Structured settlements are a unique compensation agreement made after an accident, in which the victim receives periodic payment instead of a one off lump sum. These payments guarantee a stable income over the life of the contract, and provide financial security in a time of high levels of unemployment and redundancy.

Additionally, they guarantee asufficient return from the interest generated, which is usually better than the rate you would find at a bank.

How To Make A Lottery Windfall A Life Win
Let’s presume that you, like many of us, do not know how to manage money. That is a paradigm that must change or all is lost. Literally. The following guidelines will help:
  1. Since your first decision is likely to advise your lottery benefactor whether you want the money in a lump sum or as a structured settlement payment; that is, monthly payments for the duration of the value of your winnings. For now, take the structured settlement because a lump sum payment will be less than the advertised winnings. You can always change it later.
  2. Buy professional, trustworthy financial planning advice. You have the money, buy the advice; the small investment will be worth the development of a sound financial plan that will keep you solvent with your dreams for life.
  3. Tell your advisor what you want to do with your money, but be prepared to listen and take some hard advice. You do not want to be in that 70 percentile.
  4. Now, about the structured settlement. If your lottery win was $10 million and you had that arranged in monthly payments for 20 years (240 months), your monthly income would exceed $41,000. You can live on that, and then some. However, since you are going to be dealing with taxes – and you will certainly need your financial advisor for that! – consider a worst case that half of that will go to taxes. Can you live on $20,000 per month? We thought so.
  5. Now, regarding the structured settlement, you can modify it. Let’s say you decide, with your advisor’s approval, that you want to buy the big house in the trees on the lake. You can sell a portion of your structured settlement in a lump-sum payment to cover the down payment, or maybe even the entire purchase price. The rest of your structured settlement remains in place, paying out in its regular monthly payments.
