Life Insurance Dividend

A life insurance dividend is money distributed to life insurance policyholders when the profits of the issuing insurance company exceed a certain threshold.

In most cases, dividends are only paid out to permanent life insurance (“mixed life insurance” in Switzerland) policyholders. Dividends may be cashed out or added to equity in a life insurance policy.
