Virginia Life Settlement
If you are currently evaluating a life settlement in Virginia consider shopping your policy with a company that will put your financial interests ahead of their own.

A Virginia life settlement company should also assume the costs of processing, packaging and sending the documentation on behalf of their client. Whether the company is working with their senior client, family member or financial professional, they should always take on the expenses associated with a life settlement transaction.
Please Note: Life insurance companies do very little educating seniors the benefits of a life settlement. Insurance companies have always made profits on lapsed policies and it's in their financial interest not to educate consumers this option exists. If a policy lapses for any reason, there is a chance the insurance company will not pay the death benefits to the beneficiary at the time of death. If you no longer can afford the life insurance premiums you may consider selling your policy back to the insurance carrier that issued the policy. The other alternative is having your policy shopped in the secondary market for a larger payout than the surrender value.
