Improving Your World
Remember that the goal of selling your settlement payments should be to improve your present without sacrificing your future – strive to make a decision that does both. To that end, remember these tips:
- Sell only the payments that you have to: Do not sell more payments than you need to; you can sell those later if necessary.
- Attorney Matt Bracy, a lawyer specializing in structured settlement and sales, said that you must be sure that you can live without your future payments, saying, “One thing that potential sellers of structured settlement payments should carefully consider is whether they depend on the payments being assigned. No one should sell payments that they need in order to make ends meet, or if they are needed for medical treatment or care.”
- Consult a financial advisor: Talk to a financial planner or trusted, knowledgeable advisor and get their input on this important decision.
- Build a budget to ensure that you manage your money well into the future.
