Access Funding, a Chevy Chase MD company that purchases structured settlement payment rights, has been circulating information about its "NSSTA Financial Solutions Program" that falsely implies that it has a "dedicated internal NSSTA staff to insure the highest level of customer service".
I have confirmed with the NSSTA president that Access Funding DOES NOT have the imprimatur of NSSTA and Access Funding DOES NOT have the permission of NSSTA to use its name and goodwill hock its services to anyone.
A public response from the National Structured Settlements Trade Association expressly states "Please be aware that this company is NOT a NSSTA member, and any products they are offering are not recognized or authorized by the NSSTA.
NSSTA attorneys are looking at the matter according to our sources.
What level do factoring companies have to stoop to before there is regulation of the structured settlement secondary market?
Since 1985, the National Structured Settlements Trade Association has been the structured settlement industry trade association. Today, 800+ individual NSSTA members, from throughout the industry, including me, benefit from association activities, including:
- Continuous updates and legal analyses of federal and state court decisions, laws and regulations
- Monitoring of Congressional and state legislative activity that impacts the structured settlement industry
- Hosting professional certification and continuing education meetings throughout the year, including the Master Structured Settlement Consultant (MSSC) certification which I am taking next month.
- Maintaining the only Internet site solely devoted to promoting the benefits of structures.
