NSSTA Announces 2015 Master Structured Settlement Consultant ℠ (MSSC™) Program Recipients

The Board of Directors of the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA) is honored to announce the 2015 recipients of the inaugural Master Structured Settlement Consultant℠ (MSSC™) Program.


The MSSC is a professional education program that promotes a comprehensive understanding of structured settlements, combining academic rigor and perspective with the latest developments impacting the structured settlement industry. A total of 24 industry professionals earned their MSSC this year. 

"NSSTA is incredibly proud of all of the 2015 recipients of the MSSC certification," said Michael Goodman, President of NFP Settlements and the current President of NSSTA. "This program offers industry members the opportunity to further their professional education and, in turn, drive industry progress providing enhanced services for structured settlement recipients."

For more than 25 years, NSSTA and the University of Notre Dame have offered a comprehensive structured settlement industry professional certification course of study called the Certified Structured Settlement Consultant program. In 2014, NSSTA inaugurated the Master's Level program at the University of Notre Dame.

Eric Vaughn, Executive Director of the NSSTA stated, "It is very exciting that in the first year, 24 structured settlement industry leaders participated in the program, becoming the first industry members to earn this distinguished structured settlement industry certification."
