Actual Cash Value (ACV)

"Actual Cash Value" is the replacement cost of property damaged or destroyed at the time of loss,with deduction for depreciation. Actual cash value cannot exceed the applicable limit of liability shown in the declarations of the policy, nor the amount it would cost to repair or replace such property with material of like kind and quality within a reasonable amount of time after a loss.

Additional Insured

An individual or entity that is not automatically included as an insured under the policy of another, but for whom the named insured's policy provides a certain degree of protection. An endorsement is typically required to affect additional insured status. The named insured's impetus for providing additional insured status to others may be a desire to protect the other party because of a close relationship with that party (e.g., employees or members of an insured club) or to comply with a contractual agreement requiring the named insured to do so (e.g., customers or owners of property leased by the named insured).

Admitted Company

An insurance company that is licensed (admitted) to conduct business within a given state.

Advertising Injury Liability

"Advertising Injury" means injury rising out of an offense committed in the course of your advertising activities, if such injury rises out of libel, slander, defamation, violation of right of privacy, piracy, unfair competition or infringement of copyright, title or slogan.

Aggregate

  1. A limit in an insurance policy stipulating the most it will pay for all covered losses sustained during a specified period of time, usually one year. Aggregate limits are commonly included in liability policies. While not often used in property insurance, aggregates are sometimes included with respect to certain catastrophic exposures, e.g., earthquake and flood.
  2. The dollar amount of reinsurance coverage during one specified period, usually 12 months, for all reinsurance losses sustained under a treaty during such period.

All Risk

A property policy expression now out of fashion. It was used to designate contracts that promised coverage against "all risks of direct physical loss" in contrast to forms that covered for specific, named perils. The word "all" came to be perceived as open to broader interpretation than insurers intended and it was dropped in favor of the promise to cover "risks of physical loss."

Anniversary Date

The anniversary of the original date of issue of a policy as shown in the declarations.

Assumed Liability

Liability assumed under contract or agreement. More commonly known as contractual liability.
