Sell Part of Your Life Insurance For Cash

sell life settlement - magna life settlementMany seniors who are informed about life settlements view the sale of their life insurance policies as an all-or-nothing proposition, but policies don’t actually need to be sold in totality. In some cases, a Retained Death Benefit (RDB) offer might better serve the needs of both retirees and their family.

The reasons for entering into a life settlement are varied, but often the sale of a policy is triggered by one of two factors: 1. prohibitively high premiums or 2. changing circumstances that negate the need for the insurance. But there are situations in which individuals still have the need to keep some of their life insurance’s death benefit for their beneficiaries. In those circumstances, a RDB can be ideal.

This solution could work well for a senior who has more than $100,000 in life insurance, since a policy must be worth at least $100,000 to be evaluated for a life settlement. Some policyholders have one large policy, and they might wish to collect cash for part of the policy and retain the rest for the beneficiary of their choice. Others have two or more policies, which might prompt the decision to sell one and keep the other for the sake of the policy’s beneficiary.

What are the advantages of pursing a Retained Death Benefit offer? As in any settlement, the transaction can yield a windfall to help with medical bills or other retirement expenses, but when a senior sells only part of his insurance assets he can still insure that the policy’s recipient benefits as well.  In this case, the senior sells the policy and the investor is responsible for the premium costs. Then, upon the death of the insured, the life insurance carrier pays the senior’s beneficiary and the investor collects the remaining portion of the death benefit.

Seniors deserve to have control over their financial situation, and by carefully evaluating their life insurance holdings and needs they can make a decision that will give them the amount of insurance they need while still providing extra income. Life settlements can provide a key tool for individuals looking to optimize their resources during their retirement years and still provide for their loved ones after their death.

Magna’s life settlement specialists stand ready to help advise those looking to strike the right combination of life settlement and maintenance of insurance. Studies show that 90 percent of seniors let insurance policies lapse without being made aware of the life settlement option, and many of those individuals might have opted for a partial settlement if informed.
