Q: Can I negotiate the terms of my structured settlement?

Do I have input on how my settlement is structured?

A:  Yes, you can negotiate the terms of your structured settlement during the settlement process. This includes the payment schedule, payment amounts, and provisions for cost-of-living adjustments, beneficiaries, or lump-sum payouts. Working with a structured settlement consultant, broker, or attorney is essential to ensure that the negotiated terms meet your financial needs.
