What is a Structured Settlement?

A structured settlement is a series of payments that are paid over time to a plaintiff in a lawsuit to cover damages. Settlement payments can provide reliable funds over a period of time to help an injured party manage unexpected or unpredictable medical expenses. Some claimants may feel a sense of financial security by receiving the periodic payments scheduled in a structured settlement annuity when compared with a lump sum payment. 

What is a Structured Settlement Broker?

A structured settlement broker is a person with required credentials, including a life insurance license, who represents a party in a lawsuit in proposing, planning, and obtaining a structured settlement to settle a settlement or judgment.

Settlement Consultant Certifications

Professionals who work with structured settlements, including those from life insurance companies and factoring companies, may earn a pair of certifications through a professional group called The National Structured Settlements Trade Association. The first certification is to be classified as a Certified Structured Settlement Consultant (CSSC). The CSSC requires more than 80 hours of class instruction and learning prior to an examination. The second certification is the Master’s Certificate in Structured Settlement Consulting (MSSC). Eligibility fo the MSSC requires a combination of a CSSC and seven years structured settlement industry experience.
