Underwriter:
The party who assesses the applicant's/insured's risk level, establishes the corresponding premium(s) and assures that funds will be available to pay to the insured in the event of a loss.

Unilateral Contract:
A legal contract in which only one party makes any legally enforceable promises. A life insurance policy is a unilateral contract since the insurer writes the contract and makes future promises and the insured pays the premium in exchange for such considerations.

Uninsurable Risk:
The risk of incurring a loss is so high that an insurer will not offer coverage.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage:
This type of coverage is part of an automobile insurance policy and protects the owner of an insured vehicle where damages are made to the insured vehicle by a person who is not covered by insurance.

Universal Life Insurance:
An adjustable type of life insurance that provides both term life insurance coverage and a savings vehicle side account with a guaranteed minimum return on the investment. This type of life insurance also allows the policy owner to change the amount of coverage and premiums throughout the duration of coverage.
