Conversion Privilege


  • A provision available in some insurance policies where the insurer agrees to renew, update, or convert the policy at the end of its term with level premiums (for an agreed to amount of time) and without a medical examination, regardless of the policyholder's health status. For example, most term life insurance policies include a conversion privilege option, giving the policyholder the opportunity to convert to a permanent life insurance policy without any medical exams.
