Accelerated benefits

In some life 

Insurance

 policies, benefits available before death, in such events as 

Long-term

, catastrophic or terminal illness. This 

Benefit

 first became available when companies 

Offering

 viatical settlements purchased the life 

Insurance

 policies of terminally ill individuals from the 

Insurance

 companies which issued the policies. After extracting a portion of the value of the 

Policy

 for costs and 

Profit

, these companies offered the 

Remainder

 of the death 

Benefit

 to terminally ill 

Policy

 holders. 

Insurance

 companies have different rules about how much 

Money

 can be extracted and how 

Close

 to death the holder must be to receive benefits early. The 

Remainder

 of the value of the policy, minus interest 

Charge

, is awarded to the beneficiaries upon the death of the holder. also called 

Living benefits

.
