Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • Life Insurance and Terminal Illness
  • If you are terminally ill, your life insurance policy is a valuable resource. Not only can you use life insurance to provide adequate income to your survivors for their short- and long-term needs, but you also may be able to receive a portion of the death proceeds from your life insurance before you die in order to pay necessary expenses or to fulfill a dream.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • Guaranteed insurability rider
  • When you are terminally ill, you pose an obvious risk to an insurance company, and you will probably be unable to buy additional life insurance coverage. However, if you purchased a guaranteed insurability rider (additional purchase option) when you bought your policy, you may be able to buy additional life insurance without providing proof of medical insurability.

  • Change your dividend option
  • If your insurance policy pays you annual dividends, you may be able to purchase more life insurance. Check the dividend option currently in effect. If the dividends are left to accumulate or used to reduce premiums, most policies will allow you to switch to a paid-up additions option. This allows you to use the dividends to buy fully paid-up additional life insurance on yourself with no proof of medical insurability.

  • Buy credit insurance
  • If you are taking out a loan to buy a big-ticket item, and you are still employed, you may be able to purchase credit life insurance that will pay off the balance of your loan when you die.

  • Check your company's group life insurance program
  • If you are still employed, you may be able to purchase additional life insurance through your company's program with no evidence of medical insurability. This may be available at any time or only during an open enrollment window usually provided annually.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • Life insurance can help provide adequate income to your survivors
  • The more life insurance you purchase, the better your survivors will be protected financially after you die. Therefore, even though your premiums will rise (and possibly strain an already extended budget), you should seriously consider purchasing the maximum amount of coverage available to you.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • You may be able to take out a loan against the cash surrender value
  • If your life insurance policy has a cash value component, you may be able to get a loan from the insurance company using your policy as collateral. Keep in mind, however, that taking a loan against your policy will reduce the death benefit and cash value of the policy.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • You may be able to apply for benefits from an accelerated death benefit rider
  • You may own a life insurance policy that includes an accelerated death benefit rider. If so, you may be eligible to receive part of the face amount of the policy in advance of your death, in either one lump sum or installments.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • You can use the proceeds however you wish, and if your life expectancy is 24 months or less, the proceeds will be nontaxable to you. You may also be able to elect to take less money than the full amount available to you, so that some benefit will be payable to your survivors.

slide11

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • You may want to sell your policy to a viatical settlement company or provider
  • A viatical settlement is the sale of a life insurance policy to a third party, usually a viatical settlement funding company owned by a group of investors. When you sell your policy, you will generally receive between 40 and 85 percent of the face value of the policy, and you can use the cash payment any way you wish.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • Many individuals use the proceeds to pay medical costs or living expenses, while others use the proceeds to fulfill a final dream or to experience the joy of giving money away to others. Although you would get less now than your beneficiaries would get if you kept the policy, the advantage is that you get the proceeds of your life insurance while you are alive.

Life Insurance and Terminal Illness

  • Any money that you do not spend can be left to your beneficiaries through your will. The money you receive from a viatical settlement is free from income tax if your life expectancy is 24 months or less.
