The face value/amount of insurance is how much your policy is worth. It means the amount of coverage you bought in the policy. The face amount is the primary factor in determining the monthly premiums that will be owed. The higher the face amount, the higher the premiums will be.

Face value can be found in the statement of benefits. Face Amount can also be called Amount of Insurance, Coverage Amount, or Sum Insured. There are several things that can cause it to change.

What is the face amount in life insurance?

The face amount of life insurance is how much your policy is worth, and how much life insurance money is paid out when the insured dies. In life insurance, it is also known as death benefits. The exact face amount in a life insurance policy will depend on how much coverage we bought. In life insurance, the policy’s face value should be high enough to ensure the family’s financial protection.

There are many events that are responsible to change the face value of a policy with the terms of ups and downs.

  • When the cash value grows for a policy then face value also increases.
  • When any policyholder took any unpaid loan from the policy balance the value of the face amount decreased.
  • And another potential change in the face value will be addressed in the term of the policy.
  • If your insurer finds out about any misinformation for your insurance application, they can reduce the face amount of your policy or not pay out any money whatsoever.
