On Friday, December 9th, the US Supreme Court Justices met for a Justices’ Conference in which they reviewed the appeals related to the NFL concussion settlement.  We are happy to report that they denied the appeals.  The NFL SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT IS NOW FINAL, and the EFFECTIVE DATE of the Agreement is December 12, 2016.  The schedule now is:


  • Within 90 days of the Effective Date, the website for claims administration and the automated phone system will be active.
  • Within 90 days of the Effective Date, the Baseline Assessment Program doctors (BAP providers) will be identified, as well as Monetary Award Fund (MAF) physicians.
  • Within 120 days of the Effective Date, the BAP will commence.
  • Within 180 days of Effective Date, all class members must register for the settlement.


We are pleased with the decision of the court and will continue to provide updates as this moves forward.
