Financing Retirement with Life Settlements

By Caitlina Fuller

Many baby boomers are worried about retirement and how they will possibly be able to afford this luxury. In fact, many baby boomers are considering working until they are no longer physically able to work. This is certainly not the relaxing retirement filled with travel and grandkids like many imagined, but it is the only option many baby boomers see because they are not prepared for retirement. However, there is one excellent option to help individuals prepare for retirement even if they believe they are not financially able to.

Believe it or not, but seniors can take advantage of something called life insurance settlements to finance their retirement. This goes against what many seniors believe, but in the face of poverty and the final years spent on welfare many seniors decide that it really is a pretty good option. Basically, life settlements occur when a senior chooses to sell their life insurance policy for a price lower than the face value, but still large enough to take care of them. By cashing in their life insurance policies via a senior life settlement these individuals are securing their futures. This is the case because seniors will receive a cash payment for their life insurance policy. It is not the face value of the policy, but it is still a pretty good chunk of it. Certainly, enough to help individuals prepare for their retirements and pay for their own food, housing, medical expenses, and even travel!

Many seniors don't like the idea of life settlements because they want to leave money to their families when they die. However, no family would want to see their mother, father, or grandparent suffer throughout their final years financially when there is a way to avoid it. Not to mention, these individuals can be frugal with their money and still manage to save enough for their families after they are gone.

If you are worried about your financial future and most specifically your retirement then you must consider a life settlement offer if it is available to you. Your fears will be eliminated and you can really enjoy your retirement years like you had always hoped you would. Remember, however, that a life settlement is not the same as cashing in your policy with your insurance company. You will get a much larger sum through a life settlement so focus on this and even have a professional help you get the largest sum for your money.
