Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Returning a policyholder to the same economic position prior to a loss is called:

    • A.

      insurable interest

    • B.

      Indemnity

    • C.

      Replacement

    • D.

      Benefits restoration

    Correct Answer
    B. Indemnity
    Explanation
    Indemnity refers to the principle of an insurance policy where the insurer compensates the policyholder for the actual financial loss suffered due to an insured event. It aims to restore the policyholder to the same economic position they were in before the loss occurred. This means that the insured is not meant to profit from the insurance claim but rather be reimbursed for the actual amount of the loss. Therefore, indemnity is the correct answer as it accurately describes the concept of returning a policyholder to their pre-loss economic position.

    Correct Answer
    C. At the time the policy is applied for
    Explanation
    Insurable interest refers to the financial or legal interest that a person has in the subject matter of an insurance policy. This interest must be present at the time the policy is applied for in order for the policy to be valid. It ensures that the person obtaining the insurance has a legitimate reason to protect against potential losses. Therefore, at the time the policy is applied for is the correct answer as it signifies the importance of having insurable interest at the beginning of the insurance process.

Since the company is not domestic to the state where it is conducting business, it is considered an alien insurer.

Unlike an independent agent, who is not tied to any specific company, a captive agent is bound to sell only the products of the company that hired them. This arrangement allows the company to have more control over the agent's sales efforts and ensures that the agent promotes the company's products exclusively.

    • B.

      On an excess only basis

    • C.

      On members of the faculty only

    Explanation
    Facultative reinsurance is negotiated on an individual basis. This means that each reinsurance contract is negotiated separately and tailored to the specific needs of the ceding company. Unlike automatic reinsurance, which covers all risks meeting predetermined criteria, facultative reinsurance allows for more flexibility and customization. It allows the ceding company to select which risks they want to cede and negotiate the terms and conditions of each individual contract. This individualized approach ensures that each risk is assessed and priced accordingly, providing more precise coverage for the ceding company.

    • A.

      Apparent authority

    • B.

      Express authority

    • C.

      Presumed authority

    • D.

      Implied authority

    Correct Answer
    D. Implied authority
    Explanation
    Implied authority refers to the authority that is not explicitly stated in a contract but is reasonably assumed or inferred based on the agent's actions and the nature of their role. In this scenario, even though the agent's contract does not specifically grant them the authority to collect premiums after the first premium, they continue to do so on a regular basis. This suggests that the agent has implied authority to collect premiums beyond the first one.

      Limited policy

    • C.

      Special risk policy

    • D.

      Reimbursement policy

    Correct Answer
    D. Reimbursement policy
    Explanation
    If benefits from a hospital expense policy are paid to the insured, it is considered to be a reimbursement policy. This means that the insured pays for the hospital expenses out of pocket and then submits a claim to the insurance company for reimbursement. The insurance company will then review the claim and pay the insured back for the covered expenses. This is different from a service policy, limited policy, or special risk policy, which may provide direct payment to the hospital or have specific limitations or conditions on the benefits provided.

      Holding

    Correct Answer
    A. Assessment
    Explanation

This type of company operates on the principle of mutual insurance, where policyholders contribute to a common fund that is used to cover losses. If the company experiences losses, it can assess its insureds to make up for the shortfall. This allows the company to distribute the financial burden of losses among its policyholders, ensuring that no individual policyholder bears the full cost of a loss.

This ensures that policyholders are protected and their claims are honored even if the insurance company goes bankrupt.

    • A.

      M.I.B.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The Company Underwriter relies on important information from multiple sources to determine insurability. The M.I.B. (Medical Information Bureau) provides valuable data about an applicant's medical history, which helps assess the risk involved. The inspection report provides information about the condition of the property or assets being insured, enabling the underwriter to evaluate potential risks. Lastly, the applicant's statements on the application form provide additional details about their personal circumstances and any potential risks. Considering all of these sources together allows the underwriter to make a comprehensive assessment of insurability.

      Management control rests with the board of directors

    • B.

      Stockholders advance money to organize the company

    • C.

      Policy holders share in the profits and losses

    • D.

      Stockholders share in the profits and losses

    Correct Answer
    C. Policy holders share in the profits and losses
    Explanation
    In a Stock Company, policy holders do not share in the profits and losses. This is because policy holders are typically individuals who purchase insurance policies from the company, and their relationship with the company is different from that of stockholders. While stockholders are the owners of the company and have a financial stake in its success, policy holders are customers who pay premiums for insurance coverage. Therefore, policy holders do not have a direct involvement in the profits and losses of the company.

