Unlocking Hidden Value for Seniors

Imagine a scenario – a PEO employee, approaching retirement, burdened with financial anxieties, suddenly discovers an avenue to retire years earlier. This isn’t a pipe dream, but the potential reality unlocked by leveraging life settlements.

For PEO companies managing benefits for a senior workforce (approximately 25% of the 4.5 million PEO worksite employees) reaching Medicare age, life settlements represent a missed opportunity to serve their clients remarkably.

When senior employees reach 65, the transition to Medicare often coincides with contemplating retirement. Many, however, feel trapped due to financial constraints. This is where life settlements come in.

Life settlements allow individuals to sell their unwanted or unaffordable life insurance policies on the secondary market for a lump sum, significantly exceeding the cash surrender value offered by the original insurer.

A Statistically Significant Difference

According to the Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA):

  • $789 million was paid to consumers through life settlements in 2022.
  • Consumers received 638 million more than surrendering their policies.
  • The average payout is 5.2 times the cash surrender value.

These figures highlight the substantial financial benefit life settlements offer compared to traditional surrender options.

PEOs as Facilitators, Not Sellers

It’s crucial to understand that PEOs shouldn’t directly engage in selling life settlements. They can, however, act as facilitators by:

  • Educating senior clients about the existence and potential benefits of life settlements.
  • Recommending reputable life settlement brokers.

Life Settlement Brokers vs. Providers

Unlike life settlement providers, who are buyers, brokers act as fiduciaries for the policyholder, ensuring they receive the highest possible payout through a competitive auction process.

Think of brokers as real estate agents for life insurance, guiding clients through the sale while prioritizing their best interests.

A Win-Win Situation

Integrating life settlements into PEO services benefits both parties:

  • Seniors: Gain financial security and the freedom to retire sooner.
  • PEOs: Strengthen client relationships, enhance their value proposition, and potentially tap into surplus funds from keyman life insurance policies.

Taking the First Step

Bridge Life Settlements, a leading life settlement brokerage firm, offers free consultations to PEOs seeking to integrate life settlement solutions into their client service offerings. Additionally, Bridge provides bonus opportunities for PEOs demonstrating dedication to their senior clients’ well-being.

By embracing life settlements, PEOs can empower their senior workforce to achieve a well-deserved and financially secure retirement, solidifying their position as trusted partners in their clients’ journeys.

Key Takeaways:

  • Life settlements offer seniors a way to unlock hidden value in their life insurance policies, potentially allowing them to retire sooner.
  • PEOs can act as facilitators by educating their senior clients about life settlements and recommending reputable brokers.
  • Life settlements can be a win-win for both seniors and PEOs, providing financial security for seniors and enhancing the value proposition for PEOs.
