About Mason Finance

Mason Finance was founded on the idea that access to the right information and excellent financial services has no retirement date. Everyone, regardless of age, deserves honest financial products that are designed for them. We have a passion for technology but an even deeper desire to help people get more out of their lives. Living longer is one of our greatest accomplishments but millions of people aging in poverty threatens its legacy. We’re spreading the word about the option to sell your life insurance because we know that many people surrender or lapse their policies without the knowledge of a life settlement. This keeps us up at night. At Mason Finance we believe in the power of information, life settlements, viatical settlements, and annuities to empower people to take control of their financial lives as they age.
