About Selling your Structured Settlement Annuity

What is a structured settlement annuity?

A structured settlement annuity is a contract issued by an insurance company to fund the payment of damages for personal injury over a period of time.  It is sometimes referred to as an insurance settlement.

It guarantees you in the event of your death, your beneficiary, a tax free payment or a series of payments over a fixed period of time.

Most structured settlements are the result of a lawsuit—they are payments resulting from a court action.

Back to Top

Is it legal for you to sell your structured settlement payments?

Yes.  You can sell your structured settlement or insurance settlement payments.

Most states have a Structured Settlement Protection Act.  These laws allow you to sell your payments if the following requirements are met:

  • You must be given full disclosure about the financial terms of your sale.
  • You have a “cooling off period” after you sign documents to change your mind and cancel the sale.
  • You must be advised in writing to seek independent professional advice regarding your sale.  In some states you can choose to waive the advice.
  • A hearing is held where a judge considers your case and decides whether to approve the sale.  The judge will examine your financial situation, what you want to do with the money and whether it is in your best interests to sell payments.
  • The judge must issue a court order approving the sale.

Back to Top

What if your settlement agreement or annuity policy contains anti-sale or anti-assignment language?

Anti-assignment or anti-sale language does not prevent you from selling your payments. 

Some settlement agreement or annuity policies contain anti-sale or anti-assignment wording such as:

none of the periodic payments may be accelerated, deferred, increased or decreased and may not be anticipated, sold, assigned or encumbered.”

Since you must get a court order approving the sale of your payments, a judge will review and evaluate your case.

Judges have the power to approve the sale, even if there is language in your settlement agreement or structured settlement annuity policy that attempts to prevent you from selling your payments.

Back to Top

Can you sell just some of your structured settlement payments or do you have to sell them all?

You can sell some or all of your payments.

You can create more than one case file online with different payment combinations and get more than one set of price quotes so as to best meet your financial needs.

If you only sell some of your payments your insurance company will continue to pay you the payments you still own as and when those payments are due.

Back to Top

What if you have sold some of your structured settlement payments in the past?  Can you sell more now to the Certified Funders registered with Settlement Quotes?

Yes.  If you have sold some of your structured settlement payments in the past you can sell any remaining payments to which you are still a payee.

Do you have to pay tax on the money you receive on the sale of your structured settlement payments?

The money you receive from selling your structured settlement payments will have the same tax treatment as the payments you receive from your structured settlement annuity.

If you currently receive your payments tax free the money you receive from selling your payments will be tax free.

In most cases your structured settlement annuity payments are tax free because your annuity was set up to qualify for tax free treatment under section 130 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The U.S. Federal Government has taken several steps to insure that payments received for damages from personal injuries will be tax free.

Section 104(a)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code confirms that damages received for personal injury or sickness are not considered income and are not subject to tax.

In 2002 federal legislation was passed to protect payees in the sale of their structured settlement payments.  As a result, Section 5891 was added to the Internal Revenue Code.

Section 5891 requires the sale of structured settlement payments must be approved by a court in accordance with the relevant State statute. 

Please note that this information is provided as a courtesy only and does not constitute legal advice.  You should seek legal or other professional advice to address your specific circumstances.

What happens if you are in bankruptcy proceedings and have not yet been discharged?

We can quote on your payments even if you are in bankruptcy proceedings and have not yet been discharged.

If you are in bankruptcy proceedings you will need to let us know prior to having your case quoted so that we may speak to your trustee in bankruptcy or legal representative to obtain additional facts.

Our Certified Funders reserve the right to deduct a fee for additional work in processing cases that have not yet been discharged from a bankruptcy.

Back to Top

Is the transaction and dealing with a funder risk free?

You do not give up any rights when selling a structured settlement until the transaction is completed and you are fully paid the selling price. Furthermore, your case is protected by the court and a judge's order requires the funding company to perform its obligations. You are fully protected.

Back to Top

If you are a minor child are you able to sell your structured settlement payments?

Settlement Quotes does not offer quotes to annuitants who are minor children because those persons do not have legal capacity to sell their payments without the intervention of a litigation or personal property guardian.

Back to Top

Are you legally permitted to sell workers compensation payments?

It is not legal for you to sell structured settlement annuities arising from workers compensation claims. You must keep the annuity until all of the payments are made to you.

Back to Top

How many quotes do you receive from Settlement Quotes?

We will share with you the top quote we receive from our Certified Funders.  The number of quotes we receive will depend on the number of participating Certified Funders at the time you enter your case onto the Settlement Quotes Web Site.

Back to Top

Are each of the quotes you receive a guaranteed offer to buy your structured settlement payments?

Yes. The price quotes you receive are guaranteed offers to buy your structured settlement payments.
We guarantee:

  1. You get a superior price from each of our Certified Funders up front, without hassle.
  2. You will get your guaranteed price quote fast---in less than 24 hours and often in as little time as 2 hours.
  3. Each price quote constitutes an offer to buy your annuity payments which remains open for acceptance for 24 hours after posting in order to provide you time to decide.  If you do not accept an offer within 24 hours from the date the offer is posted, the offer may still be valid or may be revoked or amended in the discretion of the respective Certified Funder on a case by case basis.  You are advised to contact Settlement Quotes at 1-888-665-1257 to confirm the availability of such offers if the 24 hours period has expired.

Back to Top

Are you obligated to sell if you request a price quote?

There is no obligation for you to accept an offer to buy.  You may decide that you do not wish to sell your annuity in which case we will close your file until further notice from you.

Back to Top

How much time do you have to accept an offer?

Each offer provided by our Certified Partners is open for acceptance for a period of 24 hours following posting. To accept just contact us by phone at 1-888-665-1257 and notify one of our customer service experts that you accept and wish to proceed with your sale.

Back to Top

What happens if you accept an offer and then decide you want to cancel?

You should not indicate your acceptance of an offer until you are sure you want to proceed with the sale.  However, even if you do accept and receive sale documents, there is generally a “cooling off” period in which you may change your mind and cancel the transaction. The cooling off time period is clearly stated on either the Disclosure Statement or Sale and Assignment Agreement you receive as part of the sale documentation.

Back to Top

When will you find out which Certified Funder provided the highest price quote?

You will be notified by email or telephone who the successful Certified Funder is immediately upon your acceptance of an offer to buy. You can have peace of mind that each Funder is vetted by Settlement Quotes and certified to be reliable, trustworthy, and competent to complete your transfer and get you your money in the fastest time permitted by law.
