In discussing the role of the structured settlement broker, Ringler Associates states "Obviously, the structured settlement broker with access to the most life companies will be in a position to offer a very competitive annuity price". To underscore this point Ringler Associates posts 6 companies on its website that no longer write structured settlements.
The six companies that Ringler Associates says write structured settlement that don't are:
4 Genworth companies
American Mayflower Life Insurance Company of New York
First Colony Life Insurance Company
GE Capital Assurance Company
GE Capital Life Insurance Company of New York
2 Other companies
Hartford Life Insurance Company
Travelers Life Insurance Company
Consumers who are calling Ringler Associates on the basis of Ringler's misrepresentation may wish to consider calling Ringler's competitors.
For your information
Travelers Life was acquired by Met Life in 2005
Genworth exited from the structured settlement business in September 2006
Hartford just exited the structured settlement business
No word on why Massachusetts Mutual and Aviva were not included to puff up the numbers.
January 9, 2010 update: all 6 companies still appear on the Ringler associates website presented as if they provide structured settlement products (in the present).
