5 Things You Should Know About Settlement Funding Companies

Settlement Funding Companies

If you’ve decided to sell your structured settlement, annuity or lottery winnings, but are having a hard time deciding which company will provide the best return for your dollar, consider these five facts about competitive settlement funding companies and how SellYourStructuredSettlement.com differs.

1) Over-Promise and Under-Deliver

The old adage ‘if it’s too good to be true, it probably is’ has never been truer than within the settlement funding industry. Companies desperate for your business are willing to tell you whatever you need to hear in order to sell – despite whether or not they can deliver.

At SellYourStructuredSettlement.com, we set realistic expectations and provide you with an upfront quote so that you have all the information you need to make the decision that’s best for you. If selling your structured settlement, annuity or lottery winnings is in your best interest, we’ll see to it that you receive the maximum payout possible – and we always deliver on our promises.

2) High-Pressure Selling

A frequent complaint customers make of settlement funding companies is the persistent harassment of people who call in looking for information. Many companies hire customer service representatives for one purpose – to sell. Arming potential customers with the information they need to make an informed decision is not a priority.

We are different. We’re happy to provide curious people with the factual information they need to make the decision that’s best for them. You will never be subjected to high-pressure selling techniques or encouraged to pursue an option that isn’t in your best interest.

Structured Settlement Funding - 5 things to Know3) Lackluster Customer Service

Poor customer service is a problem in many industries, but it’s particularly troublesome in settlement funding. While a poor customer experience can ruin your day, not receiving your payment on time – or receiving less than you were expecting – can potentially ruin your life. Many customers find that when they call their settlement funding companies with legitimate concerns over the status or amount of their payout, customer service representatives provide little help or guidance, instead shifting the blame to the customers themselves, leaving many with no recourse.

At SellYourStructuredSettlement.com, providing the best possible experience for our customers is paramount. Whether you’re just starting out and looking for information or have already received your payout, we’re here to help and will be with you every step of the way.

4) Focus on Quantity, Not Quality

Most settlement funding companies operate their business with the objective of generating volume. Much like an assembly line, customers are pushed through and processed to transact the most deals possible, with little consideration put into what happens to those customers once the deal is done. This is why many customers are constantly badgered until they sign on the dotted line, then left out in the cold.

We believe in a different way of doing business. Instead of focusing on the quantity of customers, our focus is on the quality of our customer experience. We only encourage customers to sell their structured settlements, annuities or lottery winnings if it is in their best interest. For those who do sell, we make sure the experience is as easy as possible, keeping open lines of communication throughout the entire process.

5) Invest Heavily in Advertising

Advertising creates familiarity, but familiarity with a settlement funding company doesn’t necessarily mean you can trust them. In fact, many companies invest heavily in advertising because, due to the issues mentioned above, it would be close to impossible to generate new business any other way. Advertising is also a huge expense. Companies that invest heavily in advertising have less money to offer their customers for payouts, despite what their ads might tell you. Don’t be fooled into thinking that because you’re familiar with a company that it’s your best choice – it simply means they’ve chosen to spend their money on advertising, not their customers.

We invest in our customers, not advertising. Instead of relying on slick TV ads or catchy radio jingles, we rely on our reputation and let our customers advertise for us. This customer-first approach allows us to deliver on our promise of providing you with the most money you’re entitled to.

The Bottom Line

The decision to sell your structured settlement, annuity payments or lottery winnings is a big one, and can have serious repercussions on the rest of your life – either for better or for worse. Don’t make the decision blindly; ensure you have all the information you need and complete confidence in the settlement funding company you are dealing with. If promises sound too good to be true, they most likely are.

At SellYourStructuredSettlement.com, you’ll be treated like a person, not a transaction. We have a long history of helping people just like you. Each and every one of our customer service representatives has the knowledge to help you make an informed decision that can transform your life for the better.
