The Massachusetts State Lottery Commission ("Lottery") requested qualified Insurance Companies to be one of a pool of Insurance Companies eligible to provide “LIFETIME” Annuity Bids to the Lottery. A life annuity pays a guaranteed income for life. The Lottery purchases from Insurance Companies lawfully doing business in the Commonwealth, annuities payable to the Commonwealth to be used for payment of Lottery prizes. Winning firms are selected through a competitive bid process using an “Annuity Solicitation Letter” and “Official Annuity Offer Form” which details the response requirements and the bid opening date. The Procurement Management Team (PMT) determined that the submissions constituted the best value for the Lottery. Based upon the responses, the PMT agreed that seven (7) Insurance companies met the criteria to be approved to the MSLC's "Pre-Qualified List of Providers" of lifetime annuity bids.
