A private inheritance is a defined amount of money inherited by a specific person/s, which is basically a transfer of money from an account or life insurance policy to the person that is designated to receive it. This is done through various computer programs and software applications. This type of inheritance differs from a public inheritance because private individuals were chosen as beneficiaries, whereas in a public inheritance, the amount is accessible to the public in the form of charities and programs from public funds. Lawyers handle the processing of the money, and the division of the amount of inheritance is dictated by the benefactor, and a payment of taxes is usually required. Life insurance policies, or other forms of funds, usually make up a private inheritance. Insurance companies have found a way to guarantee security of the accounts by using software programs designed to record data, process payouts, determine fees, and keep track of transactions.


Private inheritance funds based from computer programming is different from a legal inheritance because the latter is a legal process where a benefactor bequeaths to respective beneficiaries of his or her choosing. A legal inheritance focuses on the lawful disposal of the inheritance of the deceased, and necessarily involves the participation of an able and trusted attorney of the benefactor's choosing. A private inheritance, on the other hand, in C++ programming “is implemented in terms of” relationship, which may involve unrelated individuals as long as they belong to the category or subclass who pass the given conditions. Access to internal information is denied to those individuals outside of the class when “private” access modifiers are used in the program code.

Merging the two concepts of private inheritance based from law and the C++ inheritance, insurance companies are able to handle accounts effectively and securely. In some cases, benefactors leave a specific inheritance to specific individuals, while bequeathing the rest of their inheritance to the public. Insurance companies are able to segregate the proper amounts to the private individuals and to the public through software programs using C++ inheritance programming by adding access specifiers; public, protected and private. Access to the account, or to the information about an inheritance, is accessible to individuals depending on the access modifiers used by the software program of insurance companies.

There are many different software programs available for private inheritance issues. These software programs have intelligent automation, targeted differentiation, transparency, and unparalleled agility. With the rising population comes the rising demand for a secure and efficient insurance policies. People turn to insurance companies and lawyers to provide efficient service in managing inheritance. With the help of adept computer programming using reliable and easy to understand codes, legal matters of private inheritance will not be a problem.
