Life Settlement Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The following are common questions regarding life insurance policy settlements. If you do not see an answer to your question, contact Settlement Benefits Association at 888-255-0444.

When you sell your life insurance policy, the seller receives cash, and the buyer becomes the owner and beneficiary. The new owner will pay all future premiums and receive the death benefit when the original owner passes away.

The policy owner must be at least 65 to complete a life insurance settlement. If you have a terminal illness, you can sell your policy in a Viatical Settlement no matter your age. For both settlements, you can use the funds however you wish. The majority of policy owners use their settlement for health care and final expenses.

The Life Settlement broker represents the policy owner of the life insurance.
