The cash value is the amount of money your insurance policy is worth to the owner of the policy if the insurance is cancelled and the policy terminated. The insurance company will mail a check to the to the policy owner upon policy termination or cancellation by request of the owner.

There may be other options and alternatives to access the value of the policy without cancelling the insurance policy.

Can you claim a life insurance policy on your exhusband?

I don't really understand the question. I assume you mean can you take out a life insurance policy on your husband? The person who is being insured must answer the underwriting questions on the application in person and must sign the application and be witnessed by a third unrelated person. Normally the agent is the witness. An important fact is the owner of the policy. The owner is the person who has complete control of the policy after it is issued. Only the owner can change the address, change the beneficiary, etc. Most of the time the owner is the insured but not always. The beneficiary must have an "insurable interest" at the time the policy is taken out. For instance if a husband is insured and the owner of a life insurance policy. He can make his wife the beneficiary but if they divorce he and only he can change the beneficiary and no notice has to be sent to the former beneficiary.
