How can I borrow money from my life insurance policy?
71% of people found this answer helpful

Borrowing money from a life insurance is relatively simple, so long as there is cash value to meet your loan requirements. Most insurance carriers have a department that can handle that request by simply calling them. The carrier will point out the interest to be charged and the way the loan can be repaid.

Depending on the insurance carrier and the type of life insurance product, there could be potential impacts that you should be aware of when taking a loan against the cash value. Some of these details may be listed on the terms of agreement, but others may not. You may want to consider reaching out with the agent that help you to review any potential concerns. For example, the death benefit would generally be reduced by the loan amount. Another concern would be if the cash value could continue to earn interest or dividends, or purchase additional paid up insurance with a loan in place.

The process would be generally simple, due to cash value being available and the motivation by carrier to earn some interest. You as the insured are simply paying yourself back.
