Is a lump sum disability claim settlement taxable?
Like structured settlements, lump sum settlements received as a result of a judgment in the case of injury or disability are not taxable, either. And, if the recipient of the award is relatively young, a structured settlement may be the worst option available, because it does not account for inflation or future changes in lifestyle. The advice of a qualified financial advisor or Certified Financial Planner should be sought before determining if a structured settlement is even a viable option. The reason most insurance companies will push for a structured settlement is because the insurance company wins by doing so. If a dollar today is worth more than a dollar a year from now due to inflation, of course the insurance company would prefer to pay you a flat rate per month for the rest of your life, rather than give you a large lump sum in cash. Believe me, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Measure twice. Cut once.

A long time . 8 months to a year, possibly longer. You need a lawyer if you want it quicker.
Your lump sum settlement is determined by factors such as yourmonthly salary, amount of disability, length of time unemployed,and medical costs.
It all depends on how badly you are injured. There are actually many factors. My friend is an auto mechanic and a chisel that was being hammered on broke and a sliver shot acr…oss the garage and went thru all 12 layers of his eye. There is no surgery available to fix his blindness in one eye. Workers comp only gave him 90,000. You do not get a lot of money for your injuries. It is not like suing for medical malpractice or for an auto accident. The money they pay is quite less. I would imagine around 40,000 would be your answer and that's only if you have the right lawyer. Get a lawyer!
If you received a discharge, then no. If you did not, or if a debt was excepted from discharge, then probably yes.
No, I believe Bankruptcy goes off your record in 7 years. Check the law in your state.
No but if it has earned any interest between the time of death and the payout date, that is taxable. Best to consult a tax attorney.
Sure. It is currently an asset...you just don't have the cash yet. Added: Check into this with the bankruptcy judge or ask the Clerk of The Court's office. There are SOME str…eams of income that are judgment free in a bankruptcy. You will have to check further to see if your particular one qualifies.
It depends on how you paid the premiums. If you paid with after tax dollars, your benefit is completely tax free. If you used pre-tax dollars you would owe Federal Income ta…xes, but not NJ Income taxes - NJ does not recognize pre-taxing. If your employer paid a portion of your private insurance premium, you would owe both Federal and State taxes.
I don't think you can win.I have not won anything from pch.
Yes alimony is taxable to the receiving party and deductible to the paying party.
Taxation of disability benefits from a private disability insurance policy are based on whether the premiums are being expensed or not. Assuming that the premiums are not expe…nsed and you are paying with after-tax dollars, your benefits will not be taxable.
