Common Questions Around Life Settlement Estimates

Find the answers to many of the common questions that come to mind when generating life settlement estimates. For a more extensive list of frequently asked questions, visit our life settlement FAQ page.

What is a life settlement calculator?

The life settlement calculator is a free tool that we can use to generate a quick, basic estimate of your life settlement value. It only takes a few minutes. We’ll use this as a starting point in the life settlement process.

What factors influence the value of my estimate?

There are a variety of factors that we take into account when providing an estimate. These include:

  • Your age and health
  • Face value of the policy
  • Cost of premiums
  • Type of policy

How much can I expect from a life settlement payout?

On average, policyowners who qualify and choose to sell their life insurance policy through a life settlement receive a payout of between 5% and 25% of the policy’s face value. With that said, each sale is different, and your final payout may vary. However, a life settlement always pays more than lapsing or surrendering a policy.

Am I eligible for a life settlement?

You may be eligible for a life settlement if you meet the following criteria:

  • You’re 65+ (or younger with a significant health issue)
  • Your health has changed since you bought your policy
  • You own a policy of $100,000 or more

After I get my estimate, what happens next?

After you receive your estimate, you can decide whether you’d like to move forward with the life settlement. If you choose to move forward, the life settlement professionals at Lighthouse Life will take as much time as you wish to help answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to make sure you have the right information to make the best financial decision for your specific situation, even if it means we don’t purchase your policy.
