Due to the relatively short period of time the life settlement market has existed, the market is currently loosely regulated and the number of bidders for any marketed policy may be limited. Prior to selling a policy, the insured should consider factors such as the continued need for insurance coverage, whether there are plans to replace the existing policy with another policy, how the sale of the policy will impact estate plans, and the availability of new insurance as well as the cost of comparable coverage. Where relevant, tax implications must also be taken into consideration.
Loans and withdrawals from insurance policies may generate an income tax liability, reduce available cash value and reduce the death benefit or cause the policy to lapse. Early withdrawals and other distributions of taxable amounts may be subject to ordinary income tax, a surrender charge, and if taken prior to age 59 ½, a 10% federal tax penalty may apply.
All guarantees are subject to the claims paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
