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.

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.
