Program Overview

A life settlement can often be the solution your clients need as they plan for retirement or are faced with medical expenses. From the growing retirement savings gap to the senior health care/long-term care funding crisis, seniors should be aware of all their financial options and advisors should be prepared to lead an informed discussion. A case study analysis will also be part of this session.

Learning Objectives:

  • The capital market, including an industry update
  • Current pricing and underwriting standards
  • Regulatory and legislative support for the life settlement industry
  • How simplified underwriting is used for prepricing
  • How a settlement is taxed
