LIFE INSURANCE POLICY AUDIT
Tamar Fink has the background, skill and resources to consult on the viability of your existing life insurance policy as most consumers are unaware that their premium alone is often insufficient to sustain their coverage indefinitely.
Upon request, Tamar Fink will complete a thoughtful and comprehensive life insurance policy review in order to identify:
- Properly versus improperly priced policies
- Where additional premium is needed above and beyond what the insured had been paying, in order to sustain the policy
- Policies that are over projected (e.g. optimistic rates of return)
- Policies in jeopardy of lapsing
- Policies currently lapsing
- Fiduciary liability and/or gaps
Tamar Fink thoughtfully reveals hidden assets, sometimes in the least likely places.
An unwanted life insurance policy can be a source of unexpected wealth to enjoy, invest or donate. To discover this untapped wealth, successful clients ask Tamar Fink to explore life settlement options.
This is an exciting, multibillion-dollar industry, allowing individuals to sell policies to the most respected institutional investors.
By selling policies, you can:
- Redeem unwanted, outdated policies that have seemingly lost their value
- Replace them with more appropriate policies, often with lower premiums and/or stronger guarantees
- Discover new wealth to enjoy, invest, pass on or give back
- Retain family benefits for fewer out-of-pocket costs
Tamar Fink acts as an advocate on your behalf with expertise in the life settlement marketplace and has access to the entire industry of buyers. More than 20 years in the market makes Tamar Fink one of the nation’s most experienced firms, with hundreds of successful life settlement transactions completed.
We’d like the opportunity to review your life insurance policies to see if we can reveal hidden assets.
*Investors should consult with their own professional advisor regarding the potential tax, estate, and legal considerations that may arise in connection with entering into a life settlements transaction. Proceeds from a life settlement transaction may be taxable under federal or state law to the extent the proceeds exceed the cost basis. The proceeds from a life settlement transaction may be subject to claims of creditors. The receipt of proceeds from a life settlement transaction may adversely impact eligibility for government benefits and entitlements. The amount received for the sale of the Policy may be impacted by the circumstances of the particular purchaser of the Policy, the insured’s life expectancy, future premiums, the death benefit, the terms of the Policy, and the current market for insurance policies, among other factors. The amount received for the sale of the Policy may be more or less than what others might receive for the sale of a similar policy. There may be high fees associated with the sale of a Life settlement.
