What is a Structured Settlement - Simon Volkov

A common question asked by parents of injured children is "What is a structured settlement for minors and how will it help my child?" In the simplest terms, it is a financial tool for safeguarding monetary awards acquired through a lawsuit.

The best approach for fully understanding what is a structured settlement is to consult with a lawyer. This is especially important when children have sustained injuries due to an automobile accident or negligence of another person.

Since there are so many variables involved with personal injury cases, it is imperative to get help from legal professionals. With that being said, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of structured settlement annuities and compensation plans.

Structured settlement brokers facilitate negotiations for the development of annuity payments to individuals who have been injured. Structured settlements are often used to payout large financial awards over an extended period of time. In addition to injury compensation, structured settlements are also used to payout lottery jackpot winnings.

Structured settlement brokers advise lawyers about the various annuity plans available to clients and assist in the sale of future annuity payments. Brokers provide required information for settlement offers; answer questions regarding offers; and assist in negotiating the best deal for attorney's clients.

Annuity Payment

Annuity payment refers to monetary compensation which is paid out over a specified period of time. Often referred to as 'structured' payments, annuities generally stem from insurance settlements or jackpot lottery winnings. Individuals entitled to annuity payments are known as the 'Annuitant'.

When an annuity payment is provided through an insurance company, they are referred to as structured settlements. This type of transaction occurs when the Annuitant is compensated for injury or illness which was caused by the negligence of another. Structured settlement annuity payments are tax-free.

Annuity payments paid to the Annuitant through an insurance company are called Structured Settlements. Payments from a structured settlement are not subject to income tax as long as the money received is the result of a personal physical injury or illness.

Structured Settlement

A structured settlement is a financial agreement between an insurance company and individual that provides periodic payments to a claimant instead of a lump sum payment. In addition to the agreement other structured settlement documents include a qualified assignment, annuity application, and annuity policy. If a minor files a claim, a court order will also be included.

Payments from a structured settlement are not subject to income tax. However, if annuity payments are made to an estate, they are subject to estate tax. Structured settlements are regulated by both state and federal laws under the Structured Settlement Protection Acts, which are enforced in 36 of the 50 states in the U.S.
