What is Premium Finance?

Premium financing is an arrangement to fund life insurance premiums by borrowing funds from a commercial lender instead of paying them out of pocket. The primary cost is the loan interest, which can be paid in cash or accrued in some instances. The loan is collateralized using the cash value of the policy and/or pledging personal assets to cover any shortfall.
