ORS 744.341¹
Terms of contract

(1) A life settlement contract must be in writing. A life settlement provider shall establish in the contract the terms under which the life settlement provider will pay compensation or anything of value in return for the policyholder’s or certificate holder’s assignment, transfer, sale, devise or bequest of the death benefit or ownership of the insurance policy or certificate to the life settlement provider.

(2) A life settlement provider shall not use a life settlement contract form or provide to an owner a disclosure statement form in this state unless the life settlement provider has filed the form with the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services and the director has approved the form. The director shall disapprove a life settlement contract form if, in the director’s opinion, the contract or any provision of the contract is unreasonable, contrary to the interests of the public, otherwise misleading or unfair to the policyholder or certificate holder or in violation of any of the requirements of ORS 744.318 (Definitions for ORS 744.318 to 744.384) to 744.384 (Rules), 744.991 (Criminal penalties) and 744.992 (Civil penalties).

(3) Each life settlement contract entered into in this state must contain a provision enabling the policyholder or certificate holder to rescind the contract not later than the 60th day after the date on which the contract is executed by all parties or not later than the 30th day after the policyholder or certificate holder receives the life settlement proceeds, whichever is the lesser period. In order to rescind such a contract, a policyholder or certificate holder who has received the proceeds must return them to the life settlement provider. [1995 c.342 §11; 2009 c.711 §8]
