Rescission Period in the context of life settlements refers to a specific timeframe, as governed by state law, during which the seller of a life insurance policy has the right to reverse a life settlement transaction. In regulated states, this period typically spans 15 days, starting from the receipt of any proceeds paid by the life settlement provider.

During the rescission period, the policy seller can thoroughly reconsider their decision and, if they choose to do so, cancel the life settlement agreement without facing any adverse consequences. To ensure an effective rescission, the seller is required to return the settlement proceeds they received, along with any premiums paid by the buyer, to the Life Settlement Provider within the designated rescission period.

The Rescission Period acts as a protective measure for policy sellers, allowing them ample time to carefully review the terms and implications of the life settlement transaction before committing to it. This safeguards their interests and provides a level of assurance in the life settlement process.
