Usually term insurance for one year added to a basic life insurance policy. In effect, this increases or decreases the face amount of the basic policy to reflect cost-of-living changes as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). This rider can also be used in conjunction with a disability income policy in which the income benefit is adjusted to reflect fluctuations in the CPI.
