Selling a settlement may sound complicated and seems as though you’re trading money that isn’t yours yet. Rather than waiting for small checks to come in periodic installments, turning to a settlement payment service is a good option. An entire agreement for this transaction must be legally approved by court before any money is processed. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about any additional legal problems. The service that buys your settlement then becomes the recipient of the periodic payments, while you receive all of the money up front, in one lump sum payment.
