If you're looking to secure life insurance required for a lump sum benefit, you're in the right spot.
We have relationships with several lump sum settlement brokers to help secure their clients life insurance. We'll explain everything you need to know in this article.
Most people looking to sell a portion of their pension stream, VA disability payments, annuity payments, lottery payments or any guaranteed income stream HAVE to secure life insurance. Not only is this a requirement, the life insurance has to be "assignable" and most life insurance carriers won't assign this coverage.
Most Carriers Decline Life Insurance for Lump Sum Settlements
The most important piece of advice we can give you is to use a life insurance agent or agency who works with these lump sum settlements regularly. The main reason is that most life insurance carriers refuse this business, so make sure you're applying with a company that takes this business.
We've spoken with dozens of people who have tried to secure life insurance for a lump sum settlement, only to have the collateral assignment form been denied or been outright declined for coverage just because of the reason you're buying this insurance. Don't let this happen to you!

Handling The Collateral Assignment
After your policy goes in force, you need to complete a collateral assignment to the investor(s) providing you the lump sum payment. This form is very basic and just involves your signatures and possibly a notary requirement.
Most life insurance carriers have 1 collateral assignment form that's used for every collateral assignment transaction. However, there are some life insurance companies that have collateral assignment forms unique to lump sum settlements. We have all of those forms.
For example, one company added this verbiage to their collateral assignment and won't accept any other assignment form:
Life insurance agents who haven't worked these lump sum benefits wouldn't know about these different collateral assignment forms. This will delay the process of obtaining your lump sum.
Obtaining these forms comes from experience in working these cases. We can handle the collateral assignment paperwork for you.
