Insurance companies have to maintain a certain amount of cash reserves intended to cover the average stream of claims and can hold the rest of their money in safe investments. We almost saw an insurance industry collapse when mortgage backed securities fell apart, because the securities were worthless once it was realized the owners only got income from mortgage securities as mortgages were paid but could not foreclose on property or own anything - and insurance companies held tons of those MBS.
After major hurricanes and earthquakes, some insurers go bankrupt if they did not have enough financial reserves to pay insurance policy holders' claims and still stay in business.
