What Is My Policy Worth in a Viatical Settlement?

Financial professional discussing a life settlement offer with an older man.

When you have a terminal illness and a life expectancy of fewer than four years, you have much more to consider than paying monthly premiums for life insurance. You may want to take care of your medical bills now, so your family does not have to later. Even if you outright cancel your life insurance policy, you may not have the funds you need.

Viatical Settlements allow you to sell your life insurance policy for a better offer than¬†the cash surrender value ‚ÄĒ¬†the small monetary payout your life insurance company offers when you stop paying premiums.¬†When you sell your life insurance policy, you receive a lump sum cash payment that you can use immediately.

How much you will get from a buyer varies for every policy. Settlement Benefits Association presents your case to buyers and helps negotiate the highest possible bid. We guide you through the settlement process and work with our reliable funding groups to give you the best deal possible on your life insurance.

Factors in Your Viatical Settlement Valuation

When we evaluate your policy and begin negotiations for your settlement, we look closely at your policy and its benefits, along with other relevant records, such as your medical history. We gather as much information as possible to strategize and create a plan for you to get the most value from your policy.

Circumstances that may affect your policy worth include:

Health status

Anyone applying for a Viatical Settlement has health concerns, and the severity of these concerns can affect the value of your policy. Most often, the less healthy you are, the larger your settlement will be.

Policy size

The more extensive your policy is, the more potential buyers will spend to purchase it. 

Policy cost

Extensive policies do often come with extensive premium payments, and a higher policy cost can potentially bring down an offer.
