Provision that the equity of an insured in a life insurance policy cannot be forfeited. There are four benefits a policyholder can select under the option: cash surrender value, extended term insurance, loan value, and paid-up insurance. If none is elected, a clause in the policy will stipulate the option that automatically goes into effect, usually extended term insurance.
