How Life Partners Life Settlements (Viaticals) work
A Life Settlement, also sometimes called a Viatical Settlement, is the sale of an existing life insurance policy to an investor, who pays an initial up front amount plus all future premium payments on the insurance policy. The Life Settlement investor will in return receive the insurance policies death benefit once the insured passes away. In principle, the investor can then earn a fair rate of return on its investment and the insured can receive an amount greater than the cash value of the policy. In practice a life settlement investor will purchase a fractional interest in several policies, which help diversify the risk.
