Recession Proof Your Retirement Podcast

Apr 25, 2022

Coincidence. Destiny. Karma. Luck. Fate. Good fortune. These words all describe the opportunity presented in this episode and it just might be your ticket to ride. In this episode- I’ll explain how you can turn a unnecessary and often expensive life insurance policy into the kind of money that could redefine your golden years. Most people believe they have only three options for their now unwanted and unneeded life insurance policies. They include:


  1. Keep the policy and continue paying the increased premiums.
  2. Decrease the death benefit of the policy to maintain an affordable premium.
  3. Let the policy lapse and receive any potential cash value that has accumulated if it’s a permanent policy.


What if there was a fourth option that might benefit you much more? Would you like to learn how you could potentially profit from the sale of your life insurance policy? I feel you should be in the know about a relatively unknown yet powerful option: Life settlements!

Valmark Securities supervises all life settlements like a security transaction and its’ registered representatives act as brokers on the transaction and may receive a fee from the purchaser. Once a policy is transferred, the policy owner has no control over subsequent transfers and may be required to disclosure additional information later. If a continued need for coverage exists, the policy owner should consider the availability, adequacy and cost of the comparable coverage. A life settlement transaction may require an extended period to complete and result in higher costs and fees due to their complexity. Policy owners considering the need for cash should consider other less costly alternatives. A life settlement may affect the insured’s ability to obtain insurance in the future and the seller’s eligibility for certain public assistance programs. When an individual decides to sell their policy, they must provide complete access to their medical history, and other personal information.
