Assignment

« Back to Glossary Index

The partial or complete transfer by a person of his right or interest in a policy to another person. The ability of a person to assign a policy may be limited by law or individual circumstances. An assignment must be written and signed by the policyholder whose interest is being transferred. It must also be properly attested, with the original or a certified copy being filed with the associated insurance company. A valid assignment so filed is binding on said company.
