AAPD Leadership Awards Gala
On March 11, 2015, the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act at the Annual Leadership Awards Gala in Washington, DC.  Many leaders in the structured settlements industry, including Christine Logan, were in attendance for this momentous occasion.

Twenty-five years ago, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) authored the bill and was its chief sponsor in the Senate. Harkin delivered part of his bill's introduction speech in sign language, saying it was so his deaf brother could understand. It was signed into law on July 26, 1990, by President George H. W. Bush, and later amended with changes effective January 1, 2009.

The AAPD is the nation's largest disability rights organization. It promotes equal opportunity, economic power, independent living, and political participation for people with disabilities. James E. Logan & Associates, the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA) and other AAPD members, together, represent a powerful force for change.  For more information about joining the AAPD, please visit its website at

Pacific Life now offers a risk-free growth option tied to the S&P 500 for Structured Settlements

Pacific Life now offers an Index-Linked Annuity Payment Adjustment Rider.  This optional rider offers the potential for increased payment amounts for a structured settlement, while preserving the current benefit level.  By adding this optional rider to a structured settlement, changes to the payment amount have a potential to increase, but will never decrease.  When the S&P 500 Index rises over a period of 12 months (the "Index Measurement Period"), payments would also rise, subject to an annual maximum of five percent.  When the S&P 500 Index has a negative or zero return, there is no reduction to the payment amount.  To learn more about this new option, which is available for both claimant and attorney's fees, please CLICK HERE.
