Website Purpose and Company Services. The content on the Website is for informational, educational and illustrative purposes only and may not be intended for consumers in every state. In addition, please review our licensing page for further details or contact us with any questions as LSNW services may not be available in all states.

Policy Website Qualification Form. LSNW’s Website Settlement Qualification Tool (“Qualification Tool”) and any and all corresponding conclusions shall be used for informational, illustrative and educational purposes only. No representation or warranty, expressed or implied, is made as to the accuracy, reliability or completeness of the results of the Qualification Tool or any assumption on which any conclusion is based. The Qualification Tool is an initial, simplified, automated proprietary analysis that is based upon the experience and industry knowledge of LSNW – it is not a contract, prediction of offers, offer to purchase a policy, or a solicitation to buy or to sell a security. Accurate age, health and policy information is required to yield the most beneficial results and it is recommended to contact LSNW to discuss and determine the applicability, if any, of such results. The Qualification Tool is not intended to replace the submission of a policy to the market and actual contingent offers received may be more or less favorable than those indicated. LSNW is not liable for any action or inaction taken by any party who is relying on the results of the Qualification Tool to determine his/its decisions. All parties accessing the Website and who receive results from the Qualification Tool assume full responsibility of its use; any loss or damage suffered as a result of reliance, in any capacity, on such results is the full responsibility of the parties accessing the Qualification Tool.

No Representation, Liability or Advice; Other Considerations. LSNW issues no representation or warranty about the suitability or completeness of the information contained on the Website and any corresponding conclusion or calculation derived thereof – all information, including the results of the Qualification Tool, is provided “as is” and may contain technical inaccuracies and/or typographical errors. You assume full responsibility for any loss or damage, including without limitation special, indirect or consequential, suffered as a result of reliance on any such information and LSNW is not liable for any action or inaction taken by you to determine your decisions. LSNW disclaims all warranties and conditions of any kind regarding such information, including all implied warranties and conditions of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose – nothing on this Website creates an express or implied contract. No case study, analysis, valuation or recommendation related to any life insurance policy can replace the actual submission of such policy to the market. LSNW issues no representation or warranty as to whether a particular policy or structured settlement will generate any contingent settlement offers or ultimately be sold. In addition, LSNW does not purchase policies, is under no obligation to ultimately find a buyer of the owner’s policy or structured settlement and is not responsible for any breach committed by a buyer if one is identified. Furthermore, LSNW does not provide any advice regarding whether or not to proceed with the life, viatical, or structured settlement transaction – the owner shall reach his/its own decision and is free to accept or decline any contingent offer. Once the viatical, life, or structured settlement transaction is completed and the applicable rescission period has ended, the owner, insured and any beneficiaries previously designated by the owner have no right to the death benefit of the applicable life insurance policy or policies that have been sold, unless stated otherwise in the viatical or life settlement contract.  LSNW is not providing any financial, legal, tax, investment, securities or accounting advice whatsoever and such advice should be obtained from the appropriate parties to determine, in part, any impact to estate plans, tax returns, government benefits and entitlements, availability and cost of other or replacement insurance and whether selling the existing life insurance policy or structured settlement is more beneficial than other potentially available options.

Additional Limitations. The policy owner, and not LSNW , is fully responsible for the timely payment of any and all premiums due for the policy that is the subject of the viatical or life settlement transaction, on the applicable due dates, up until change of ownership of the policy occurs. The policy owner, not LSNW, assumes sole responsibility if the policy lapses for such lack of timely payment of any and all premiums. In addition, LSNW is not a life expectancy provider or firm that produces life expectancy reports; does not determine life expectancies; is not a medical or mortality expert; does not provide mortality or medical reviews; does not evaluate the health of the insured; is not responsible for the conclusions of life expectancy providers and/or firms that produce life expectancy reports; and does not have the expertise to dispute the conclusions of life expectancy providers and/or firms that produce life expectancy reports. The insured may live longer or shorter than any life expectancy projection or estimate.

Success Stories and Missed Opportunities (Stories). Stories are based on the internal files of actual viatical and/or life, and/or structured settlement transactions and client interactions conducted by LSNW, Tradewinds Settlements, or other affiliated settlement brokers. All transaction data, dollar amounts and health conditions are accurate to the best of our knowledge. The specific characteristics of each case, including but not limited to the names and images of our clients, have been changed to protect their privacy. Stories are not contracts, predictions of offers, offers to purchase a policy or solicitations to buy or sell a security. Please be advised that past performance is not indicative of future results as each case is different. Actual viatical/life settlement market bidding results may be more or less favorable than those indicated and nothing is intended to replace the actual submission of a policy to the market. Market conditions and offers vary and you are advised to seek the services of an experienced life settlement brokers like LSNW and the International Life and Structured Settlement Exchange (ILSSE) to ensure that fair market values are obtained

Rights Reserved. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by LSNW. In addition, LSNW reserves the right to change the terms of service at any time and from time to time by revising these terms and conditions. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms.
