Hi folks, J.G. Wentworth here. As part of our occasional series of blog posts, today we would like to introduce you to one of our amazing customers, Kathryn Briana, aka ‘Bre’. Bre used the money from the sale of her future structured settlement payments to buy her family a home, and we are honored that she has given J.G. Wentworth permission to share her very personal story with you.
Bre’s story began with a terrible tragedy: the death of her father when she was just 2 1/2 years old. “The accident happened on a construction site,” Bre told us, “He did caulking. Electricity was supposed to be off, and he was caulking between the wall and the ceiling with an aluminum ladder and he had an industrial-strength shot of electricity go through him.” Because of this horrible accident, Bre was given two structured settlements. One pays her $500 a month, the other is scheduled to pay her larger lump sums every few years until 2055.
While receiving that money definitely came in handy over the years, circumstances recently changed for Bre, and she began considering how to get cash now in exchange for these future payments. One of the companies she reached out to was J.G. Wentworth – and she was immediately pleased with her interactions with one of our account executives, Jenna Scarpino. “She knows what she’s doing,” Bre told us, expressing her appreciation for Miss Scarpino. “She did not have to ask the boss every time I asked a question or we had to make a decision. And she went above and beyond the call of duty to make me feel comfortable…”
Ultimately, Bre decided to sell just a portion of her payments, choosing to leave her monthly $500 payments alone so that money could keep coming regularly to support her family day-to-day. Immediately she was pleased with her decision. As she told us, “Yesterday was his [her father’s] birthday and that’s when we got approved for our money. I asked for a sign that I was doing the right thing, and when we got approved, I knew I got the sign I was looking for.”
As for the home she purchased? “It’s a brick home on two and a half acres,” she told us excitedly. “Away from roads, a little bit more secluded… I love woods, and we are a hunting family… and my son rides motorbikes, and he would have two and a half acres, so we think it could be better that way.”
We are so thrilled Bre can provide this amazing home for her family – and grateful that she turned to J.G. Wentworth to help her get the cash she needed to make the purchase!
