Transferable Insurance Policy
- A life insurance policy that gives the policyholder the option to sell the policy to a third party. A transferable insurance policy can be used in a viatical settlement, life settlement, or spin-life arrangement whereby a life insurance policyholder makes a third party the beneficiary of the death benefit in exchange for a payment or series of payments larger than the life insurance policy's cash surrender value.
