4structures' John Darer maintains this as a service not only for his own clients, but as a courtesy for all consumers of structured settlements
When I first entered the structured settlement industry there were more than 20 life insurance companies offering structured settlement annuities. Some of those companies who have ceased writing structured settlement annuities, maintain service departments for the run- off business, while other companies have sold those blocks. In some cases the structured settlemnet annuity block has been sold more than once. In one case, Allstate, its New York company and its non-New York company were sold to different purchasers.
Sometimes the servicing has been outsourced offshore, with well intentioned service subcontractors in place. But the representatives in some cases are sorely lacking in the historical context, giving you the feeling that they are merely schooled in or reading from a list of talking points. This has in some cases led to consumer confusion.

The structured settlement business is seeing the best year in its history, despite fewer markets. 5 of the biggest months for structured settlement annuity production in the history of structured settlements have occurred in the last 9 months! 2023 is set for an all time record year for production.
