Structured Settlements

What is a structured settlement?

happycoupleA structured settlement is simply a mechanism that allows plaintiffs to have a portion of their personal injury or wrongful death settlement paid out in future tax-free periodic payments.

The design of the payments is limited only to the imagination – giving the plaintiff complete flexibility in securing their financial future. Historically, damages from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit were paid in a single lump sum at the time of the settlement. This kind of payment placed plaintiffs and their families in the position of having to manage a large sum of money, which is often intended to provide for a lifetime of medical and income needs. Structured settlements were devised to alleviate the difficulty of this situation and to provide long-term financial security for families.

A structured settlement also makes it an ideal financial vehicle for many of life’s other fiscal challenges such as financing a child’s college education, planning for retirement, estate planning, responsible investing throught dollar cost averaging, or fixed income investing.
