Does applying for a Life Settlement require my medical history?

There are a few reasons why a life settlement company may require your medical history.

  • To determine the value of your policy: The value of a life insurance policy is based on a number of factors, including the insured person’s age, health, and the amount of the death benefit. The life settlement company will use your medical history to assess your health and estimate your life expectancy. This information will help them determine how much they are willing to pay for your policy.
  • To assess your eligibility for a life settlement: Some states have restrictions on who can sell their life insurance policies. For example, in some states, you must be terminally ill to sell your policy. The life settlement company will use your medical history to determine if you are eligible to sell your policy.
  • To comply with regulations: The life settlement industry is regulated by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). The NAIC has adopted Model Life Settlement Licensing Regulation, which requires life settlement companies to obtain certain information from the insured person, including their medical history. This information is used to verify the insured person’s identity and to assess the risk of the investment.
