If This Describes You, Dont Cash out Your Annuity

There are companies that purchase future payments. Personal injury settlements are often structured to pay out over time. As are a portion of lottery wins, paid via an annuity over a period of 20 or more years. There are companies, under the authority of state and federal regulations, that will accelerate future payments and pay out a lump sum of cash now.

But, it is not the best choice for everyone. If any of the below are true about you, avoid selling.

· No pressing financial need or opportunity

· Under the age of 18

· Annuity is sole source of income

· Live in North Carolina

· Monthly payments less than $100

· Lump sum payment more than 7 years away

· Significant amounts owed in child support or back taxes

While this list isn't comprehensive, it does cover many of the usual reasons cases are not accepted or approved. This court ordered process has strict state and federal guidelines. Numerous attorneys, yours, the insurance company's, and the cash out company are involved and the entire transaction must be approved by a judge.

And as always, seek legal and financial counsel before making any significant decisions. There are several established companies with reputable service history and there are many more companies with less than clear intentions. Rule of thumb, avoid any company that tells you what you want to hear. This transaction will be expensive and closing times vary wildly by state and transaction.
