The true story of the McMullins, a couple from Godfrey, IL whose financial lives were saved when GWG Life bought their life insurance policy days before it would have lapsed and left them with nothing. GWG Life is the second-ranked company in the life insurance secondary market, according to The Deal. It provides seniors hundreds of millions of dollars in funds for life insurance policies they can no longer afford or are ready to lapse. The money is beyond what their life insurance carriers are offering. These funds are a lifesaver for many seniors who face high health care costs in retirement or need more money for other costs. GWG Life has been in business since 2006 and is a publicly traded firm under the Nasdaq symbol GWGH.
