Variable Death Benefit

(redirected from Variable Death Benefits)

Variable Death Benefit

A benefit in some life insurance policies where the designated beneficiary is guaranteed a minimum death benefit and an additional benefit, depending on the performance of some investment portfolio. This allows the beneficiary the possibility of a much larger death benefit that she/he would otherwise receive. However, the minimum benefit can be smaller than normal death benefits paid in other life insurance policies. See also: Variable life insurance.
