Contractual leasing agreements vary greatly from company to company. Your lease agreement is a contract which you will probably be held to by law.
Often leasing contracts hold you responsible for damage or theft to the car -- far beyond the actual cash value of the vehicle. Insurance companies offer comprehensive and collision coverages on an actual cash value basis only, as determined by NADA or similar books. Therefore, it is possible to be legally responsible to the leasing company for more than the amount the insurance company will pay you in the event of a loss. The balance, if any, will be your responsibility.
Please be very careful when entering into any contractual agreement, and fully understand your responsibilities stemming from such.
Leasehold Interest Coverage
Leasehold Interest insurance provides coverage for a tenant in the event his or her lease is terminated. The lease may be terminated due to (1) a clause in the lease specifying that the lease is terminated in the event of property damage causing the premises to be unavailable for tenancy, or (2) condemnation of the leased premises. It is a form of "time element" coverage that serves to provide coverage for the difference between the old rental and a new, likely more expensive rental.
