What is a Life Settlement and How It Works
Life settlements take place when an insured or policyholder sells his or her existing policy to the financial agent in return for a payment. Generally, when an insured falls seriously ill and the life expectancy changes, he or she decides to sell the insurance to a financial institution for immediate cash benefit. These financial institutions buy these life insurance policies for a one-time cash payment greater than the value of the policy of the insured and in return pays the remaining premiums and gain death benefits when the insured dies.

Let Us Help Plan Your Investment for Retirement
If you are trying to decide a strategy for retirement spending, annuities can be a good option. Annuities can help you convert your assets into a predictable income through long-term investments. The claims-paying ability the insurance company that issues your annuity usually backs your income. Here are some ways in which buying an annuity can be beneficial:
Guaranteed income after you retire
Helps in accumulation of potential tax-deferred earnings
The volatility of your retirement portfolio decreases, though variable annuities are effected by market risks
A good retirement investment option beyond 401(k)s and IRAs
They can assure you that your retirement does not let you outlive your savings
Types of Annuities
Beginning in the accumulation phase, this type of annuity requires the owner to pay premiums into the annuity and make a choice from the investment options available. At this time, accumulation of the earnings happen on a tax-deferred basis. The income phase can be started at a date anytime later, which mostly coincides with a retirement date.
Deferred annuities can be classified into three types:
Fixed annuities - This comes with a fixed return rate for a specified amount of time. You can choose the time period to match your retirement requirements.
Indexed annuities - If you choose this type of annuity, your investment growth will depend on the performance of market indices, over a range of time-horizons. If you are looking for 100% principal protection, you can opt for fixed indexed annuities. In this case, your benefits have a cap and the growth might be reduced in comparison to the actual market gains the index achieves. However, for retirement income, as with variable annuities, fixed indexed annuities may also be bundled with optional lifetime income benefits.*
This type of annuities do not have any accumulation phase and have a direct beginning at the distribution phase. When buying this type of annuity, you can choose from different income options in exchange for the payment of premium.
Things to Consider Before Annuity Investing
Be clear about your objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance
Study the types of annuities thoroughly and then choose the one that matches your needs
* Indexed annuities are not a direct stock market investment. It is not possible to directly invest in an index.
