Accelerated Option

Accelerated Option

A clause in some insurance contracts allowing a policyholder to access some of the benefits of the policy before he/she otherwise would be able to do so. Very often, the accelerated option allows the holder of a whole life insurance policy to use the savings portion to pay off the remainder of the premiums in a single, lump sum.
