What Seniors in Retirement Need to Know About Their Existing Life Insurance
Life settlements are the sale of an existing life insurance policy for more than the cash surrender value and less than the death benefit. Anyone age 65 or older who has developed health issues since their policy was issued and owns a universal life or convertible term insurance policy has a high probability of benefiting from selling their policy. Policies with a death benefit of $250K or more can qualify. Younger policy owners with serious chronic illnesses can also explore the life settlement option.
