Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a life insurance settlement?
    A life insurance settlement is the sale of a life insurance policy to a third party for an amount greater than the cash surrender value. Typically, the sale involves an insured age 65 or older with a policy that is no longer needed, wanted, or affordable to an investment company that provides the owner of the policy with a lump sum cash settlement. This secondary market for life insurance contracts provides an alternative to accepting the issuing insurance company's surrender value for the policy.

  • Does the entire face amount of the life policy have to be sold?
    No, the entire policy does not have to be sold. Any portion of the face amount can be sold. Just let us know how much you want to sell.
  • How long does the process take?
    Typically, the entire process from application to completion can take 2 - 4 months. It can take 2 - 3 months to receive offers from investors, and about 30 - 60 days to complete the paperwork, if an offer is accepted. But, every client is different and the process can be a little shorter or longer, depending upon the circumstances. If selling a term policy, we recommend starting at least 6 months prior to the end of the term to allow plenty of time for completion.
