Conversion Privilege

1. In insurance, a policy in which both the premiums and the coverage are guaranteed for a certain number of years, regardless of the health of the insured person. This privilege is operative as long as premiums are paid on time. The insurer may only increase the premium if premiums are increased to the whole class of policyholders.

2. The right of a policyholder to convert a group policy to an individual policy without a health examination. This right is usually exercised after the termination of employment, and the premium is determined by the policyholder's attained age.
