Trope-a-Day: Backup Twin

Backup Twin: What you acquire when your incarnation insurer thought you were dead, but it turns out you weren’t.

Choosing exactly where you want the balance between the risk of staying dead and the risk of acquiring a twin is one of those things you just have to do when you buy incarnation coverage.)
