What is the definition

A structured
                                                Periodic Payments

person who has

What is the definition of a
structured settlement?

These payments are
sometimes called “periodic
payments.” Often it will be
created through the
purchase of one or more
annuities, which guarantee
the future payments. So,
normally you will need to
investigate, not only
structured settlements, but
annuities as well.

Am I able to put
down structured
settlements as
collateral for a loan?


Usually, it can’t be listed
as collateral, but one way
that it does help is that
you can list it as a form
of income. This can be
very helpful if you are
making a big purchase,
like a house.

Will I receive interest
on money I get from
a structured
settlement?


No. The interest is
included and, is therefore,
tax-free.
The only way to get
additional interest, is to
invest your payments.
Of course, that money
would be taxable, just like
any other investment.
Will I receive interest
on money I get from
a structured
settlement?


Make sure you ask
questions if there is
something that you
don’t understand.
Be sure that you
understand everything
and that everything is
clear to both you and to
your attorney.

Will I receive interest
on money I get from
a structured
settlement?


Once the papers are signed,
it’s non negotiable and you
have to be happy with what
you have been given, so it’s
a good idea to be clear on all
the details.
Ask all of the questions that
you want to know, and get
all of the facts.

There are ways to “cash” out your
settlement and get your structured
settlement money, which we’ll
discuss in a later video.
