Over time, the need for life insurance coverage naturally changes. While life insurance can sometimes be the largest asset a client owns, it’s rarely reviewed for fair market value like other assets, including real estate, art, and jewelry. This results in clients making uninformed decisions, missing lucrative planning opportunities, and paying unnecessary premiums.

We all know the advantages of early detection when it comes to identifying health risks. We never want to hear the doctors say, “If only we had caught this sooner…”.

Your automobile is equipped with all sorts of warning mechanisms to detect a problem before it turns into a costly repair.

Your children’s report cards provide early detection of a drop in grades before your child needs to repeat a grade.

Your annual dental visits for cleaning and x-rays help detect cavities before they turn into serious problems.

What about existing life insurance policies that your clients currently own? When was the last time you had your client’s existing life insurance appraised to detect all available planning options?

Right now, you have clients in financial transition. Whether it is retirement, selling a business, divorce, bankruptcy, or simply outliving their financial plan, your clients ask, “What are my options?” Is it best for me to keep paying premiums, change my coverage, surrender my policy, or sell my policy for its life settlement value? If you aren’t answering these questions, someone else will. This leaves your clients and the relationships/trust you’ve built with them vulnerable and in jeopardy.
