Publisher Law Journal Press is currently distributing hardcopy supplements for Release 53 of "Structured Settlements and Periodic Payment Judgments" (S2P2J). Online S2P2J, which includes a searchable index, download capability and one-click access to cases and statutes, has already been updated to include Release 53 materials.
First published in 1986, S2P2J is co-authored and updated semi-annually by Daniel W. Hindert, Joseph J. Dehner and Patrick J. Hindert. Both the National Structured Settlement Trade Association (NSSTA) and the Society of Settlement Planners (SSP) utilize S2P2J as an educational resource for their certification programs.
Release 53 Highlights
Release 53 continues S2P2J's comprehensive reporting of the Executive Life insolvencies with updates for both Executive Life of California (ELIC) and Executive Life of New York (ELNY). The ongoing ELNY liquidation threatens severe court-approved reductions for more than 1400 structured settlement recipients across the United States.
Certain prospective ELNY shortfall
payees are appealing the ELNY liquidation and restructuring order. Their
attorneys are appealing a related contempt order. The outcome of this
courtroom drama will significantly impact not only the ELNY shortfall
payees but also the structured settlement industry and state life
insurance guarantee associations.
Other Release 53 topics:
- American Taxpayer Act of 2012 - updating when and how personal injury damage awards are taxed to a decedent's estate.
- Non-qualified assignments - expanded analysis of this growing market.
- 2013 HIPAA omnibus final rule - how it impacts settlement planners and structured settlement professionals.
- The Smart Act - which sets new procedures for Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) repayment and reporting.
As the structured settlement and settlement planning markets continue to experience unprecedented changes, S2P2J provides a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge resource for industry experts and stakeholders.
