We've compiled both a list of firms that distribute settlement payments payments and a list of brokers you can approach if you want to sell your settlement payments for a lump sum. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement of any firm.
Which settlement company is the best overall? Which structured settlement company is the best in the secondary market? While I'm not sure there's a way to have a definitive answer, there are a number of factors that you may consider:
How long has the company been in business?
What do others say about the company? Does the company have a Better Business Bureau profile? What's it rating? Does it normally respond to problems quickly? Does it have a Yelp review?
