Don’t let clients settle for inefficiency

Don’t let clients settle for inefficiency

The first advisor your client is going to call after they’ve been in a personal injury accident is likely their lawyer – not you. Don’t be offended. However, it’s important that you let them know you have the power to help make a big difference in the outcome of their case. 

The average person’s knowledge of structured settlements likely comes from horrible weekday afternoon TV commercials. That’s because most people don’t want to think about being involved in a personal injury, wrongful death, workers’ compensation or other claims case. However, it’s important to understand that these annuitized options can make a significant difference for your clients – whether they’re claimants or defendants.

In addition to the guaranteed payment stream a structured settlement provides, there are several advantages: 

  • For the claimant, payments are exempt from federal and state income taxes
  • For the defendant, the arrangement transfers full responsibility of future payments to an independent third party
  • Structured settlements improve case resolution times – potentially reducing overhead costs and outside legal fees

Don’t worry if you’re not a lawyer or structured settlement expert. Ash Brokerage has a team that can help your clients benefit from this efficient option for their claims case. Call us at 1-800-589-3000.
