What do you mean by ‘Loss Payee’?
Loss payees are people or institutions that receive your insurance benefits when you lose your property or vehicle. It is a legal term used to define an investment owned by you that is owned by another party or bank. You may have a car on loan and insurance for that car. You met with an accident and now your car is a total loss (meaning it can never be repaired). In such a case, your bank still owes you money when you claim the insurance; the insurance company will pay the money directly to your bank or the person owed money to you. The bank is the loss payee in this case.
When there is a loss connected with a property in which they have a financial interest, the loss payee is the party or entity that gets paid first. The loss payee is the person to whom the claim from a loss should be paid. This property is often held or used by someone other than the loss payee. The term loss payee has several different meanings; in the insurance industry, the insured, or the party entitled to payment, is the loss payee. Losses will be reimbursed by the insurance carrier.
Any loss covered by the insurer would be paid to a third-party payee instead of the primary beneficiary, as specified in a loss payee clause in an insurance policy. If the insured has a lien on his or her property, the lender may be the loss payee, or the lessee may be the loss payee.
