Insurance dividend

Insurance dividend

Money paid annually to policyholders participating in cash value life insurance policies.

Insurance Dividend

An annual fee an insurance company pays to whole life policyholders. The amount of the dividend is determined by the company's board of directors and is not guaranteed. This allows whole life policyholders access to at least part of their benefit before death. The insurance dividend can be taken in cash, but is almost always applied as a discount against future premium payments. This is a distinct advantage of whole life policies, though some analysts believe that insurance dividends do not make up for the expense of whole life insurance compared to term insurance.
