How You Can Purchase Structured Settlements
Article by Jeffery Fields
If you do not own a business that purchases structured settlements then you might find that it is hard to be able to purchase structured settlements. However this is something that is completely possible for anyone to do. Obviously the industry is controlled by the leaders who have been doing this type of thing for years.
One of the best ways to be able to get serious and start making money with this process is through having a valid and informative website. Being online is only going to increase your visibility. Remember that you have to have a lot of disposable cash at your fingertips to get you started in this line of work. This is because you have to be able to pay the person cash for the settlement that you are purchasing from them. So if you do not have cash then you would not easily be able to purchase structured settlements.
There are many different laws that you must first familiarize yourself with if you want to be successful with purchasing any type of settlement. There are also some regulations that you also must be aware of. These have all been placed to make sure that people are protected when they have these settlements and that they can not be ripped off.
The problem basically came when people who decided to purchase structured settlements did not do so in a manner that was best for the person selling their settlement. This has meant that people have been ripped off and ended up not getting as much money as they should have for their settlements that they sold. If you want to get people allow you to purchase their settlements then you have to be able to make sure that you follow all of these to be able to be genuine.
Make sure that you have all of the information and that you can easily and clearly communicate that with people when you are talking to them. It is hard for people to consider selling their structured settlements. People will be looking for guidance and will want to see answers to their questions that seem honest and reputable. You must make sure that they can easily see your address (where you are physically located), your email address, and a telephone number (preferably one that is toll free) where they can call you.
Another thing that can be handy is a calculator tool on the website that offers the person considering selling a chance to figure out how much money you would pay them as a lump sum. One of the best ways to break through in this industry is to be the easiest. Have things clearly laid out and easy to figure out and you will increase the amount of people that choose your services.
There are many things that you should do when you want to purchase structured settlements but the most important include that you understand the laws and are ready to get started. Also making sure that you present yourself in a clear way is important as well.

France, Aisne (02) Guise : Familistère : cour intérieure, pavillon gauche
« Ne pouvant faire un palais de la chaumière ou du galetas de chaque famille ouvrière, nous avons voulu mettre la demeure de l’ouvrier dans un palais ; le Familistère, en effet, n’est pas autre chose, c’est le palais du travail, c’est le PALAIS SOCIAL de l’avenir.
Ce qu’il n’est pas possible de faire au profit de familles éparpillées et sans lien, les améliorations qu’on ne peut introduire dans le tohu-bohu des habitations ouvrières, ni à la ville, ni à la campagne, ni dans les caves, ni dans les mansardes habitées ; ce que ne permettent pas même les habitations ouvrières isolées les mieux construites, quel qu’en soit le système : le Familistère le permet, le palais social le rend possible, bien plus, il le rend nécessaire. »
Jean-Baptiste-André Godin La Richesse au service du peuple, le Familistère de Guise. 1875.

JEAN-BAPTISTE GODIN ( ENGLISH )
Jean-Baptiste André Godin (26 January 1817 -29 January 1888) was a French industrialist and social experimentor born on the 26th of January 1817 at Esquéhéries (Aisne).
The son of an artisan, he entered an iron-works at an early age, and at seventeen made a tour of France as journeyman. Returning to Esquéhéries in 1837, he started a small factory for the manufacture of castings for heating-stoves. The business increased rapidly, and for the purpose of railway facilities was transferred to Guise in 1846. At the time of Godin’s death in 1888 the annual output was over four millions of francs (4,160,000), and in 1908 the employees numbered over 2000 and the output was over 280,000.
An ardent disciple of Charles Fourier, he advanced a considerable sum of money towards the disastrous Fourierist experiment of V. P. Considerant (q.v.) in Texas (known as La Reunion. He profited, however, by its failure, and in 1859 started the Familistère, or community settlement, of Guise on more carefully laid plans.
The Familistère forms a town within the town of Guise. It comprises, in addition to a large factory, three large buildings, each four stories high, capable of housing all the work-people, each family having two or three rooms. The main building consists of three rectangular blocks joined at the corners. Each of these blocks has a central court covered with a glass roof under which children can play in all weather. There is no church of any sort. (There are, of course, churches within the rest of Guise). At the back of the main block there was a nursery. There is a separate block, known as the "economat", containing various shops, refreshment rooms and recreation rooms of various kinds(?), stores for the purchase of groceries, drapery and every necessity. This has recently (2008) been restored and is now a cafe, a shop selling books, postcards etc and an exhibition area. There were also allotments for the workers.
Opposite the main block there was a building containing a theater for concerts and dramatic entertainments and a primary school. There was also a communal laundry and swimming pool. This was a few years ago derelict but has now been restored. The swimming pool is still a swimming poll but the laundry is a meeting room and the drying room is now (2008) an exhibition room. In 1880 the whole was turned into a co-operative society, with provision by which it eventually became the property of the workers.
Godin manufactured cookers and heating stoves of many kinds mainly made from cast iron castings. Sometimes these were enameled. These are still to be found in use all over France. They can be found for sale on eBay.
This business was still owned by the workers in the 1950s but soon after was taken over by Le Creuset. It is not obvious that the factory is still functioning. It is seems the domestic building were privatised. The state of the domestic buildings was deteriorating but has recently been awarded EU money for it to be restored.
In 1871 Godin was elected deputy for Aisne, but retired in 1876 to devote himself to the management of the Familistère. In 1882 he was created a Knight of the Legion of Honor.
Godin was the author of Solutions sociales (1871); Les Socialistes et les Droits du travail (1874); Mutualité sociale et association du capital et du travail (1880); La Republique du travail et la reforme parlementaire (1889).
