Structured Settlements


Product Benefits

Structured settlements have a unique status under the law, so the income is paid completely tax-free. Benefits are guaranteed by Amica Life's parent company, Amica Mutual Insurance Company, for maximum safety and security. Our experienced employees provide you with product expertise and friendly, efficient help throughout the settlement process.

When compared to other settlement plans, the Amica structured settlement provides great value to the injury victim. In addition, our structured settlement plan:

  • Helps maximize settlement dollars
  • Matches future needs (financial and/or medical) with a specifically designed stream of income
  • Eliminates investment risk
  • Provides a competitive rate of return
  • Contains no added costs or investment fund management fees
  • Can provide lifetime benefits with rights of survivorship
  • Means each annuitant becomes an Amica customer and is entitled to individualized attention as part of our award-winning customer service
  • Provides non-Amica customers with a no-cost, qualified assignment from Amica Mutual for maximum financial security
