Actual Cash Value

Actual cash value is the current value of some property—in other words, the amount it’s worth today, which is the amount you paid for it, minus some amount for the “depreciation” the item suffered in the years since you bought it due to normal wear-and-tear. If you’re being reimbursed on an “ACV” basis, it’s less than what you’d see under a comparable replacement cost plan.
