    Face value is the death benefit of the life insurance policy.  It is the amount that will be paid out at the death of the insured.  The face amount can range from thousands to millions.  This face amount is transferred at death to the beneficiaries of the policy with no income tax.

    The face amount of a life insurance policy is the amount of coverage that was purchased. If a loan was taken out against the policy, if the policy was graded, or if the policy had strong growth over many years, the amount that is paid to the beneficiary may be lower or higher than the original face amount.
