Benefits of a Structured Settlement
A structured settlement may offer various advantages:
- Payments from a structured settlement do not count for income tax purposes.
- Income from a structured settlement will not affect eligibility for government benefits.
- Structured settlements offer significant flexibility in terms of payment amounts and duration.
- If the recipient of a structured settlement dies, a designated heir can receive any remaining payments, tax-free.
The amount and duration of structured settlement payments will vary on a case to case basis. At times, payments may increase or be supplemented by larger payouts. A qualified assignee will be designated to structure such payments and to purchase an annuity from an insurance company. Once the annuity is set, a lump sum may be set aside to fund a trust or cover attorney fees.
Structured Settlements & Special Needs Trusts
A structured settlement may be ideally suited as part or all the funding for a special needs trust for a disabled beneficiary, because of its tax benefits, ability to provide stable income, and guarantees from leading insurance companies. Using a structured settlement to fund a special needs trust can also keep administration costs lower, as only the assets in the trust will be subject to fees.
