English term or phrase: to bind a policy
This sentence is from the website of a car insurer:

Sorry, but we cannot quote or bind a policy with a start date in the past.


Unfortunately there is no further context as I received the segments in alphabetical order. I hope someone can help anyway.

(rückwirkend) Versicherung abschließen


Explanation:
If you meet with your Independent Insurance Agent to obtain an insurance policy, your agent may mention that your policy has been “bound”. What exactly does that mean? When your agent binds a policy, it means that he or she, as a representative of the insurance company, confirms that coverage is in place.
