What is a structured settlement?

 

A structured settlement is a financial agreement that allows court-awarded payments to

be paid in periodic installments over time (whether over a fixed period of time or continuously during the recipient’s lifetime), rather than being paid in a lump sum.

Do I have to sell my complete structured settlement payments? Or, can I sell a portion of my structured settlement payments?

You do not have to sell your entire structured settlement payment funds. You are able to

sell a portion of the structured settlement payment funds instead. We will be there to advise you, based on your needs only, on the appropriate course of action to take when deciding the amount of your structured settlement payment funds to sell.

What are some types of financial needs that are considered a reason to sell payments?

Will I be required to appear in court?

Yes, all transfers do typically require court approval, and most districts will require you to

appear in court in order to follow best practices and to protect the individual so that he or she understands the sale process and that the transfer is in his or her best interest.

Are there any tax penalties from selling my structured payouts?

As we are not entitled to offer tax advice, we can say that the IRS did issue a prior ruling

confirming that the sale of a structured payout would not create tax penalties. You should be able avoid any tax penalties as long as the transfer complies with federal and state laws. It is noted that the government has concurred that any money coming from a pain and suffering settlement is tax exempt. We do recommend to speak with a professional tax advisor regarding any potential tax implications for your best interest.

Absolutely not. At We Pay More Funding, we do not have any hidden fees. We take care

of all costs that are associated with the transaction process.
