Insurance

A promise of compensation for specific potential future losses in 

Exchange

 for a periodic payment. 

Insurance

 is designed to protect the financial well-being of an individual, company or other entity in the case of unexpected loss. Some forms of 

Insurance

 are required by law, while others are optional. Agreeing to the 

Terms

 of an 

Insurance

 policy creates a 

Contract

 between the 

Insured

 and the insurer. In 

Exchange

 for payments from the 

Insured

 (called premiums), the 

Insurer

 agrees to pay the 

Policy

 holder a sum of 

Money

 upon the occurrence of a specific event. In most cases, the 

Policy

 holder pays part of the loss (called the deductible), and the 

Insurer

 pays the rest. Examples include 

Car

 insurance, 

Health insurance

Disability insurance

Life insurance

, and business insurance.
