According to AboutHealth roughly 70% of us report worrying regularly about making ends meet – with only 10% of Americans claiming that they face no financially-related stress of any kind.
While these numbers are alarming, what is equally concerning is the long-term impact living under such financial strain can have on a person. Chronic stress can lead to depression, anxiety, and lowered feelings of self-worth; it has also been tied to an increase in the likelihood of a heart attack, an increase in blood pressure, rapid aging, infertility, and a higher risk of stroke – to name just a few potent physical and mental side effects.
As the frequently stress-inducing holiday season approaches, we thought we would reflect upon stress and its impact on the lives of our customers. Of course, short-term stress can be a good thing; after all, it can lead to increased focus, higher expectations, and heightened performance. But if financial stress becomes a constant in one’s life, and you cannot escape worrying about paying bills and other debt obligations, then it has crossed over into truly threatening territory.
Should I spend my money on x or y? Pay off a bill now or later? Try to stretch my debt one more month? – If you are living under the shadow of these sorts of questions on a constant basis, you are sure to feel the effect of these thoughts in mind and body, and make no mistake: something must be done to alleviate your condition.
The good news is that if you are currently receiving payments from a structured settlement or annuity, and/or scheduled to receive more money from such payments in the future, you have an option that others facing financial stress may not have: the choice to sell your future payments for a lump sum of cash, and use that money to pay down debts. Doing so may not only alleviate your financial situation but may also ease your mental burdens.
