Life Settlements – Risks and Rewards

Life Settlements are relatively young transactions in the insurance industry, but you can trace its origins back to 1911.

Early retirement?

Hanging it up at age 60 or 62 sounds like a lot of fun! Wake up when you want to, tee it up once or twice a week and enjoy the grandchildren. Even though I will be 68 on Nov. 2, I'm not quite there yet. I can't buy enough liability insurance to get on the golf course!

Tax-free exchanges

One of the provisions of the Revenue Code that is very attractive to life and annuity policyholders is Section 1035. This provision of the Code allows you to transfer the values from a life policy or an annuity to a new contract and defer taxes on your gain. Life policy values may be transferred to a new life policy or a non-qualified annuity. A non-qualified annuity may also be transferred to another non-qualified annuity, but annuity values may not be transferred to a life policy.
