Settle for periodic payments to take advantage of guaranteed, tax-free payments

Our structured settlements are designed to provide injured claimants with financial security through tax-free, guaranteed payment streams that they can customize to fit their specific needs.1 Defendants can also benefit from purchasing this annuity for the injured claimant as it is a strong negotiating tool that can assist in expediting the settlement, and help eliminate investment risks. 

Structuring your attorney fees offers you the opportunity to receive steady, guaranteed income, and gives you:
  • Customized payment streams
  • Tax deferral2
  • Hassle-free payments

Structured settlements for minors

Secure guaranteed income to ensure the financial future for minors.

Structured settlement awards for minors can help them get a head start in life. For example, a judge might order that annuity payments should begin payouts to coincide with the child’s expected college tuition bill. The court order can also approve payments to help with costs of living, or deferred lump sum payments that can be used for major life events, such as the purchase of a house or the start of a business venture.

Risks of Factoring

1 All guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims paying ability of the issuing MetLife company.

2 Attorneys will generally need to have a fee arrangement in place at the time of settlement which provides for the structuring of payments solely from the claimant’s settlement proceeds. Structuring of attorney fees could have important legal and tax consequences. Attorneys should consult with their own tax and legal advisors prior to agreeing to structure legal fees to determine the tax and other legal consequences. The method of tax reporting with respect to such fees is subject to change, where we deem such change to be required under the Federal tax law or IRS guidance.
