PPO - Periodical Payment Reports
“The Court shall have regard to CPR rule 41.7 and include – the nature of any financial advice received by the Claimant when considering the form of award”
A PPO is an alternative to the lump sum only settlement method, whereby part of the award is provided in regular payments as opposed to a traditional lump sum. PFE can provide you with a ‘full report’ or a less detailed ‘assessment of settlement report’
Trust For Minors (TFM) Report
A Trust for Minors Report involves the creation of a Trust for Minors report and a trust held in the name of the minor, providing a better interest rate and enabling the money to be moved out of court. Without a TFM the money would need to be held in the Court of Protection or Court Fund Office which has poor interest and investment opportunities. A TFM has the potential to allow the claimant to access a higher return on their money.
