Services

TOLI Administration Support Services:  Credible in-force TOLI policy management requires access to  annual policy values and carrier illustrations. Illustration credibility was clarified in 1992 by the Society of Actuaries and Society of Financial Service Professionals and subsequently by FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority). For non-guaranteed death benefit policies, carrier illustrations depict how a policy works but disclaim predictive value, do not evaluate premium adequacy and do not assess the reasonableness of carrier-controlled assumptions. As a result, premium adequacy and policy performance reporting for non-guaranteed death benefit policies should include annual inforce carrier illustrations and benchmark modeling that use impartial and objective data.

Policy Remediation:  TOLI policy risk management should not be confused with customary life insurance marketing and policy service practices.  A lapsed TOLI policy can lead to questions of trustee negligence and damages.  Currently, 17% of all in-force TOLI policies serviced by The TOLI Center are projected to lapse prior to or within 5 years of the insured’s life expectancy.  Several options are available to clients to address their underperforming policies. Policy Management Alternatives Report.  This report includes detailed policy management alternatives for underperforming policies or policies that are no longer appropriate to meet trust objectives. Life Settlement Market Value Projection.  Life Settlement is the sale of an in-force life insurance policy to a third- party for its fair market value yielding a cash payment to the seller in excess of the policy’s cash surrender value but less than its death benefit. The purchaser acquires policy ownership, becomes the beneficiary, and is responsible for future premium payments o The sale of a life insurance policy involves the collection of insured medical records to obtain life expectancy reports, obtaining current policy values and illustrations, and the solicitation of bids.  This can be a several month process. o Before considering Life Settlement, The TOLI Center clients can obtain a Market Value Projection of the sale of a TOLI policy based on general life settlement eligibility criteria.  There is no fee for this service, no need for insured medical records and no obligation to sell a policy. Trustees use the Policy Management Alternatives Report and Life Settlement Market Value Projection to review underperforming policy options with trust parties before commiting to surrender, lapse or sale.
