Did You Know You Can Sell Your Life Insurance Policy?
Most people own some type of life insurance. The coverage is typically designed to provide your family a source of income in the event of an untimely loss. But what happens if circumstances change and the policy is no longer needed? Or, you unfortunately can no longer afford the premiums due to medical expenses? Historically, the only option available was to surrender it back to the insurance company for whatever cash value remains in the policy, or cancel the policy and receive nothing.
But now, you have a better choice. Through a powerful but little-known Supreme Court decision in 1911, it was ruled that a person’s life insurance policy can be legally sold – even while the policyholder is still living. You may be eligible to receive up to 80% of the face amount of the policy today! The money is yours and never has to be paid back. Most policy types will qualify…even term. Most importantly, the funds can be spent any way you like – even for natural and alternative treatments.
How Can a Settlement Help Me?
Treating cancer can be very expensive. It’s often a challenge to keep up with the additional costs you or a loved one may experience after being diagnosed with cancer. According to a recent NBC News story, treatment costs are only going to increase. Many people facing late-stage cancer have to delay much needed life-extending treatment because the cost can be more than they can afford, which only makes the fight harder when they are ready to pursue treatment.
According to Mayo Clinic, an uninsured cancer patient will spend more than $100,000 annually on treatment. Even with health insurance, a patient can spend approximately $25,000 to $30,000 in out of pocket expenses. On top of that, studies have shown that bankruptcy rates are nearly double among cancer patients within the first one year of diagnosis. Often, individuals facing Cancer can’t afford the premiums on their life insurance policy due to medical costs and loss of income. A lapse or surrender of a valuable life insurance policy at this important time can be devastating. Many people are unaware that there are alternatives to lapsing a policy for people facing a life-threatening illness.
