NEW YORK, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Case Funding has announced that it will provide millions of dollars in interim financing and support to retired NFL players who are part of the recent NFL Class Action Settlement. Despite the Settlement Order being entered by Judge Brody of the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on April 22, 2015, it will be many months, it not years, before the appeals process is completed and former players begin to receive their settlement awards.
"Former players are hoping for an expedited appeals process, but individuals close to the proceedings predict it will take an extended period of time before the appeals are settled and funds begin to flow," says Richard Silverstein, President of Case Funding. "While some players can wait for their awards, many are in financially stressed situations, primarily because of their injuries, and require money to live now. That's where Case Funding can help," he added.
Case Funding has allocated funds specifically to support a program for eligible retired players, so they can receive a pre-settlement advance on their concussion settlement proceeds. Players and other interested parties who would like more information on Case Funding's NFL Concussion Settlement Program, should contact a specialist at (800)-543-4043 or [email protected]
