Addition to a life insurance policy stating that when an insured becomes disabled for at least six months, premiums due are waived. Depending on the rider, the insured may begin to receive a monthly income (usually 1 % of the face value of the policy), or only the premium may be waived. The length of time that income payments will continue depends on the definition of disability in the policy. During the time that premiums are waived, the life insurance policy stays in force, so that if the insured dies, the beneficiary receives the face value of the policy. Cash values continue to build, and if the policy is participating, dividends continue to be paid.
