ex-gratia payments

These are payments made by a company where the claim is a gray area, doubt exists but it may be to the benefit of the claimant and the company feels out of goodwill that some form of payment should be made. The claim is made without any admission of liability. Payment is only made on the understanding that the claimant accepts the amount in full satisfaction of all claims he or she may have on the policy.
