assumption endorsement

Popular Terms
An addition to an insurance policy that protects the policyholder in the event that the insurance company becomes insolvent. Under this endorsement, any part of a claim covered by a reinsurer is paid directly to the policyholder. This provision "cuts through" the usual route of a payment, in which the payment goes through the insolvent insurance company before reaching the policyholder. Also called cut through endorsement.
