Faces of Our Partners

Ted Kennedy Jr.

Connecticut State Senator

"The disability community and NSSTA have stood together and will continue to work together. Our partnership started as a means to raise awareness of disability issues and raise funds for the AAPD. But our partnership today has been strengthened by our common goal of working to improve the lives of those with disabilities. Nothing makes me prouder than our work together to represent the hopes and dreams of people with disabilities to live their lives with dignity and respect. NSSTA’s support and commitment for the American Association of People with Disabilities is greatly appreciated."

Sally Greenberg

NCL President

"All of us—structured settlement consultants, attorneys, judges, and consumer advocates and leaders in the disability rights community have a shared responsibility to help protect injured persons and people with disabilities from abusive and misleading financial practices."

Suze Orman

Personal Finance Expert

"At your greatest time of need, not only if you're the one who has suffered and you're the one who is injured, and the one to be taken care of with your family, and if you think that when you are at the most emotional low and physical low of your life and if you think you have what it takes to handle that which can literally keep you going for the rest of your lives, I'm here to tell you that YOU DO NOT. So let somebody help you. Let us help you. Let us protect you. And let us make sure that everything works financially speaking simply by doing that which would protect you, which is a structured settlement."

Warren Buffett

American Business Magnate, Investor, and Philanthropist

"Anyone settling a personal injury claim should seriously consider a structured settlement as part of their plan for financial recovery. Structured settlements can stretch settlement funds by providing tax-free payments for lost income, medical bills or other future needs, which delivers tremendous long-term security for injured people and their families. Berkshire Hathaway is proud to be a leading provider of structured settlement annuities."
