There are many factors involved when making this big decision, but if other options aren’t readily available, a cash settlement in the secondary market can be a significant source of needed income. The Ashar SMV®, Secondary Market Valuation, can help you determine if your client’s policy has value beyond the cash surrender value. All types of policies can qualify, even Survivorships.

The same is true with underfunded Universal Life, Guaranteed UL policies, as well as second to die policies.
