Supplementary notes

A lapse is the cessation of a privilege, right or policy due to time or inaction, so a lapse of a privilege due to inaction occurs when the party that is to receive the benefit does not fulfill the conditions or requirements set forth by a contract or agreement.

When a policy has lapsed, the benefits and everything stated in the contract no longer remains active. When policy holders stop paying premiums and when the account value of the policy has already been exhausted, the policy lapses.

Thus, the lapse ratio represents the percentage of policies that were not renewed, and thus have lapsed in coverage. Lapsed policies are not the same as canceled policies.
