You Have Options When you Want to Sell Structured Settlement Payments
We want you to know that selling a structured settlement comes with many options for you. Each annuity is different so how one person would sell their structured settlement payments may be quite different from another person. The annuity can be viewed as a pie that can be cut up in any way that fits your particular needs and future goals. As an example, you could decide to sell in one of the following ways:
1) Sell a small amount of each monthly annuity payments for a ten-year period of time
2) Sell all the payments over the full term
3) Sell all of each payment for a particular period of time like ten years, fifteen years or any period that makes sense to you
4) Sell payments starting 2 year, 5 years of anytime in future
5) Sell progressively more of each monthly payment each year. In other words, you could sell $200 of a $500 payment for the first year, then sell $250 the next year and so on.
You have many options when you choose to sell structured settlement payments, so it is important to speak with one of our experts here at Mainstreet Funding who have the experience and know-how to help you design a plan to get you the money you need now while ensuring you have money in the future to cover any more income needs.

What is the process to sell structured settlement payments?
The majority of the states have passed a structured settlement statute, based upon a federal statute, that provides the rules to transfer structured settlement payments to a third-party. However, some of these states have added additional requirements beyond what is included in the federal statute. That statute governs how to transfer your payments to us. There are certain requirements that must be met in order to be compliant with the statute. For example, some states require you to seek independent professional advise before you sell structured settlement payments. Not necessary in other states, but could provide you an additional level of comfort. Each state requires that you receive a disclosure statement which provides you a summary of the agreed upon terms of the transaction. If you would like to learn more about the disclosure statement, review our other post which details the disclosure statement. After a particular waiting period from 3 days to 10 days, depending on the state, you will receive a contract, also known as a transfer agreement. After the contract is executed, then a court order will be pursued in which a judge will determine that the transaction to sell structured settlement payments is in your best interest. Once the judge has approved the transaction, then you will receive your cash.
