Assisted Living Locators partners with Rehburg Life Settlements

Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior care placement and referral service, announced they’ve partnered with Rehburg Life Settlements, a leading, nationally licensed life settlement brokerage, to provide families with an opportunity to help pay for long term care.

A life insurance settlement is a financial transaction that enables qualified life insurance policy owners to receive a cash payout on their life insurance coverage by selling it to interested buyers.

This first-of-its-kind collaboration offers seniors and their families an alternative funding solution for senior living expenses such as in-home care, assisted living or memory care, according to Assisted Living Locators CEO RN Angela Olea.

“As 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 each day, older Americans face both financial and health care challenges,” Olea stated. “Our local senior care advisors are on the frontlines in their communities every day helping guide families to the right care solution that meets their financial needs. By partnering with Rehburg Life Settlements, we can provide our clients with an important alternative funding solution that can help pay for long term care.”

“According to the Insurance Studies Institute, 500,000 seniors a year lapse their life insurance policies, translating to over $100 billion in policy value,” explained Lisa Rehburg, president of Rehburg Life Insurance Settlements. “That is a lot of potential funds that seniors are giving up, for nothing, each year. Additionally, 90% of seniors who have let a policy lapse would have considered selling it had they known life insurance settlements existed.

Metro Phoenix Bank expands outdoor media presence

Metro Phoenix Bank (OTCPink: MPHX) (“MPB”) announced a sizable credit facility to BASS, Ltd., further reinforcing MPB as a national leader in outdoor media lending. BASS, Ltd. (, established in 1992, has a prominent presence in Lafayette, Louisiana and the surrounding markets. Their desire to grow operations, convert prime billboards to digital, and refinance debt were collectively the driving factors for BASS, Ltd’s interest in MPB’s Outdoor Media Lending Program.

“All paths led to Metro Phoenix Bank for my billboard lending needs,” said BASS, Ltd. Founder Stephen Sonnier. “MPB not only understands the nuances of outdoor media lending but they were able to finance existing debt into more attractive terms. My firsthand experience with MPB was notable because they offered stellar service, were easy to work with, and got the job done. MPB has a really great team who I know will be there as I continue to grow my billboard portfolio.”

Stephen P. Haggard, President/CEO of Metro Phoenix Bank stated that, “MPB’s lending reach into yet another state is a true testament of our market-leading Outdoor Media Lending Program. There is no doubt that we are making a difference in this industry by providing experienced owner/operators with traditional financing options that were not generally available years ago. Our typical deal size is in the range of $3 to $5 million; however, we provided financing as low as $300,000 and as high as $12 million. Those numbers are meaningful but so are the relationships we are creating within the Outdoor Media industry. We look forward to a longstanding relationship with BASS, Ltd. as they continue to increase their presence in Louisiana.”
