Structured Settlement Payments - The Who and The What
by Richard M
A structured settlement is a series of payments made over a period of time. People usually get them as a result of a lawsuit. For various reasons, people who receive these payments, sometimes wish to cash them out and get a lump sum payment. There are a number of companies around who are willing to do this. You may have even seen these offers on TV. Apparently, this situation is more prevalent than one might think. Its also profitable for the companies who offer this service. Since both parties get what they want, its a win win situation, if its fair deal.
To be comfortable that you are getting a decent payout, you should do some research. Look around at all the various offers and terms to find the one that appeals to you. I suggest that you search the net to do this. Find a company that feels comfortable to you. Maybe you want to deal with a middleman. However, youll most likely wan tot go to a company that funds your payout with their own money.
Ill present some information to you in what I think is a clear and concise manner. Its up to you to review it and make up your own mind. Remember, dont just jump at the first offer you see. Even though it may ultimately be the best, youll have peace of mind if you check out more companies.
