Retained Death Benefit Option

A revolutionary transaction for the life settlement market, enables policy owners to keep a portion of their life insurance with no future premium obligations.

Life insurance has long been a valuable estate planning tool. However, the cost of maintaining insurance for older individuals may represent significant financial challenges.

Underperforming policies, due to low interest rates, combined with longer life expectancies, often put the annual premium outlay beyond what a policy owner can afford.

  1. The policyowner may choose to retain a portion of death benefit in lieu of a cash payment.
