Differences Between Insurance And Assurance

There are different terms in the world of finance, where people often get confused. The first and foremost things where you will get confused are with the terms insurance and assurance.

When we go for the exact dictionary meaning, insurance will provide cover for the unexpected things that might happen. Whereas, the assurance will cover the thing that is certain to happen.

During the set period of time, life insurance will provide the financial provisions, if any unfortunate thing happens during that time. The insurance policy will be ceased and payment will not be done, if the person outlives after the term of the policy.

But unlike life insurance, life assurance will always pay the payment. The payment that is made will be insured sum along with the investment element. As the investment bonuses are added, the value of the policy will increase. If the person is covered with the life assurance dies then in that situation the person’s dependents will be benefited with the insured sum as well as the invested bonuses.

All these make the Saliva drug testing more usable. But apart from the advantages, there is a drawback that this test cannot detect the previous history of the drug abuse.

Working of Saliva Drug test:

  • Scrub is used for detecting the presence of the drug. Scrub looks almost like the tooth brush, but instead of bristles a swab will be used for detecting the drug.
  • The swab is placed between the lower cheeks and the gums for about two minutes.
  • Once the swab absorbs saliva, then it becomes completely wet and then it is put into the vial.
  • Then it should be sent to the laboratory for the results.
  • Now-a-days even home drug kits are available which can directly detect the presence of drug without sending them to the laboratory.
