What is a structured settlement?
Basically a structured settlement is a financial or insurance arrangement defined by the IRS as period payments.
Structured settlements are most notably used in personal injury cases but also can be used in divorce settlements, lottery payouts, workers compensation claims and to structure attorney fees. Structured settlements can be considered in any transaction wherein the parties would benefit by receiving an income stream instead of up front cash. Periodic payments for personal injury settlements and workers compensation
claims are excludable from taxation.
