Your client’s life insurance policy may be the most valuable asset they own.
There are many reasons policy owners choose to exit the life insurance policy - the original need may no longer exist, they may need to eliminate expensive premium payments, or they just need some additional liquidity to help with medical costs and retirement needs. There could be a better way...
A life settlement is the sale of an existing life insurance policy for more than the cash surrender value and less than the death benefit.
Common Life Settlement Planning Scenarios:
Who has the best chance of qualifying for a life settlement?
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. Even policies used in estate planning and business protection with death benefits from $2M - $100M can qualify. Younger policy owners with serious chronic illnesses can also explore the life settlement option. There are many scenarios where a client could qualify for a life settlement.
