Yes, you can sell your life insurance policy! 500,000 seniors a year “lapse” their life insurance policies….walking away with nothing. Why? Because they don’t know they can sell their policy for a lump-sum in cash. All types of policies can be sold, including term policies…yes, even term policies.
Selling a policy is done through a life insurance settlement, which simply put, is the sale of a life insurance policy to a third party (usually an investor group) for more than any surrender value in the policy. The benefit to the client is that they receive a lump sum payment that is 3 – 5 times greater, on average, than the surrender value of the policy.
So, now, why would anyone sell their policy? The short answer is they no longer want or need it anymore. The reason they purchased the policy 5, 10, or even 20 or 30 years ago, is no longer a concern. Some examples include a term policy that is nearing the end of the term, a client may have retired and their home is now paid off and the kids are now out on their own, sometimes people who purchased a policy for estate tax purposes no longer need it because the estate tax exemption has doubled…whatever the reason, they no longer need the coverage.
90% of surveyed seniors who have let a policy lapse would have considered selling it had they known a life insurance settlement exist. We can help. If you no longer need or want your life insurance policy, we would be honored to be of assistance.
