What is a pension?
Pensions are income streams from a structured cash flow, in most cases from a retirement account or other pre calculated arrangements. Pensioners can receive their income in form of monthly, biweekly or weekly payments from a pre-set pension pot or for the rest of their lives. There are many types of pensions with payments ranging from just a few dollars to thousands of dollars.
Pensions can come from many sources but most commonly known pensions are:
City, State and civil service
CalPERS (California Public Employees' Retirement System)
OPM (office of personal management)
How do you sell your pension payments:
Almost all pensions qualify for the pension buyout program. Pensioners can sell a portion of their monthly or weekly payments for a set number of years and receive a lump sum payment in return. The company that is facilitating the pension buyout must take many things in to consideration like money loss of value. The fact that 1 dollar today has more value than that same dollar in 10 years is calculated in the lump sum payout process.
The company must also calculate a profit for the investors who will ultimately be buying the pension. Companies like Bradling are experts in pension purchases and this expertise come from many years of experience. When you sell your pension through Bradling, you are guaranteed the most beneficial lump sum buyout purchase. Bradling will help you sell your pension payments by assisting you throughout the whole process.

The question many may ask is "how much will I get from selling my pension?". There is no set amount. There are hundreds of options available when it come down to selling your pension depending on the amount of payments and the terms. To qualify, you must be receiving at least $400 per month. You can sell anywhere from $400 per month up to 70% of your net monthly payments. Terms vary from 3 to 10 years. Here is a very small example of current rates that a pensioner can qualify for. Please note that these numbers are subject to change at any time.
$400 sold for 5 years can payout $10,982.22
$1000 sold for 4 years can payout $24,786.71
$2000 sold for 3 years can payout $40,465.18
$1000 sold for 5 years can payout $28,355.56
$1000 sold for 6 years can payout $34,378.48
$1000 sold for 7 years can payout $37,688.97
$1000 sold for 8 years can payout $40,409.04
As you can see, shorter options are much more beneficial and that is because of the money loss of value over time. 1 dollar is worth more in 4 years than it is in 6, 8 or 10 years.
Every payment can be plugged in to any term with certain limitations:
$400 up to $900 will start off at 5 years and can go up to 10 years. $1000 can start off at 4 years and can go up to 10 years. $2000 and up can start off at 3 years and can go up to 10 years. Considering the examples, you can imagine just how many options can be available in your specific case.
Please note that this is not a loan and you are not selling your entire pension. credit score based program and just not having perfect credit will not disqualify you. In many if not most cases, when you sell you pension through Bradling, we can pay off many or all of your outstanding accounts through our escrow prior to paying out the lump sum.
