FAQ: What are my Settlement Options?

Two settlement options are available to settle your claim. The first would pay the entire amount at the time of settlement in the form of a single lump sum payment. A second alternative option is a periodic payment settlement, commonly referred to as a “structured settlement”, that could pay an initial cash payment plus a series of benefits over a period of time. The amount and frequency of the payments can be designed to meet individual needs and objectives.
