Contract that may or may not provide more in benefits than premiums paid. For example, with only one premium payment on a property policy an insured can receive hundreds of thousands of dollars should the protected entity be destroyed. On the other hand, an insurance company can collect more in premiums than it ever pays out in benefits, as in a fire insurance policy under which the protected property is either damaged or destroyed. Most insurance contracts are aleatory in nature.
