After a cancer diagnosis, getting financial assistance is a key element to reducing stress and having peace of mind for you and your family. While financial implications of paying for cancer care may not be the first concern for patients, for many, it quickly becomes one. Cancer is one of the five most costly medical conditions in the United States and many patients with insurance feel the financial squeeze of treating their disease.
While cancer patients age 65 or older are typically covered by Medicare, those who are younger either have private coverage, Medicaid or other public insurance, or they are uninsured. Even those with private insurance may face high health care costs that can lead to significant financial burdens and even bankruptcy.
As you start to feel the financial pressure of the medical bills, you start wondering…“How am I going to pay for medical treatments in addition to all of your regular living expenses?”
The process is simple: if you qualify, Fifth Season will advance you funds based on the face value of your life insurance policy. In addition, Fifth Season will take over your premium payments, providing even more immediate relief to you and your family. There are literally no remaining out-of-pocket expenses during your lifetime, freeing up your finances to devote to the things that matter most.
That’s why we call our financial assistance program Funds for Living. Fifth Season provides immediate money for terminally ill patients to maximize your quality of life now, while also allowing you to leave additional funds to your beneficiaries later.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, metastatic to the liver, stage IV. We began to experience some financial hardship and I found out about Fifth Season on the internet and applied for the loan, was approved promptly. I would recommend this program as well as this company to any other cancer patient that is experiencing financial hardship. Once we were approved for the loan, our financial burdens were lifted and it’s an excellent company. Fifth Season gave me financial peace of mind, and allowed me to focus my energy on my condition, and my family’s well-being…thank you.”

Cancer… Bills… Prescriptions… Every night as my head hit the pillow my mind raced with stress and fear.My tears spilled out when my husband fell asleep. I prayed for help. I wanted to share whatever time I had left creating memories with my husband and little girl. I wanted to live my life. Stress was overshadowing my ability to fight the cancer. I called my life insurance agent to take a loan on my policy, but the amount wasn’t worth the paperwork. He suggested Fifth Season to me and explained the concept of using my life insurance while I was still alive… I called immediately and was treated with compassion and respect. We made a family decision to use my life insurance to live in the present and enjoy our lives while I fight the tough cancer battle. It is the best decision we have ever made… I’m still creating memories which my husband and little girl will never forget!”

We are very satisfied and relieved now thanks to Fifth Season. We are extremely likely to recommend the Funds for Living Program to family and friends. Fifth Season has helped in giving back a stress free time for us. The advance we received will be used to pay-off all of our jointly debt and it will allow us to achieve our dream of owning our own home. The whole experience has been positive. Eric was very helpful, understanding and never got bothered with any of our questions. I believe Fifth Season is staffed with compassionate and caring people, and do everything they can. The Funds for Living program has 100% addressed our needs. Fifth Season has given us back our financial freedom. We are now able to concentrate on making happy memories.”

I have been looking for financial help since my tumor started to grow again. It is hard enough dealing with cancer treatment, medical visits, and medical bills, so I considered selling my life insurance policy (viatical settlement) and whole life insurance. Fifth Season Financial was able to address my financial situation 100%. The “Funds for Living” process went well. Eric Smith answered all questions I had and responded right away. I am very satisfied with Fifth Season’s Funds for Living Program and a fan of the program. Since I was able to use my life insurance as an asset with the “Funds for Living” program, I will be spending funds on my family. These funds will help me keep up with my bills and possibly go on the vacation I was never able to pay for. Others should be aware of ALL OPTIONS when seeking financial help for cancer, so I will refer other’s to Fifth Season.”
My daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer and had to have surgery just over a year ago. I was seeking financial help for my daughter so she could receive the medical care she needs, alternative and nutritional treatments, and pay for medical bills. Fifth Season Financial was able to provide a life insurance loan for my daughter’s Term Life Insurance Policy, which allowed our family to have the cash advance we need today to get help for my daughter now.”
Allen in New Jersey
I received a loan on my insurance policy. Eric was so helpful. After all required information to obtain the loan was supplied, it was just a short time before we received the moneyThe process was very easy and Fifth Seasons always informed us every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone. After everything was completed, Eric would contact me to see if everything was okay. When my husband passed, I called and sent the required documents. They did the rest. I felt that they were so helpful. Fifth seasons is very reliable.”
