INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Adjustment Provision'

Adjustable life insurance policies are more expensive but allow the policy holder to make adjustments as his or her needs change. Insurers and plans differ regarding the frequency, amount and degree of changes allowed. Increases to a policy's face amount usually require that the policy holder re-prove his/her insurability.
