Selling My Structured Settlement Payments in California

Sometimes, the regular payment schedule of a structured settlement just does not suit your needs. Maybe you’re looking to renovate your house or fund an education. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking for a company that purchases structured settlement payments in California, J.G. Wentworth can assist you. 

What is a structured settlement?

If you live in California and have a structured settlement, you most likely obtained it as a result of a personal injury or wrongful death claim. In the resolution of your case, you received a settlement that consists of regular payments to be paid by the defendant’s insurance company. The amount of each payment and the exact delivery schedule depends on the terms agreed upon during your case.

Why would I sell my structured settlement payments?

You may have any number of reasons for selling your structured settlement payments. The lump sum you receive from selling all or part of your payments can be used however you wish, although it’s a good idea to have a plan for how you intend to use your lump sum. Before you complete the sale of your payments, you will need to appear in court, and a judge will typically ask you about your plans before approving the sale. Some of the reasons our California customers sell their structured settlement payments include:
  • Real Estate Purchases - Many of our customers use their lump sum for a significant real estate purchase, such as making a down payment towards a new home, or even a rental property. Or, you can use your lump sum to increase your home's property value through renovation.
  • Life Expenses - Some of the most joyous occasions in life, like weddings and births, entail some big expenses. The sale of  your structured settlement payments can help you tackle these milestones.
  • New Business Ventures - Opportunities to start your own business come few and far between. With a lump sum of cash, you could invest in exciting new ventures.
