A life insurance settlement is a sale or transfer of a life insurance policy by the policy’s owner. Typically, a policy is sold by someone is a senior citizen who does not have a life-threatening illness. Perhaps a policy premium has become too much of a burden for them to handle financially and they need extra money, or they need to make changes to their estate plans.
The policy owner will receive a cash amount, which is much greater than the actual cash surrender value of the policy but, less than the full amount of the death benefit on the policy. The amount received for the life insurance settlement can depend on various issues, such as the policy owner’s medical condition and the amount of the death benefit. Once sold, the settlement company becomes the policy’s new owner, and is responsible for paying future premiums on the policy, so this is also a factor in how much the cash amount will be.
Once the insured is deceased, the new owner of the policy receives the death benefit. Contact a life settlement broker to find out how much you can get. I will show you a secondary market where financial institutions compete to give you the highest possible payout and get you paid quickly.
