How do I collect my life insurance?
There are three main ways to get cash out of your policy. You can borrow against your cash account typically with a low-interest life insurance loan, withdraw the cash (either as a lump sum or in regular payments), or you can surrender your policy.
How long does it take to cash out a life insurance policy?
Payments (minus the fees) from withdraws or loans on a life insurance policy generally are made within 14–60 days from the time the request is received.
