Effective date

Life insurance terminology shouldn't be confusing. Here is the definition of effective date.

The date a policy is considered to be in force. A policy with a May 1, 2015, effective date means that if the insured passes away on May 1, 2015, or afterward, the policy will pay the death benefit to any listed beneficiaries.
