Life Companies & Structured Settlements: Why They're Strong Enough to Withstand a Pandemic
In uncertain financial times, it becomes even more important to ensure that injured claimants can preserve their settlement funds. Structured settlement annuities are among the safest financial options available, due to a combination of company longevity, ratings standards, market capitalization, and regulation.
Most of the companies that issue structured settlement annuities have withstood the most dramatic financial events in United States history, including The Great Depression and the 2008 financial crisis. In fact, since 2008, no life insurance companies who issue structured settlement annuities have become insolvent.
Sage offers structured settlement annuities through life insurance companies that have consistently achieved high ratings from well-respected ratings agencies. Ratings are based on the perceived financial strength and claims-paying abilities of the insurer. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing financial instability, these life insurance companies have maintained high ratings1.
Capitalization & Regulation
Insurance companies are regulated by both state and federal agencies. These agencies require insurance companies to maintain a certain level of capitalization to decrease the risk of insolvency. Many life insurers have chosen to exceed the minimum threshold, increasing the level of safety provided to customers.
