Everything You Wanted to Know about Structured Settlements, but Were Afraid to Ask – Part 1

Over J.G. Wentworth’s 21 plus year history, our company has answered literally tens of thousands of questions from structured settlement recipients considering selling their future payments for money they would get sooner. Our employees take enormous pride in answering customers’ questions as patiently, thoroughly, and clearly as they can; they genuinely believe that there is no question a customer might have that they should not feel completely comfortable asking us.

With that in mind, here are some of the more common questions we hear from our customers – including some rather brash ones we are always more than happy to answer, beginning with:

I’ve already called other companies looking to sell my structured settlement payments; why should I choose J.G. Wentworth?

There are many reasons to work with J.G. Wentworth – one of the largest structured settlement purchasers in the country. We have over 21 years of experience and have processed over $4 billion in future payments. We also have hundreds of employees trained in making the process of getting cash for structured settlement payments as fast and painless as it can possibly be. Finally, our Better Business Bureau rating of A+ symbolizes our commitment to our customers and why we are among the nationwide leaders in these types of transactions.

I’ve received a good cash offer for my settlement payments. Can J.G. Wentworth beat it?

That’s a great question!  We’d love to try.  J.G. Wentworth offers quotes that are as competitive as anyone’s in the industry, and as we mentioned, we also have a track record of experience and excellence few companies can match.  So tell us you’re quote, and let’s see what we can do!

How long does it take to get a quote from J.G. Wentworth?

With the right documentation surrounding your original structure settlement agreement we can offer you a quote in just minutes.

If I want cash now for my structured settlement payments, do I have to sell my entire structured settlement payment stream?

Another good question – and thankfully the answer is no. J.G. Wentworth can arrange a partial buyout that will allow you to sell just a portion of your settlement payments, giving you both cash now and some of your future settlement payments down the road.

How long does it take to get a lump sum of cash from J.G. Wentworth for my settlement payments?

The process varies by state and individual circumstances, but it generally takes from 60 to 90 days to get this money out of structured settlement and into your pocket.
