Other commentators have waxed toxic of their disdain for casualty company approved lists. So, having been given the appropriate "stimulus" I've decided to weight in.
One wonders what "dinosaur" of the structured settlement industry is advising a P&C company to remain nameless which today proffered, through its legal representative, to one of our readers, an approved list of "structured settlement annuity companies" that includes (among others):
American National Co.
Canada Life Assurance Co,
Canada Life Insurance Co. of America
Hartford Life and Annuity Ins. Co.
Massachusetts Mutual Life insurance (*)
MetLife and Annuity Co. of CT
Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company
Monumental Life Insurance Group
Pacific Life Insurance Company
Prudential Retirement Insurance & Annuity Co. (*)
Sun Life Assurance Co. of Canada
Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada US
Transamerica Life Insurance Company
It is unknown to this author what the significance of the asterisk is.
Some of these companies stopped writing structured settlement annuities YEARS AGO! Other companies NEVER wrote structured settlement annuities.
If you are with the unnamed insurance company, the legal representative that produced this list, the settlement consultant doing such a stellar job of keeping your client informed and you recognize this, DUDE, YOU NEED HELP!
If you don't want to look like, please take a look at this CURRENT list of Who Writes Structured Settlement Annuties and update YOUR list for goodness sakes.
