Life Settlement is the sale of a life insurance policy that you (or your company) own to an unrelated third party investor. This investor (typically a large company) will pay you a lump sum in exchange for your transferring the policy ownership to them. The buyer then holds the policy with the intention of collecting the death benefit.
While the idea of an unrelated third party owning life insurance on you (or someone you love) might seem a bit unnerving, the benefits can far outweigh the emotional considerations.
Specifically, these companies will often pay a significant sum for the policies - even if they are term. And if they are permanent (cash value) policies, they will often pay far in excess of the cash value of the policy itself.
Often, people find they can sell a term policy that they were going to let lapse (a result of not needing the insurance any longer). This provides a significant cash infusion for an asset they assumed to be essentially worthless. Or, cash value policies can be sold and provide dramatically more money to fund a replacement policy.
