Loss Payable Clause
- A provision found in some insurance policies that authorizes the insurance company to make payments to a third party, instead of the policyholder or the policyholder's beneficiary, after an insured event. A loss payable clause is commonly used in insurance policies covering assets where a third party has an interest. Mortgage insurance, for example. Also known as a "loss payee clause."
