How Do You Qualify for a Viatical Settlement?

Viatical Settlements can be an option for terminally ill people exploring funding options for medical bills, traveling, everyday expenses, or anything else. A Viatical Settlement lets you sell your life insurance policy for a lump sum payout from a third party. The amount offered by the third party is more than the cash surrender value. In exchange, the buyer takes on all further premium payments and becomes the sole owner and beneficiary of your policy, collecting the death benefit when you pass away.

At Settlement Benefits Association, we work to help people selling their insurance policy in a Life Settlement or Viatical Settlement move through the process seamlessly. If you are wondering whether a Viatical Settlement is the right choice for your situation, contact us to discuss your situation, or try our Visual Valuator to make an informed decision.

How Are Viatical Settlements Different From Life Settlements?

When it comes to selling life insurance policies for Life Settlements and Viatical Settlements, the process is quite similar. Where they differ is their eligibility requirements. While Viatical Settlements are for those with a terminal illness, this is not necessary with Life Settlements. To qualify for a Life Settlement, one must:

  • Meet the minimum age requirement of 65.
  • Have a qualifying life insurance policy valued at more than $100,000.
