Selling Structured Settlements Across the Globe
It’s never easy to sell all or part of a structured settlement. In fact, any company that tells you it is probably wants you to give them your entire settlement in exchange for less than it’s worth.
Ultimately, parting with some or a portion of your payments in exchange for cash should be the end result of a thoughtful, involved process. That’s the only way to make sure you’re only selling what you need — and that you’re still protecting your financial future.
If you live outside of the U.S. but have your settlement tied up here, things get even more complicated. Fortunately, we can help. We’re proud to serve people across all 50 states and beyond. Wherever you live across the globe, we can help you navigate your options with your U.S.-based settlement.
When international people have U.S. settlements or winnings
Most people who have a structured settlement in the United States are also American citizens. But there are absolutely cases where noncitizens can end up receiving future cash payments as a result of a settlement or an award that occurs in the United States.
The two most common cases we see are:
- People who get injured in the U.S. and are awarded a settlement in a U.S. court
- People who play and win a U.S. lottery while on vacation from another country
In an ideal world, that settlement or those winnings get held in a U.S.-based annuity and distributed to the person as periodic payments over a long period of time. When life happens, though, that individual might need or want to free up some of that money now.
In that case, we can help people from other countries explore selling some or all of their structured payments.
