Value in life insurance policies that entitle the insured to these choices:

  1. to relinquish the policy for its CASH SURRENDER VALUE. (Note that in the beginning years the cash value may be minimal because ofexpenses such as agent's commission, premium tax, and the cost of putting the policy on the insurance company's books.)
  2. to take reduced paid-up insurance instead of the cash surrender value.
  3. to take EXTENDED TERM INSURANCE for the full face amount instead of the cash surrender value.
  4. to borrow from the company, using the cash value as collateral.
Each policy provides a table illustrating the first 20 years of its guaranteed cash values.
