Structured Settlement Factoring

Have you received a structured settlement recently? A structured settlement can be a good thing if you have been a victim of malfeasance, have been severely injured or can no longer physically work. Structured settlements will help you pay bills. But what do you do if you have a structured settlement, which is coming your way and you really have decided that you might prefer to have the cash instead? Well, if this is the case you are in luck because there are companies, which will buy your structured settlement for a discounted price?

This is similar to factoring which is used in businesses, which need to maintain their cash flows. They can sell accounts receivables to another company as an investment and get the money that is owed to them in advance. For instance let's say a company, which does janitorial services for a government agency, which are notoriously slow to pay and that government agency owes them $30,000 for services already completed? A factoring company will buy that check which is in the mail so to speak for $25,500 and give the money to the company now. You may say well that is 15% of the $30,000; yes it is, but if a small business does not get the money in time they could go out of business because the government is so slow to pay on their contract. Going out of business is not a good thing and if it happens all the money invested and time to build the business is out the window.

Let us say you have a structured settlement and you cash out of the deal using the same type of company? They will get the structured settlement money each month istead of you, but you will have all the money up front minus a 10-15% discount on the total money you would have received. You can then use this money for whatever you want. Such as investing, buying a house or buying new car, plasma TV and other things humans want to make them happy. You see?
