Sex


Definition of "Sex"

Demographic designation used in life insurance to calculate premium rates for life and health insurance and annuity contracts. Since females have a longer life expectancy than males of the same age, life insurance premiums for females are lower than for males of the same age. Annuity income for females, by the same token, is lower than for males of the same age. These differences are being contested.
