The Clock is Ticking on NFL Concussion Settlement Registration
Former NFL players have until August 7, 2017 to register for the NFL Concussion Settlement benefits. That’s only 140 days from today. If you do not register, you will NEVER be able to access the benefits of the Settlement.
Over 10,000 former players have already registered, and in many cases the attorneys that represent players have registered their clients. If you are represented by an attorney, please check with them to find out if they have already registered you for the Settlement benefits. If you are not represented by an attorney, you will need to register on your own.
It only takes about 5 minutes to register online. You can begin the process by clicking on this link: Registration Form. Once you have completed the registration process, they will send you an email confirming your registration. Print out the confirmation and keep it in a safe place.
For players that are not currently represented by an attorney, it is important for you to know that you do not need an attorney to register. There are a number of attorneys that are soliciting former players and telling them that they should retain an attorney. That decision is totally up to you, but again, it is not a requirement.
One last thing…..
If you did not watch the livestream video of Judge Brody’s Status Conference on the Concussion Settlement, it was recorded and you can watch it by clicking on the following link: Status Conference. You may need to hold down the Ctrl Key on your keyboard while simultaneously clicking on the link.
