Can I sell my annuity ?
Yes, you can sell your annuity payment for cash. In case your financial needs change and the annual amount does not meet your needs, you can sell your current or future payments for a lump sum cash.
The annual amount can be sold in parts or in whole. If all are sold at once, you lose all future recurring payments. However, if you sell a portion of your payments, you will receive a lump sum cash up front, and later you will be able to resume receiving regular payments.
What are Sell Annuity Payment alternatives?
It is best to discuss your options with a reputable, licensed financial advisor who is familiar with the annuity in question. Other savings, such as a 401 (k) plan, a lifetime insurance policy or a personal loan can be less expensive.
If it is in the process of making an annual deposit, the firm may allow a small, penalty-free refund. Experts also suggest talking to a tax consultant before making any decision as this will have a tax effect on the sale.
Do I have to sell all my annual money or can I sell only a portion?
Selling your annual contract in full gives you a lump sum. However, if you need immediate cash access for a down payment or unforeseen loan at home, you may choose to sell a portion of your payments.
A partial annual sale allows you to sell a portion of your payments in dollars or over a period of time.
For example, you can sell three to five years out of a 20 year old. During these years, you will not receive regular payments. At the beginning of the sixth year, regular payments will resume.
What are the benefits of my annual sales?
Your annual sales provide you with cash that can help you and your family improve your quality of life. A lump sum of cash gives you the freedom to reduce debt, deal with emergencies and even travel.

Is it legal to sell my annual payments?
Unless your annual contract is the result of a litigation, it is perfectly legal for you to sell your annual money without a judge’s approval. On the other hand, the sale of structural settlements requires court approval.
The judge’s role in these transactions is to make sure that selling your settlement payments is in your best interest and will not put you or your family at financial risk.
Once the sale is approved by the court, you and the buyer can proceed with the transaction.
