Life Insurance Policy Reinstatement, also known as Policy Revival, is the ability to bring back, or reinstate a policy which has previously lapsed. In essence, this brings a dead policy back to life.
Whilst reinstatement can happen at any time through mutual consent between the policyholder and the insurance company, a policy reinstatement benefit ensures that the policyholder has the right to revive a lapsed policy under specific provisions.
How Does Life Insurance Reinstatement Work?
In the event that a lapsed Hong Kong Life Insurance policy contains a Reinstatement benefit the policyholder can revive the plan and continue receiving coverage.
This is possible as long as the policyholder exercises his right of reinstatement within a specific time period, normally within 5 years of the lapse, and can only be applied in the event of a lapse and not surrender. Furthermore, a number of conditions may be imposed by the insurance company including these factors listed here. If the policyholder can satisfy all the relevant requirements, the policy may be brought back into force under the same conditions as it provided at purchase.
