What Are Life Settlements and Viatical Settlements?
Life settlements and viatical settlements are financial transactions where a policy owner sells their life insurance policy to a third party for cash. In a life settlement, the policy owner is typically over 65 years old and the policy has a face value of at least $100,000. In a viatical settlement, the policy owner is typically living with a terminal or chronic illness (of any age). Both options can provide much-needed cash and relief from the burden of paying premiums. If you’re a senior in Florida looking to sell your life insurance policy, Bridge can help.
Benefits of Selling Your Life Insurance Policy
There are many benefits to selling your life insurance policy, including getting cash now, eliminating premiums, and improving your financial situation/lifestyle. Seniors in Florida can use the cash from a life or viatical settlement to pay for medical bills, living expenses, long-term care, or anything else they need. Bridge’s innovative buyer bidding platform ensures that seniors get the highest possible offer for their policies, making it a smart financial decision.

The Florida Market
The Florida market for life and viatical settlements is unique, with its own regulations, buyer demographics, and trends. As a licensed life settlement broker headquartered in Seminole, Florida, Bridge is well-versed in the Florida market and can help seniors navigate its complexities. For example, in Florida, policies with face values below $100,000 can still be sold if they are term policies with a conversion option.

We understand that seniors in Florida may have questions about life and viatical settlements. Here are some frequently asked questions we hear:
What happens to my beneficiaries if I sell my policy?
The buyer/provider becomes the new owner/beneficiary of the life insurance policy when the insured dies.
How is the cash from a settlement taxed?
Sellers typically don’t pay taxes on the basis (the total of all past premiums paid into the policy). The remaining proceeds above the basis or surrender value may be taxed depending on the amount and how the proceeds are used. For example; if the proceeds are used for Long Term Care insurance, they may be tax-favored. We recommend consulting a tax professional in Florida and reading our Life Settlement Tax Guide for more information.
How long does the process take?
Selling a policy is similar to the mortgage process of buying a home. Some transactions can take 30 days others can take months. Bridge can help you streamline the process to save time, money, and headache.
Can term policies be sold?
Yes, term life insurance policies can be sold in the state of Florida. Typically term policies are convertible, favorable in rates to age 100 or within life expectancy. Bridge can help review your term life insurance policy to see if it qualifies.
How do I know if my policy qualifies?
Sometimes it’s hard to tell because the policy is only half the equation, health being the other. Bridge can provide a life expectancy report that your carrier doesn’t provide to help you figure out what your future premiums might be and how that might affect your settlement valuation.
