What If You Have Lost or Misplaced Your Structured Settlement Documents?
IMPORTANT NOTICES:
1. If you have sold a portion of your structured settlement payment rights to a settlement purchaser (a/k/a "cash now pusher") it is possible that the unsold part of your future structured settlement payments are being "serviced" NOT by the annuity issuing life insurance company, but by either (1) the settlement purchaser, (2) a servicing subsidiary of the settlement purchaser or (3) another company, bank of or other financial institution that provides servicing on such transactions.

Structured settlement servicing is necessary primarily because some structured annuity issuing life insurance companies choose not to split annuity payments so the annuitant must transfer ALL of their structured settlement payment rights (i.e. even the unsold portion) to a factoring company or servicing entity.

When structured settlement payments are subject to a servicing agreement following a sale of structured settlement payments for "cash now", you must contact the entity that is servicing your annuity payments, not the annuity issuer. If you have sold multiple times to different companies you may have more than one servicing company.

Investors who have acquired structured settlement payment rights in the structured settlement secondary market should be mindful to determine at the time of purchase, whether they have acquired serviced structured settlement payments and be guided accordingly.

2.  If you have a structured settlement that was issued by Allstate Life Insurance Company or Allstate Life Insurance Company of New York and you have a structured settlement that includes a period certain followed by life time payments  (e.g. 30 years certain and life), this is a reminder that Allstate had a peculiar way of issuing contracts. While other companies issue a single contract, Allstate actually issued two policies, an A policy and a B policy with the same contract number. One of these contracts was for guaranteed lump sums or certain payments and the other for lifetime payments. Occasionally there has not been a seamless transition. In 2015 during the course of assisting an Allstate annuitant who found us on the Internet, we learned that Allstate has outsourced its customer service to a call center in the Philippines. Unfortunately, in our opinion, because the Allstate call center employees were not servicing the accounts prior to 2013 and thus are not familiar with the history of Allstate structured settlements, it led to the Allstate call center employees disseminating inaccurate information. Fortunately we were able to correct for the insured quickly, by making multiple calls to the Allstate home office until we found someone who knew the history. Make sure you keep a copy of your contract and settlement paperwork in a safe, secure, fireproof and waterproof place.
