Portability

The character of benefits that may be carried from a previous job to the next.

Portability

The ability to take one's benefits, particularly health insurance, from one job to another. Some U.S. states require health insurance companies to offer portability. It exists to protect people from the possibility that they will lose their health insurance and be unable to acquire a new policy because of a pre-existing condition that develops between acquiring the first policy and looking for a second.
