One often over looked options when it comes to selling structured settlement payments is the possiblity of cashing out what are known as life contingent structured settlement annuity payments. What are life contingent payments?
Structured settlements often contain two “types” of settlement payments. The first type are generally called “guaranteed” structured settlement payments. These are settlement annuity payments that are made regardless of whether the original payee is living at the time the settlement payments become due. For example, Plaintiff accepts a structured settlement that provides for a lump sum due 30 years from today. Unfortunately, Plaintiff passes away in year twenty; i.e., 10 years before the structured settlement lump sum payment is due. What happens to that lump sum payment? Well the annuity issuer is still obligated to make the structured settlement payment and pays it to the Plainiff’s beneficiary, estate, assignee or heir.
A Life contingent structured settlement is different. In the case of life contingent structured settlement payments the settlement payment or payments ONLY get made by the annuity issuer if the original payee is living at the time the settlement payment becomes due. Using the above example with the lump sum payment due in 30 years and the Plaintiff that passes away 10 years before that structured settlement payment is due, if the lump sum structured settlement is life contingent, the Plaintiff’s beneficiary, estate, assignee, or heir will receive nothing. The annuity issuer’s obligation to make the structured settlement payment ceases upon the Plaintiff’s death.
