In our opinion, there is no better way to learn about the experience of working with J.G. Wentworth than to hear from our own customers. Here is another in a series of interviews with folks from around the country who worked with our company to get the money they needed out of their future structured settlement and annuity payments sooner.
Seated next to his wife, Juliet, Roger D. tells their story. “My wife was pregnant with our second child,” Roger told us, “I wasn’t too sure about my job and how long I was going to be able to hold it. And she was about to be getting out of the military, and we were going to go from living in military housing – paid rent, paid medical, paid everything – to having to find a place and having to pay everything. I was pretty stressed out about it, honestly.”
There was, however, one unique aspect to Juliet and Roger’s situation: payments the couple was guaranteed to receive at later dates. “I have an annuity,” he continued, “I had monthly payments coming in every month… [But] it wasn’t going to be enough.”
Then, like so many of J.G. Wentworth’s customers, a lightbulb moment. “A commercial came on,” Roger said, “I heard the word annuity and I went ‘Hey, that’s something… That’s like a sign!’ I spoke with one of the representatives and he was able to give me all the options that were best for my family. And it wasn’t just what was of interest for him, it was what was best for me.”
Roger was also considering a bold step in his professional career: starting his own company. “I was putting some numbers together towards opening up a business,” he said. “I knew how much I needed, and I knew how much was needed to start the business.”
He turns to his wife and smiles. “The moment I received the money in our account it was just like… This burden just got lifted off my shoulders and I was like ‘Yes! – Like now I can honestly start this business!’ Where before it was like just written on paper, now it can become a reality, it is going to become a reality. And we got an office, and we went to school, and we were able to provide for both of our families and pay for medical insurance.”
Juliet speaks for the first time. “It’s very comforting to know that we are okay and that my little girls are okay. It really got our family closer and the girls get to see their daddy a lot more.”
“No regrets, no remorse,” Roger concluded, “Nothing but happiness. J.G. Wentworth kept their word.”
