It includes the name of the insured, the face amount of the policy,the beneficiary's name, and premium amount, as well as the type of policy, any riders(addition to the policy you might have bought), and whether or not the cost of the insurance has been figured on a guaranteed basis or a participating basis.

2. Details- Approximately 10 clauses giving the specifics of the policy's operation, such as due date of premium, value of the policy when you surrender it for either cash or a loan, the amount paid at the time of your death, and options of how your beneficiary can receive that money are included.
