The purpose of this is to protect the settlement recipient so they are not taken advantage of or to try and keep them from cashing out there settlement for frivolous reasons. So on the surface the answer is that some requests to get a lump sum payment are indeed declined.

Reasons Some Requests Are Declined: There are many reasons that a request to transfer a structured settlement would be denied. But the reason given most often is when the judge feels the transaction is not in the annuity holder’s best interest. The court has to see clear reason why a transfer will help the payee along with a tangible financial need. If this criteria is not met then the request will be declined.

There are other cases where a settlement can be declined and that is when the payout is considered by the judge to be less then fair. If an annuity recipient goes to court requesting a lump sum payout and the amount being offered is well below what a judge would deem to be fair then he/she may reject the request.
