Guaranteed Annuity Buyouts

When your annuity is guaranteed, we can provide you an immediate quote for a lump sum. We only need information about the size and timing of your payments (i.e., how much they are and when are they due), as well as the name of the annuity issuer that is making the payments to you.

A guaranteed annuity is a type of annuity that provides a guaranteed income stream for a set period of time. Guaranteed annuity payments are made regardless of whether the original payee is living at the time the payments become due. The annuity issuer guarantees the income payments for a fixed schedule.

Life Contingent Annuity Payment Buyouts

In order to get you a price for the sell life contingent annuity payments, we will need to gather a little more information from you than if you were selling guaranteed payments. This is because the payments are tied to your life and therefore your health and other factors come into play when determining the lump sum we can offer.

Frequently asked questions

Do I Need Court Approval to Sell My Annuity Payments?

If you purchased an annuity directly from the annuity issuer with your own funds (or inherited the annuity), you generally do not need to get court approval to exchange the right to receive the payments for a lump sum. This answer is different, however, if you are getting annuity payments as a result of a lottery winning or structured settlement. In the case of lottery payments or structured settlement payments, there is a court process that must be followed

If I Have to Go to Court to Get Approval of the Sell, What is the Process?

After certain paperwork is filed with the court in the county where you reside, a Judge will set a Hearing. Generally speaking, the Hearing focuses on whether selling a structured settlement is in your best interest. Lottery annuity sells, while requiring court approval as well, generally do not face the same level of scrutiny as the sell of structured settlement payments. The process to get the lump sum can take anywhere between 30-60 days (on average).

What Happens to My Payments Once I Sell Them?

Like any other asset, once you sell the payments to a buyer, you are no longer entitled to receive them. You want to avoid “seller’s remorse”. Accordingly, we strongly recommend you take your time to consider whether proceeding with the sell is in your best interest. We similarly believe that you should take your time to shop your payments to a variety of buyers to ensure you are comfortable with the amount any buyer offers.
