Are structured settlements widely available through most financial planners?

Many companies in the West are structured settlement annuity providers. This means that these companies basically provide insurance annuity to its clients and assure them of good returns on their insurance. The people who have been injured in an accident or are seeing worker’s compensation for a mishap or even due to medical negligence and malpractice, get entitled to a large amount of money as compensation after they file a lawsuit against the defendant party. These companies then take up their role as annuity providers to the claimant party by providing them with annuities that pay them their structured settlement amount in installments. The National Structured Settlements Trade Association, NASSTA, offers a complete list of the members of this association who are structured settlement annuity providers. Some of them are John Hancock, Midland States Bank, Atlas Settlements, and Millennium Settlements to name a few.
