PARTNER AND CO-FOUNDER OF SETTLEMENT BENEFITS ASSOCIATION, INC. 

A life settlement is the sale of an existing Life Insurance policy 
to a third party for more than its Cash Surrender Value but less than its 
net death benefit. There are a number of reasons that a policy owner may 
choose to sell his or her life insurance policy. The policy owner may no 
longer need or want his or her policy, he or she may wish to purchase 
a different kind of life insurance policy, or premium payments may no 
longer be affordable. Policy owners often learn about settling their policies 
from a Financial Planner or advisor, insurance broker, attorney, friends or 
family, or estate planning presentations. 

Settlement Benefits Association, Inc. Is dedicated to helping seniors 
understand and maximize the value they get out of their life insurance. 
To do so in a professional, effective, and considerate manner, we have 
chosen to remain independent from all investment vehicles, never raising 
capital to purchase policies. By leveraging service relationships with over 
20 different funding groups, we bring the greatest potential benefit to our 
clients. Our goal is to fund every policy. 

We are committed to providing the highest level of service to our 

clientele. This commitment ensures that we are always available to work 

on a case, that we are as quick with any bad news as we are with the good 

news, and that we will uphold our fiduciary duty to the client. 

Furthermore, we stand by our privacy and confidentiality policies, and 

refuse to compromise our integrity or jeopardize our ethical standards. As 

a demonstration of this commitment, we have taken the additional step 

of having our professional licenses, ethical standards, and professional 

SETTLEMENT BENEFITS
