Case Study 1: Employment Litigation Wrongful Termination

 

Situation

Sarah, a former employee of ABC Power Cooling, Inc., was wrongfully terminated after she reported unethical activity involving her senior colleagues. Sarah and her legal team file a complaint against ABC Power Cooling, Inc.

Settlement

As part of the wrongful termination settlement, Sarah will be awarded a large sum of money.

Solution

After consulting with her White House Financial & Settlement Consulting and tax advisor, Sarah and ABC Power Cooling, Inc. agree to settle for periodic payments. This helps Sarah manage her transition and spread her tax liability over the duration of her annuity.

Why Non-Qualified Annuity (NQA)?

Outsource liability management with a trusted carrier: By utilizing our NQA, ABC Power Cooling, Inc. may be able to avoid a trial and its associated costs while transferring the periodic payment obligation to a company with strong financial quality ratings.

Manage cash flows and tax impact for claimant: If managed properly, a sizeable settlement is incredibly helpful as a claimant transitions. With an NQA annuity, Sarah can rely on her guaranteed(1) settlement income while deferring the tax(2) impact.

COVID will not stop us providing unique settlement solutions using structured settlement annuities!

I hope that you are doing well! We just FINALLY completed the settlement of a case for a minor (age 17) that we were initially engaged by our plaintiff attorney client in February 2021, to provide structured settlement annuity quotes! Although the claimant was very close to the age of majority the key to the case was not giving him all of the settlement proceeds, which was over $120,000, at age 18. Having been in this business for over 20 years I cannot tell you the number of sad cases we have witnessed where the young claimant receives their settlement proceeds at age 18 only to blow through all the funds before anyone can blink and make bad decisions with the proceeds! This case involved two liability insurance carriers Liberty Mutual and Member Select. We coordinated multiple rounds of document revisions and had to have a separate set of different documents for each insurance carrier. In addition, one of the carriers would not fund the annuity until we had a fully executed court ord

Using a structured settlement annuity pre-suit

 We recently were engaged by the Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) in the case of an 11 year old boy who was struck by a care while riding his bike.  The father of the boy settled the case directly with the liability auto insurance carrier pre-suit and the GAL contacted us to ensure that the boy's settlement funds were handled appropriately. The case settled for a total of $65,000 and $59,000 was being allocated to the structured settlement annuity for the boy as follows: $5,000 paid immediately upon settlement $10,000 at age 18 $20,000 at age 21 $25,000 at age 25 $35,718 at age 30 this is total benefits of $95,718! The annuity was placed with a large life insurance company rated A+ by the A.M. Best rating agency and provided the family and GAL with the peace of mind that the young man would not receive the entire amount at age 18. In addition, due to the use of the structured settlement annuity, all of the interest gained during the payout period ($31,718 to be exact) is INCOME TAX FREE!  T
