Bill Bossi speaks at the 29th Annual Rose Conference in Minneapolis

On September 19, 2013 Bill Bossi was one of the featured speakers in the Disability Track presentation panel on Settlements, Reserves and Actuaries.  The presentation assisted attenders in demystifying claim reserves and discussed best practices for lump sum settlements on disability claims.  Bill talked about the potential benefits of lump-sum settlements which included dispute resolution, customer service, efficiency – reducing cost of claim handling or better allocation of resources and Securitizing the liability (turning an estimated quantity into a known quantity).   He also covered the process involved in handling lump sum settlements which include identification of appropriate candidates, exploration of interest level of claimant, underwriting – medical, financial and moral, pricing, offer – Options, acceptance or rejection and implementation if accepted.  Attendees came away with a fresh perspective on how this important tool can be utilized more effectively by their claim operations.
