A structured settlement establishes a stream of periodic payments funded by an annuity provided by a highly-rated life insurance company. Using a structured settlement to fund a personal physical injury claim provides payments free from federal income taxation. And, structured settlements can be used to settle non-physical injury claims as well.
Deciding to use a Structured Settlement provides many benefits:
• Favorable Federal tax–exempt status
• Favorable total yield on the fixed annuity
• Predictability of payments
• Lifetime payments and lump sum periodic payment combinations
• Financial security and freedom
With a structured settlement, you receive these benefits without the worry of managing the settlement yourself and the responsibility of generating the maximum return for you, your family or a seriously injured person. There is no other investment vehicle that gives you this peace of mind.
Claims professionals, plaintiff attorneys, judges and defense attorneys advocate the use of structured settlements because they effectively meet the needs for security and provide better benefits over time. Click here to see their supporting testimonials.
