What Is The Highest Life Insurance Policy?

Fact-Checked | View our Editorial Guidelines

Life insurance policies are a way for individuals to ensure that their families have enough money to cover any debts and expenses after they pass away. Some policies, however, are much larger than others. Here are some of the highest life insurance policies ever sold:

Policy Value Yearly Premium Reason for Purchase
Unknown $212 million $6,148,000 Estate planning and charitable giving
Unknown Silicon Valley billionaire $201 million Unknown Payment of taxes generated by assets
Unknown individual $41 million Unknown Debt repayment
Business owner $15 million Unknown Income replacement for family
Couple $10 million Unknown Ownership transfer to family trust

Some of these policies were purchased for estate planning or charitable giving purposes, while others were meant to cover taxes or debt repayment. One policyholder even purchased a policy to ensure income replacement for their family.

In addition to traditional life insurance policies, there are also survivorship life insurance policies, which cover two individuals and only pay out after both have passed away. One couple who owned multiple businesses in real estate and technology recently purchased a $10 million survivorship policy, which they transferred to a family trust.

No matter the reason for purchasing a life insurance policy, it is important to have adequate coverage to protect loved ones in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
