Learn About IN-FORCE™ Part 1
Posted on August 23, 2012
IN-FORCE™ fixed term annuity is our proprietary name for a transferred structured settlement in which you, the buyer, receive the rights to fixed annuity payments in exchange for a lump sum payment to an individual who is the original existing annuitant.
By purchasing an individual right to receive payments , you receive high yield returns while the existing annuitant enjoys the benefits of having cash now.
IN-FORCE™ fixed term annuities can provide above average returns for the fixed income portion of a balanced portfolio. Since they guarantee you a payments stream over a fixed period of time at a fixed rate of return, this investment is generally considered to be a good vehicle for “safe money” savings. Insurance companies invest the funds primarily in government’s securities and high grade corporate bonds which provide guaranteed interest rates.
Bulbrook/Drislane only offers IN-FORCE™ fixed term annuities from insurance companies with among the highest Standard and Poor’s credit ratings, making IN-FORCE™ fixed term annuities one of the safest forms of fixed term purchases available today.
Individuals involved in legal claims for personal injury often accept a structured settlement in which they receive regular, fixed payments over several years and/or lump sums at stipulated times from an annuity. As circumstances change, these individuals called Existing Annuitants, sometimes need to convert a portion of their guaranteed income into cash now to meet personal needs or settle an estate. They decide to assign their rights to their future annuity payments at a discount to Bulbrook/Drislane.
