Let's talk: VA's Flawed Structured Settlement Policy. Have you heard about structured settlements? Do you know how some of Virginia's most vulnerable are being exploited? The Washington Post did an investigative report on this issue. Click here to read the article

Let's dive deep into this issue, compare what other states are doing, and talk about what we as citizens can do to improve this policy problem. If you find more article on structured settlement payouts, please share them with our group. Also, invite your friends and neighbors to join our discussion meet-ups. As always, check out the League of Women Voters of Arlington's Facebook page.
