Is it better to settle an account in collections or pay it in full via monthly payments?

Personally speaking, it is better to settle with a collection agency rather than making monthly payments. Theres only one must pay the collection agency in full. Example, lets say you owe $1000 to a credit card company. A collection agency will say, pay $600 NOW and this will settle the balance. So, if you dont have $600, its a 'catch-22'. You are better off making the monthly payments until the $1000 is paid.

If you have a written agreement from the collection agency specifying the terms of your repayment plan and you have fulfilled (and are fulfilling) those terms as specified in the agreement, they probably cannot.

The laws of your state will prevail.
