Insuranceopedia Explains Survivorship Benefit

For instance, a long-term care policy with a survivorship benefit rider allows the surviving insured partner to enjoy their policy without making further premium payments. Upon the death of one of the insured, the insurance company forgives premiums going forward. For retirement benefits, life insurance, and annuity products, a survivorship benefit provides a monthly income to the surviving partner based on the particulars of the policy.
