What We Do

Chris Orestis and Retirement Genius have been helping seniors and families navigate the complex world of retirement and long-term care for more than 25 years. We provide information and resources about finances, health & well-being, senior lifestyles, retirement income, long-term care, senior entitlements, and so much more to educate people and help them access the best possible solutions to achieve a well-balanced retirement.

Aging is an inevitability for all of us, and there is no need to fear what could be some of the best and most rewarding years of your life. The key to arriving financially and physically fit are the investments you make in yourself today to create the retirement you’ve always wanted. It doesn’t matter how old you are because it’s never too late to take a positive step forward into your golden years.

Over more than 25 years, we’ve helped thousands of families find financial and physical health, and we can help you, too.

Life Settlements

A life settlement is the sale of an existing life insurance policy (typically by seniors) for more than its cash surrender value, but less than its net death benefit. In certain cases, the proceeds may be tax-advantaged and can be used for retirement, to pay medical bills, fund long-term care, or anything else you wish–it’s your money to use however you want.

There are a number of reasons that a policy owner may choose to sell their life insurance policy. They may no longer need or want their policy or the premium payments may no longer be affordable. Or perhaps the reason they initially purchased the policy no longer exists, such as the insured has outlived the beneficiary, their children are grown and financially independent, they’ve sold a home or business, or one of many other reasons.

Instead of lapsing or surrendering the policy for little to nothing, selling the policy enables the policy owner to tap into the market value of the policy, which is on average four times more than the cash surrender value. If you meet the requirements below, we highly recommend having your policy evaluated if for no other reason than to understand the market value of this asset.
