A settlement in law terms, and as how Wikipedia would define it, is a resolution between parties who are in dispute mostly likely about a legal case, which is most often between employees and employers. A settlement agreement also prevents a battle in court having both parties or the parties involved opting for a settlement agreement rather than having to have a battle in court.

Types of Settlement Agreements
- Temporary Life and Joint Survivor Annuity – the difference between the joint survivor annuity and a temporary life is that in a joint survivor annuity, you will be still getting a structured settlement not only for the entirety of your lifetime but your beneficiary will also be getting a structured settlement even after you die as opposed to a temporary life that will end when you die.
- Lump Sum Settlement – this type of settlement agreement is what most huge companies would definitely prefer. Lump sum settlement, according to eHow, is when the receiving party of the agreement will be paid in full amount at once. The reason why big companies would rather have this kind of settlement agreement is that they can have the settlement payment written off their taxes, although taking and opting to have the lump sum settlement would require the paying party to also pay the taxes in full amount.
- Lump Sum Annuity – this type of settlement payment is a type of lump sum payment wherein the payment can defer until a certain future date at which the settlement payment has to be made. If in some cases you will be dead, the lump sum annuity settlement payment will pay your beneficiary and it will be received as a “life contingent lump sum.”
- Structured Settlements – this type of settlement agreement can be paid monthly, yearly, or every few years, according to eHow. Since this type of settlement agreement is specified and structured also, its payment mode and structure is some sort of like an installment basis. Clearly this type of settlement is not the best option if you as the receiving party would want to have the full payment at once and on an immediate basis.
