Definition of "Personal contract"

Agreement concerning an insured individual, not the insured's property. A property and casualty insurance contract cannot be assigned, since it follows the insured, not the property. For example, a HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE POLICY cannot be transferred with the home upon its sale because the insured no longer has an insurable interest (expectation of monetary loss) in the home. But a LIFE INSURANCE contract can be assigned (for example, to secure a line of credit for a business). Banks use the American Bankers Form for the assignment of life insurance policies pledged as security for a loan
