Date: Monday, May 20, 2024
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm ET
Location: Complimentary Sponsored Webinar
Speaker: Jamie L. Mendelsohn, EVP and Jon B. Mendelsohn, CEO

Join our expert panel for a 30-minute (+ Q&A) discussion as we uncover key strategies and blind spots that planners can address when guiding clients through valuing life insurance and the life settlement process. We will cover frequently asked questions and everyday planning scenarios. If you’d like a specific question addressed during the discussion, please email your question to

Once the original need for life insurance has passed, life events trigger a need for updated planning and cash flow requirements. Don’t miss the opportunity for your clients to make an informed decision about what to do with their life insurance when they no longer want to pay anymore premiums. Avoid losing 6 -7 figures of immediate liquidity by unintentionally canceling a policy for less than it’s worth.

Whether you’re new to life settlements or seeking to refine your strategies, this webinar ensures you’re well-prepared to navigate the evolving landscape of life settlements with confidence.
