Reigniting the IRS Dialogue

NSSTA didn’t stop there. We re-engaged with the IRS, providing crucial information about the structured settlements industry and reigniting a crucial dialogue. It’s like renewing an old friendship – both challenging and rewarding but important.

Advocacy and Partnerships: Stronger Together

NSSTA has been a networking ninja, strengthening ties with influential organizations like the National Consumers League and the American Association of People with Disabilities. These partnerships are not just about shaking hands; they're about making real changes and having a voice on Capitol Hill.

Judicial Education and Legislative Efforts

Did you know there’s a judicial education gap in our industry? NSSTA has been working tirelessly to bridge this gap. Plus, our influence in anti-factoring legislation in South Carolina is a huge win for us all.

Commitment to Diversity and the Next Generation
