Structured settlement

Shawn Filchner, 178 Avenue A, Palmerton, and Stone Street Capital, LLC, Bethesda, Md., have filed a structured settlement petition seeking court approval of an early distribution owed Filchner as a result of an injury claim.

The petition states Filchner is entitled to receive monthly payments of $677 through Nov. 7, 2016, and $2,450 payable monthly beginning June 7, 2025, and continuing for life. The obligation was funded through the issuance of an annuity by the Genworth Life Insurance Company, Lynchburg, Va. Stone Street Capital is a company in the business of purchasing future periodic payments.

The petition asks the court to transfer the 46 payments of $677 to an aggregate amount of $31,142. Less a federal discount rate and legal fees, costs and expenses associated with the processing of payment, the parties are asking the court to approve a payment of $21,500 to Filchner, which, the complaint says, he plans to utilize to make improvements to his home.

As the payee, Filchner shall retain all right and interest in the remaining payments not assigned.Mortgageforeclosures
