Q:

Why should I sell my settled case with the City of New York or the State Liquidation Bureau?

A:

The City of New York, The City of New York Transportation Authority, The City of New York Housing Authority, The City of New York Board of Education and The City of New York Health and Hospital Corporation are protected by Statute and have the right to withhold payment up to 90 days after the receipt of all closing papers.

The State of New York Insurance Department Liquidation Bureau can take as long as necessary due to the fact that all payments are provided by State funding. The average time for the State of New York Liquidation Bureau to make payment is about nine months, depending on what fund the State is paying from.

Q:

Does the City or State pay interest while payment is in process?

A:

Neither the City or State will pay one penny of interest. In essence, if you wait for the City or State to make payment, you are giving them an interest free loan.
