Welcome to the Retirement Value LLC Receivership website. This website was established to provide information regarding the status of the case as well as our efforts to recover assets for the investors’ benefit. If you have questions that are not answered by the website, please contact the Receiver directly. His contact information can be found on the Contact Information page.
After reviewing the available cash and the level of reserves he is required to maintain, the Receiver has determined that he cannot make a distribution to the investors at this time. According to the latest stochastic report, the Receiver is required to maintain approximately $12 million in premium reserves. As a result, he does not have sufficient cash on hand to make a distribution. When additional maturities occur, the Receiver will re-evaluate whether he can make a distribution.
Although the active phase of the Receivership has ended, the Receiver continues to manage the estate’s cash and insurance policies. To keep the investors and court informed, the Receiver will report on the status of the estate and his activities quarterly. You can find the quarterly reports on the Investor Communications page. The Receiver has issued his report for the fourth quarter of 2018.
June 6, 2018 -- Policy AGL130-012110-PM ($2 million) has matured. The Receiver is in the process of collecting the death benefit for this policy. Later this year, the Receiver will determine whether the estate has enough money available to make a distribution in light of the reserves that he is required to maintain. If the Receiver determines that he has enough excess cash to make a distribution, he will seek permission from the Court to do so.
June 7, 2018 -- Policy Nos. LFG782-090409-HO ($5 million) and ING201-071509-AG ($5 million) matured in February 2018. The Receiver has collected the death benefit for both policies. Later this year, the Receiver will determine whether the estate has enough money available to make a distribution in light of the reserves that he is required to maintain. If the Receiver determines that he has enough excess cash to make a distribution, he will seek permission from the Court to do so. Cash reserves are currently low. Accordingly, the Receiver anticipates that he will need to use most, if not all, of the $10 million in maturities experienced so far in 2018 to replenish the cash reserves.
To date, ten of the policies in the portfolio have matured generating $37.7 million in collected death benefits. An additional policy matured in June 2018, which should generate an additional $2 million in death benefits. With the maturities and distributions to date, the portfolio is performing as expected. While the Receiver anticipates making additional distributions, he does not know when the next distribution will be made or how much it will be. Whether a distribution will be made and the amount of the distribution depends largely on the number and size of the policies that mature. Each maturity will not necessarily result in a distribution. The Receiver can make a distribution only when the cash held by the Receiver exceeds the amount that he is required to keep in reserve to pay premiums and other expenses.
