CBC Settlement Funding

CBC Settlement Funding provides the financial services for Annuity.org. The 7-year-old company is based in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, and specializes in giving people access to money that would otherwise be locked away. It provides up-front money and consistently directs clients through the court system with speedy efficiency and quality service.

CBC assists clients with financial assets ranging from retirement annuities, casino and lottery winnings to personal injury settlements and other financial products. Its reputation for service is so strong that an overwhelming number of clients turn into repeat customers. CBC offers competitive prices and, in many cases, up-front cash to clients.

Between them, company founders William J. Skyrm, Esq., and James Goodman have more than 30 years of experience in the structured settlement industry. Their experience makes them intimately familiar with all the situations that arise around people and personal finances. Since opening in 2008, CBC has paid millions of dollars to thousands of people. Skyrm and Goodman believe strongly in the regulation of the secondary market, knowing that doing things the right way and providing excellent customer service always pays dividends.

Because of its commitment to customer service and the length of time it has in the industry, CBC earned an A+ ranking from the Better Business Bureau. That means the BBB determined CBC has a low volume of customer complaints and that when issues do arise, the company makes a good-faith effort to resolve them the right way.
