Pre-Qualification Worksheet

The purchasing parameters for a life transaction will differ from one purchaser
(known as “providers” in the industry) to another.

Policy value amounts vary from one individual to the next. An individual, a corporation, partnership, trust, or charity can be the owner of a policy.

It is important for the provider to confirm that the policy is in force and not subject to any additional restrictions that would prevent payment of a death benefit, also that the policy is not hindered by any other party.

Policy parameters should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Face amounts of $250,000 and up
  • Ages 80+, or 75+ with health changes since the policy was issued
  • Current Assumption UL policies but can price GUL policies
  • Last to Die, with one remaining insured living
  • Convertible Term
  • Premiums of less than 5-6% of DB to maturity
