FLAG Program Delivers 29% Increase In Financial Assistance, Launching New Campaign in 2016

Fifth Season Financial has been providing funds to people with cancer and other advanced stage illnesses since 2007.

"Our goal in the coming year is to help more individuals living with serious illness find the financial help they need."

Fifth Season Financial (, a leading financial resource for patients with advanced stage illnesses since 2007, continues to grow and help more and more families overcome their financial obstacles caused by their diagnosis.

Fifth Season’s core program, re-launched as “FLAG – Funds for Living And Giving” last year, unlocks an often over-looked financial asset, advancing funds against the face value of an individual’s life insurance policy. As patients battling cancer and other serious illnesses face staggering increases in the cost of care and other expenses during their treatment, a FLAG advance can help by providing significant funds that can be used without restrictions. Free from financial strain, individuals who qualify can use their FLAG advance to live their best quality of life possible.

In 2015, Fifth Season helped more people in need access more funds than ever. The number of individuals taking a FLAG advance increased 19% in 2015 over the prior 12 month period. The amount of actual funds delivered increased even more significantly, with a 29% increase in dollars advanced over the previous year. Fifth Season has partnered with hundreds of advisors, patients and their families and provided over $75 million since 2007 through their innovative solutions.

Adam Balinsky, Fifth Season’s President, said “Seeing the numbers of families we were able to assist this past year is incredibly gratifying. But there’s significantly more work to do. Every day, we talk to patients in physical and financial distress who are unaware that they may have options available to them. Our goal in the coming year is to reach significantly more people in need, make sure they know how our program works, and help more individuals living with serious illness find the financial help they need.”

To gain additional exposure and understanding, Fifth Season recently launched a new website at, with more detailed information on the FLAG program and its services. Included is a new explainer video, helping individuals understand how the program works in a mere 90 seconds (the video can be viewed here). The site and video will be promoted on social channels and through additional advertising and marketing efforts.
