In 1989, an oncoming truck in the wrong lane hit our car head on, injuring three in our family. As we looked at options for our lawsuit settlement, the structured settlement stood far above everything else. We wanted guarantees. We wanted security. And we didn’t want to have to worry about sudden economic changes. We were so impressed with the structured settlement that as a condition of settling our lawsuit, we demanded and received not one, but three structured settlements – one for each member who was hurt.

“In 1992, I was in an auto accident that wasn’t my fault. The accident caused back and neck injuries that forced me to give up my nursing job. Three years later, when my case settled, I was married and expecting a child. I was tempted to take cash, particularly given our childcare expenses. Instead, I put almost all the money into a structured settlement that will begin payments when I retire.

“After my husband died in an accident, I spent a long time researching how to protect my family’s financial future, particularly when I’d need it most — my children’s college years. I chose a structured settlement because I could set up payments to pay those extra bills during their college years. That plan has worked beautifully.
