What is your client’s policy worth?

Jerry purchased a $500,000 Universal Life policy seven years ago to provide his wife with “peace of mind.” Unfortunately, he could no longer afford the premium payments and contemplated letting the policy go. Jerry’s wife saw a TV commercial from a direct buyer, called a life settlement provider, about selling a life insurance policy for cash. Jerry decided to call the direct buyer and after waiting several months, he was offered $30,000 for his policy. Jerry was skeptical and thought the purchase price was low given his age and health history. He then contacted our life settlement partner, “just to be sure.” They conducted a transparent auction securing a total of 10 offers. In the end, Jerry and his wife received a check for $100,000, 233% more than the offer from the direct buyer!
