Double Recovery


Definition of "Double recovery"

Payments in excess of the value of the loss a prohibited practice. When an insured has more than one policy covering a risk, the full value cannot be collected from each policy if a loss occurs. The most that can be collected is each policy's pro rata share of the loss. For example, a home is insured under two policies of $100,000 each. If there is a fire loss of $100,000, the most that can be collected from each policy is $50,000.
