As an annuitant, it can be a long and arduous journey, especially when they are young adults experiencing a tragedy.

Finances are not all that annuitants need to move to the next step in life. Annuitants also need to be supported in their grieving process, which often takes a back seat because of everything happening in their life. They also need to be prepared for the range of emotions that come with the settlement, which can lead to mismanagement of the funds given to them if not supported.

This is the best-preferred method, but it also comes with some setbacks, especially when the person needs a large amount of money to offset medical bills or buy a house. That is where a third-party company, mostly called “factoring companies”, comes into place to help.
