iv. What is an assignment of a policy? Is it allowed on all Insurance Plans?
An assignment transfers the rights, title and interest of the assignor to the assignee. Assignment is possible on all types of policies except pension policies and Married Women Property Act (MWP).
There are two types of assignments:
Absolute Assignment: In this type of assignment, all rights, title and interest of the assignor in the policy are transferred to the assignee without reversion to the former or his estate in any event. The assignee becomes the title owner of the policy and can deal with the policy in any manner he sees fit; he no longer has to take the consent of the assignor.
Conditional Assignment: In this type of assignment, the interest in the policy automatically reverts to the person insured on the occurrence of the specified condition. For example, a conditional assignment can provide for reversion when the assignee predeceases the policy owner or when the policy owner survives till the date of maturity or on the loan being repaid.
