Charitable organizations are using an innovative approach to generate cash gifts from senior clients who currently own life insurance, including term insurance, they no longer want or need. Life insurance has present value above and beyond cash surrender value and can be appraised and valued, like any other asset, for fair market value. The policy can be sold to a licensed institutional buyer for cash and the policy owner can then use the funds in any way they wish – including donation of all or a portion of the cash proceeds to charity.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discover how the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is driving substantial gifts of cash from affluent senior life policy owners.
  • Learn how to leverage business term insurance, which is generally lapsed without ever being appraised for fair market value, thereby leaving six to seven figures on the table that could have been donated to charity.
  • Identify a solution that allows you to generate cash from previously donated life insurance policies that have become too expensive to maintain.
