About Structured Settlements

A Safe & Reliable Solution

What is a Structured Settlement?

A structured settlement is a voluntary agreement reached between a plaintiff and a defendant under which the claimant’s settlement proceeds are disbursed in a series of periodic payments. Structured settlement annuities offer valuable advantages for physical injury and non-physical injury cases.

Benefits of Tax-Free & Taxable Structured Annuities
  • Tax-Free Income for Physical Injury Cases: The full amount of the structured settlement payments including growth is exempt from federal and state income taxes under 104(a) of the IRS codes.
  • Tax-Deferred Income for Non-Physical Injury Cases: The claimant receives the benefit of tax-deferral on their payments along with competitive rates of return.
  • Competitive Rate of Return: Structured settlements typically offer rates of return that are competitive with many traditional investment vehicles, without the risk of market volatility.
  • Safe and Reliable: The claimant receives guaranteed*payments from one of the safest investments available: An annuity issued by a highly-rated life insurance company.
  • Customized Payment Options: The periodic payment schedule offers a variety of options to help fit the claimant’s financial needs.

*Guarantees are subject to the claims-paying abilities of the issuing insurance company.
