Making long-term decisions during the settlement process can be overwhelming. Structured settlements can alleviate some of the stress by addressing specific financial needs and providing peace of mind. Customized payment streams can be designed to meet virtually any type of future need – lifetime payments, ongoing medical needs, retirement planning, college tuition, or other financial concerns.

“Structured settlements are beneficial since an injured party may lack the experience to invest substantial funds from a settlement. Unlike traditional investments that ride the unpredictable ups and downs of the stock market, structured annuities provide tax-free security with guaranteed payments tailored to meet specific needs and ensure the plaintiff does not outlive their assets.”


Structured settlements are beneficial since an injured party may lack the experience to invest substantial funds from a settlement. Unlike traditional investments that ride the unpredictable ups and downs of the stock market, structured annuities provide tax-free security with guaranteed payments tailored to meet specific needs and ensure the plaintiff does not outlive their assets. Even after the recent economic downturn in 2008, not a single structured annuity payment was affected. Payments continued to be made on time with no change in the benefit amount.

A structured settlement should always be considered in cases involving injured minors. Structured annuity payments will safeguard against frivolous decisions when the minor turns 18 and has access to the settlement funds. Instead, a payment stream can be designed to help with future medical needs and life events such as attending college or purchasing a home.

Atlas Settlement Group provides settlement planning service at no cost to the injured party. Regardless of the injury or settlement amount, structured annuities can be beneficial to the plaintiff’s future.
