Entities That May Currently Operate As Life Settlement Providers in New York

Return to Life Settlements section

On November 19, 2009, Governor David A. Paterson signed into law Chapter 499 of the Laws of 2009, which repealed Article 78 of the Insurance Law, entitled "Viatical Settlements", and added a new Article 78 entitled, "Life Settlements." Chapter 499 became fully effective May 18, 2010.
