As explained earlier, the discount rate you choose has to bring a moderate profit when you sell structured settlement. This is applicable even when you buy full or part of structured settlement.


Buy on a lower rate / Sell on a higher rate

Here again, you need to choose the rate, whether to sell or on a low rate or high rate. There is also a possibility of losing some money, if you do not have clear calculation clip with you. Discount rate calculations are carefully drawn keeping loss to the lowest level.