    • A.

      The fewer the number of units be considered, the greater the chance of a correct prediction

    • B.

      The greater the number of units being considered, the lower the chances of a correct prediction

    • C.

      The larger number of insureds that die during a given year, the lower the premium

    • D.

      The greater the number of units being considered, the greater the chance for a correct prediction

    Correct Answer
    D. The greater the number of units being considered, the greater the chance for a correct prediction
    Explanation
    The law of Large Numbers states that as the sample size or number of units being considered increases, the more accurate and reliable the predictions or outcomes will be. This is because with a larger sample size, the results are more likely to represent the true population characteristics, reducing the influence of random variation. Therefore, the greater the number of units being considered, the greater the chance for a correct prediction.

This allows applicants to make an informed decision about sharing their personal information and ensures transparency in the insurance process.

      Surplus

    • B.

      Dividend

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. Reserve
    Explanation
    Insurance companies use reserves as an accounting measure to cover their liabilities to policyholders. Reserves are funds set aside by insurers to ensure that they have enough money to pay out claims and fulfill their obligations to policyholders. These reserves act as a financial cushion and provide a safety net for the company in case of unexpected losses or a high number of claims. By maintaining adequate reserves, insurance companies can demonstrate their financial stability and ability to meet their policyholders' needs.

      Individual life insurance

    • B.

      Consumer reports

    • C.

      Individual health insurance

    • D.

      Medical information bureau (M.I.B)

    Correct Answer
    D. Medical information bureau (M.I.B)
    Explanation
    The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is a federal law that regulates the collection, dissemination, and use of consumer credit information. It ensures that consumer reporting agencies maintain accurate and fair information. While the FCRA applies to consumer reports, individual life insurance, and individual health insurance, it does not apply to the Medical Information Bureau (M.I.B). The M.I.B is a specialized database that collects and shares medical information about individuals for the purpose of underwriting insurance policies. As it focuses on medical information rather than credit information, it falls outside the scope of the FCRA.

This regular examination helps ensure that the insurer is operating in a sound and responsible manner, protecting the interests of policyholders and maintaining the stability of the insurance market.

This is likely to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, as well as to facilitate any potential audits or investigations that may arise in the future. Keeping advertising files for this duration allows the insurer to maintain a record of their advertising activities and ensures that they have access to relevant documentation if needed.

      The first initial premium

    Correct Answer
    B. The first initial premium
    Explanation
    In an insurance contract, the consideration from the applicant consists of the application and the first initial premium. This means that in order for the insurance contract to be valid, the applicant must submit both the completed application form and make the first premium payment. These two components are essential for the insurance company to assess the risk and provide coverage to the insured individual. Without the initial premium payment, the contract cannot be fully executed and the insurance coverage cannot begin.

    • C.

      Provides credit reports

    • D.

      Ensures that the agent collect accurate information from the applicant

    Correct Answer
    C. Provides credit reports
    Explanation
    The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) does not provide credit reports. Instead, it regulates how credit reporting agencies collect, use, and disclose consumer credit information. The FCRA specifies when an applicant must be notified about an investigation, ensures that information obtained is properly used and kept confidential, and requires that agents collect accurate information from the applicant. However, it does not directly provide credit reports to consumers.

    • C.

      Insurer

    • D.

      Company

    Correct Answer
    B. Fiduciary
    Explanation
    When an agent accepts an insured's payment, they are acting as a fiduciary. A fiduciary is a person who is entrusted with the responsibility to act in the best interest of another party. In this case, the agent is entrusted with the insured's payment and is expected to handle it responsibly and in the insured's best interest. This includes ensuring that the payment is properly allocated, managing any claims or benefits, and providing accurate information and advice to the insured. The agent's role as a fiduciary is essential in maintaining trust and protecting the insured's financial interests.

    • A.

      An offer and acceptance

    • B.

      An offer only

    • C.

      An acceptance only

    • D.

      Good faith by at least one party

    Correct Answer
    A. An offer and acceptance
    Explanation
    For a contract to be a binding agreement, there must be an offer and acceptance. An offer is a proposal made by one party to another, indicating their willingness to enter into a contract. Acceptance is the agreement by the other party to the terms of the offer. Both offer and acceptance are essential elements to create a legally enforceable contract. Without an offer, there would be no terms for the other party to accept, and without acceptance, there would be no agreement between the parties. Therefore, both offer and acceptance are necessary for a contract to be binding.

    • C.

      Embezzlement

    • D.
