Same as term Contribution: principle of equity in property, casualty, and health insurance. When two or more policies apply to the loss, each policy pays its part of the loss, unless its terms provide otherwise. For example, if two policies each insure a risk for $100,000 and there is a $50,000 loss, then each policy (depending on coinsurance requirements) will pay $25,000. In employee benefits, payment made by an employee.
