Brenda, Age 78, $500,000 Universal Life Policy 

Brenda originally took out her policy to help support her children’s expenses, should the worst ever happen. Her kids have grown into self-sufficient adults since she first took out her policy, therefore, they no longer need her support in case of financial hardship. The policy has started to feel more like dead weight, and her premium payments are slowly chipping away at her retirement fund. She has plans for travel, treating her grandchildren, and even potentially buying a vacation home. Since the policy is eating away at her fund, she is becoming worried that her dreams might not become a reality. 

Because she is 78, Brenda qualifies for a traditional life settlement. She can trade her policy (and her premiums) for immediate cash or income for life.  

In Brenda’s case example, Abacus Life Services would refer her directly to a provider who would likely provide a life settlement quote in no more than 24 hours after initially contacting us. Brenda’s dreams for her retirement fund can become a reality, thanks to Abacus Life. 

Steven, Age 67, $1,000,000 Term Policy

This was an especially important matter to him, so he needed to weigh out all his options to ensure that he was making the right decision.

She reached out via the Abacus website and contacted one of their representatives who broke it all down for her, helping her every step of the way. 

Jennifer’s health concerns qualify her for a range of life settlement options, but the one best suited for her needs is a hybrid life settlement. She can trade in her policy for a combination of cash now, and a retained death benefit.  

By taking advantage of a hybrid life settlement, Jennifer can focus on healing. She does not have to stress paying her medical expenses and is happy knowing that her family will be taken care of financially, should the worst happen.
