    When you were first awarded your structured settlement, you probably felt a wave of relief. With litigation behind you, you shored up your financial well-being with settlement payments that would last for years.

    Because life is unpredictable, a situation may arise in which you need access to some of that money in advance. If you find yourself in a position like this, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team at Strategic Capital. Together, we can help you explore how to use your structured settlement to meet your current financial needs while keeping as much of the structure as possible intact.

    We are able to buy a portion or all of your structured settlement, depending on your needs and goals, to help you feel financially stable again. If you’re curious about how you can use your structured settlement to meet your financial needs now while still being careful about your financial future, we’d love to talk with you.

    How do you know if you should sell all or part of your structured settlement?

    Most people approach us because they’re feeling a financial pinch; maybe unexpected medical expenses arose, maybe a life change dictates that you move but you need money to put toward a home in your new area. Or, maybe you need help to catch up on your mortgage payments. Countless reasons can lead to you needing or wanting liquid money now.

    We aim to help individuals in this exact situation, but don’t assume that if you make an appointment with us, you’ll end up selling your settlement. In fact, many people approach us wanting to sell their settlement but, upon analyzing their financial situation, we would help them see that it’s not a good idea to sell.

    Additionally, we usually don’t buy all your future structured settlement payments. We know that your settlement was carefully structured to provide you with financial comfort over time. To protect that, we help you determine the right number of payments to sell in order to get the money you need now while preserving as much of the settlement as possible. In fact, about 85% of our transactions involve us buying only part of the structure and leaving the rest for your future benefit. In this way, we help customers meet their current needs while protecting their future.

    Common types of settlements include

     

    Personal Injury

    When a person has been injured and files a claim, he or she may receive compensation for injuries and damages. Regular payments from personal injury settlements help claimants with medical costs, lost income and other financial losses that may have resulted from the incident.

     

    Wrongful Death

    When you need it, it can prove very useful to draw on a wrongful death structured settlement so that you can cover any expenses you may be facing.

     

    Auto Accident

    An auto accident structured settlement may be awarded in the form of periodic payments instead of one large lump sum. You will receive the settlement funds over an extended period of time. These payments can help cover medical bills, lost income and other financial losses that may have resulted from the auto accident. The experts at Strategic Capital are committed to helping customers sell their auto accident settlements to get them the funds that they require in the short, medium and long term.

     

    Medical Malpractice

    Plaintiffs receiving these types of settlements can find themselves in difficult situations if they experience changes in their financial needs and obligations. Waiting for years to receive settlement payments is in many cases very common, yet also sometimes undesirable. This is where Strategic Capital can help.

     

    Nursing Home

    Many nursing home settlements are paid to plaintiffs over a period of time directly by the nursing home operator. Although there are benefits to this type of payment schedule, these future payments are not helpful should an urgent financial need arise now.

     

    Structured Attorneys Fees

    Structured attorney fees are an excellent asset and provide reliable cash flow for both short and long term needs.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a Structured Settlement?

    A structured settlement is a financial arrangement between an insurance company and a person that arranges for the payment of court awards and lawsuit settlements in tax free installments instead of in a single payment. Each structure is created for the specific individual so that it’s valuable and helpful for them. The payment period and amounts will vary.

    Why would I want to sell my Structured Settlements?

    Your attorney and structured settlements professional invested time, effort and expertise in creating your individual settlement plan, so we recommend that any decision you’re considering to sell the payments be carefully and seriously considered. Often, it’s just better for your situation to keep your payments rather than sell them.

    While the original settlement was set up with your future needs in mind, times change. So, you may be faced with the need to adapt to unexpected events in your life. That’s when selling part or all of your structured settlement may be a good option so you can get cash for structured settlement payments.

    Is selling Structured Settlement payments always a good plan?

    Not always. We regularly recommend that our clients not sell their payments. Sometimes it costs too much to sell a payment that you’ll receive soon. Other times, you won’t get enough cash after expenses to make it worthwhile because the payment is too small. And other times, it’s just better for your situation to keep your payments rather than sell them

    We’ll also help you identify other sources for immediate cash. For example, we helped a student get a grant for college instead of selling payments. In another case, we were able to help a homeowner renegotiate his mortgage to avoid selling the payments that were paying the monthly bills.

    If we don’t think that selling your payments is in your best interest, we’ll tell you so.

    Do I have to sell my entire settlement?

    No, many times all you need to do is to sell a part of your payments. Our team of experts will help you consider your needs and help you decide how many structured settlement payments to sell.

    Do I have to hire an attorney to give me independent legal advice?

    We always recommend that you get professional advice. Some states require that you have independent legal advice (Alaska, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Ohio). But, most states don’t require that, so you can make your own decision.

    After I talk to you about selling a Structured Settlement, how much time do I have to make a decision?

    You have as long as you need. We let you make a decision without bothering you with multiple calls every day. We believe in giving you all the time you need to make a careful and thoughtful decision.

    Quotes are valid for a limited time and your client representative will clearly explain how long you have.

After the court approval, we usually send your cash within 72 hours after we receive a copy of the court order and acknowledgment letter from your insurance company. Again your client representative can tell you when you’ll get your money.

    What’s an acknowledgment letter?

    A written confirmation from your insurance company stating they have changed their records to reflect that you’ve sold your payments.

    Can I get an advance?

    In some cases, we can make a loan advance. If you need a structured settlement advance, your client representative will be happy to discuss the options.

    How will the money be sent?

    We usually wire your money. Ask your client representative about other funding options.

    Why would I want to sell my lottery or casino payments for cash?

    It’s great that you’ve won the lottery or at casino and are getting regular payments. But, what if you’ve got something you need to take care of now – like education expenses, medical care or a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? That’s when you might want to sell lottery or casino payments for cash “today”.

    How much are my winnings or payments worth today?

    That depends on how many years of payments are left and the size of each payment. We’ll carefully calculate the current value of your winnings and give you a no-obligation valuation.

    Do I have to sell all of my annuity payments?

    No, you can sell as many of your payments as you want. You can even sell just part of your payments! For example, you can sell half of each of your next ten payments or you can sell all of your next 120 payments. We’ll work with you to find the best solution for your situation.

    If I’ve already sold payments to another company, can you still buy my annuity?

    No problem! We’ll simply buy payments that you haven’t sold and are still coming to you.
