Once a long term disability payment amount is reached, the question of a future benefit buyout may arise. Sometimes, the insurer or the insured wants to settle the entire claim for a one-time lump sum buyout of all future benefits. The insured has many questions to consider before doing this. You need to consult a professional — that’s why were are here. Call us today.
Does a future benefit buyout make sense for your claim? How much is your buyout worth?
My law firm deals with these two questions weekly. The answers are dependent on the facts of each individual claim. There are many factors to consider, such as:
1) Claimant’s basis of disability;
2) Policy definitions;
3) Mortality considerations;
4) Claimant’s age;
5) Proper calculation of future value and assessment of present value of the policy;
6) reinsurance agreements;
7) interest rates at the time of buyout proposal;
8) Personal financial obligations of the Claimant.
It’s important to remember each buyout situation is different. Just because an insurance company is offering a potential buyout doesn’t necessarily mean that a future benefits buyout is right for you. At Cody Allison & Associates, we understand these are difficult considerations. That’s why we have a team of professionals ready to assist you in assessing your individual situation. Further, we ONLY get paid if we successfully negotiate a buyout on your behalf.
