It is important to understand that the policy owner or beneficiary may be different to the Insured Person, however in such circumstances an insurable interest has to be determined, such as a bank’s interest in the Insured Person following the provision of a loan, or the interest of a dependent spouse on the earnings of a partner for the financial security of the family.
