One company is known for having ads depicting Vikings sing opera in unusual places. The other company is known for having a little animated cartoon dog. Both are major players in the business of purchasing annuities and structured settlements in exchange for purchasing lump sum payments. However, J.G. Wentworth (the company with the Vikings) and Peachtree Settlement Funding (the company with the dog) have more than their industry in common.
Both entities fall under the umbrella of JGWPT Holdings; a well-respected company that specializes in consumer specialty funding. Based on this connection, it should not be that much of a surprise to see that both companies command a great deal of respect in the industry.
A Few Differences
Even though Peachtree Settlement and J.G. Wentworth share the same DNA, don’t think that they are carbon copies of each other. First off, J.G. Wentworth is slightly older – it was formed in 1991, while Peachtree came into existence in 1996. And from a service standpoint, J.G. Wentworth offers a few more, specialized purchasing services than Peachtree. These services include:
- Mortgage Notes
- Mineral Rights and Royalties
- Cell Tower Lease Advances
Apart from these differences, both companies offer services that have received a consistently high level of praise on various review sites for their ability to take a complex process like annuity purchasing and streamlining it into something understandable on a customer level.
Both J.G. Wentworth and Peachtree Settlement Funding are individually accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB); a status that more or less protects them from any concern that someone may have about them being a scam. This accreditation serves as the jumping off point for both services’ reputation as being industry leaders.
In the case of both companies, it can be argued that the primary strength is their adherence to customer service. Both companies’ customer care teams get routinely high marks on various review sights for being courteous, knowledgeable, and being keenly aware of the unique scenarios that may surround a customer’s need to sell off their annuity or structured settlement.
Additionally, both companies have a knack for providing prospective customers with a wealth of tools and information that can help them get a better understanding of how the annuity purchase process works. Some of these tools are similar in nature; both sites, for example, have quote request tools that customers can use to get a bead on the kind of lump sum amount they stand to receive by using their respected services. However, there are a few tools that are exclusive to the respective sites. J.G. Wentworth contains an extensive glossary of terms that help customers how to speak the language of annuity purchasing. On the other hand, Peachtree offers a series of video tutorials that take the customer through the entire process of selling off their annuity in exchange for a cash settlement, step by step. Ultimately, both sites’ arsenal of tools and information make the process far less intimidating than it otherwise could be.
Even though J.G. Wentworth and Peachtree Settlement Funding are part of the same parent company, the fact that they act as two separate entities means that they have different sets of contact data. If you wish to get a hold of J.G. Wentworth, they can be reached at 1-800-741-9545. Conversely, if you wish to get in touch with Peachtree, you can do so by calling 1-800-821-7773. That said, the two companies do share the same corporate building: 201 King of Prussia Road, Radnor, PA 19087, although Peachtree’s offices are technically located in Suite 501 of the building.Call Us Today
