Cash Surrender Value.

Sometimes people pay an insurance company a sum of money and the insurance company agrees to send them a monthly payment for the rest of their life. If a person changes his mind before the payments start, the insurance company will give them some or all of their money back. This sum that is returned is called the Cash Surrender Value. Whole life insurance policies can also have a cash surrender value.
