What Does Waiver of Restoration Premium Mean?
A waiver of restoration premium is a provision in an insurance policy that allows the policyholder who receives benefits from a claim to continue with the same level of coverage prior to the payout. Without a waiver of restoration premium, the policyholder may be able to pay an additional premium to enjoy the same level of coverage.

In case restoring coverage is not possible, policyholders could purchase secondary or supplemental policies to reduce the risk of a lapse or lack of coverage if the primary policy reaches its limits.
