Anti-assignment or anti-sale language does not prevent you from selling your payments.
Some settlement agreement or annuity policies contain anti-sale or anti-assignment wording such as:
“none of the periodic payments may be accelerated, deferred, increased or decreased and may not be anticipated, sold, assigned or encumbered.”
Since you must get a court order approving the sale of your payments, a judge will review and evaluate your case.
Judges have the power to approve the sale, even if there is language in your settlement agreement or structured settlement annuity policy that attempts to prevent you from selling your payments.
