A life settlement is the sale of a life insurance policy for a value in excess of the cash surrender value, but less than the face value.

Life settlements represent an important solution for a growing number of people who thought they were stuck with a life insurance policy they no longer need. Many people do not realize a life insurance policy is their personal property and can be sold.

  •  The seller receives a cash offer for their policy.
  •  The buyer pays all future premiums.
  •  The buyer receives the face value upon the death of the insured.
