Insurance Term - Underwriting

The act of reviewing and evaluating prospective insured persons for risk assessment and appropriate premium is known as Underwriting. This includes the process of selecting risks for insurance and classifying them according to their degrees of insurability, so that the appropriate rates may be assigned. The process also includes rejection of those risks that do not qualify.
