What Are Viatical Settlements?
A Viatical Settlement is the sale of an existing life insurance policy to a licensed Viatical Settlement Provider for more than the policy’s cash surrender value, but less than the death benefit amount. The sale of the policy provides the owner with a lump sum cash payment today instead of collecting the policy’s death benefit in the future. Typically, the policy’s insured has been diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer or another serious illness. The amount of a Viatical Settlement offer is based primarily on the insured’s life expectancy and the cost of future policy premiums. With a Viatical Settlement, you can receive up to 80% of the policy’s face value with no future premium expenses. A Viatical Settlement is typically the best option for clients seeking the highest immediate up-front cash payment for their policy.
Do You Qualify?
If you have at least $50,000 in eligible life insurance coverage and have been diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer or another serious illness, you may qualify for a Viatical Settlement. Most life insurance policy types are eligible, including term life, group life, whole life, universal life, flexible adjustable premium life, indexed life, as well as policies issued by FEGLI, VGLI and SGLI.
