Frequently Asked Questions
Read common questions and answers about our financial assistance programs.
Should I sell my policy or borrow against it?
Depending on your individual situation, a life insurance loan may work better for you than a viatical settlement. Typically, this decision will depend on whether you have a smaller immediate cash need and/or desire to preserve some of the policy’s benefit to pass on to your beneficiaries. When you contact us, we will help you decide which option is best for you and your family.
Do I qualify for a viatical settlement or life insurance loan?
Individuals diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer or another serious illness with life insurance of more than $50,000 in face value will generally qualify for our viatical settlement and life insurance loan programs. If you haven’t been diagnosed with a serious illness, but are over 70, you may still qualify for one of our life settlement programs for seniors. Learn more about our life settlement programs here.
What types of policies are eligible for viatical settlements and life insurance loans?
Universal Life, Whole Life, Variable Universal Life, Term and Convertible Term Life policies issued by U.S. based insurance companies. Joint, second-to-die policies, group policies and those issued by FEGLI, VGLI and SGLI are typically eligible as well.
How much should the policy’s face value be?
Generally, a policy with a face value of $50,000 or higher is eligible for a viatical settlement or life insurance loan.
Is a health exam required?
No. Unlike when you purchased your life insurance coverage, a health exam isn’t required for you to qualify for a viatical settlement or life insurance loan. Medical underwriting decisions are based on an independent review of the medical records we will obtain from your health care providers.
Is a credit check required for a life insurance loan?
No. There will never be any credit checks for the life insurance loan. Since the only collateral for the loan is the insurance policy, your individual credit worthiness doesn’t matter.
I don't have a serious illness. Do I have any options?
If you haven’t been diagnosed with a serious illness, but are over 70, you may qualify for one of our life settlement programs for seniors. Learn more about our life settlement programs here.
