Guaranteed Future Payments

A structured settlement is defined as a legal settlement paid out as an annuity rather than in a lump sum, usually with certain tax advantages for the recipient and a savings for the payer.

With a structured settlement, the amount of the payments and the frequency with which they are disbursed will vary case by case as the circumstances that led to the decision to fund through a structured settlement rather than a single lump sum at settlement are unique for each situation.

Who is Involved

The key parties involved in determining the structured settlement amount and payment schedule include:

Plaintiff:
This is the person who has been wronged and has filed a civil claim, such as a personal injury or wrongful death claim, to seek compensation.

Defendant:
The defendant is the person or entity who is being accused of harming or wronging the plaintiff. If found to be negligent in a civil suit, the defendant must pay damages through their insurance company.

Insurance company:
There are multiple insurance companies involved including the defendant's insurance company who will generally facilitate the purchase of an annuity from a highly rated life insurance company.
