Definition of "Acts"

Performance of a deed or function. Certain acts are prohibited from coverage in insurance. For example, if the insured commits a felony, the insured's beneficiary cannot collect under the accidental death provision of a life insurance policy. Intentional destruction of an insured's property by the insured or someone hired by an insured to destroy the property is a prohibited act under property insurance, and an insurance policy will not indemnify the insured for losses incurred.
