Arbitration Agreement

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED, TO THE RIGHT TO BRING AN ACTION IN COURT, TO SEEK TRIAL BY JURY, AND TO BRING CLASS ACTIONS. Any claim, dispute, or controversy arising from or relating to your relationship with Retirement Genius or its affiliates, whether in contract, tort, pursuant to statute, regulation, ordinance, or in equity or otherwise, wherever and by whomever commenced (“Claim”), shall, upon delivery of a written notice demanding arbitration to the other party (including a written notice after the commencement of a lawsuit or a notice contained in court filings in any such lawsuit), be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual (not class) basis only.  Such arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq. (and not any state law concerning arbitration), these Terms, and the applicable rules of JAMS–excluding any rules pertaining to class arbitration, and subject to any modifications of those rules by this Arbitration Agreement–in effect at the time of the written notice demanding arbitration.  In the event of a conflict between JAMS rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control.  In the event of a conflict between this Arbitration Agreement and another potentially applicable contractual arbitration provision, this Arbitration Agreement shall control.  The arbitrators shall not apply any arbitration provision other than this Arbitration Agreement in administering any arbitration concerning Claims falling within the scope of this Arbitration Agreement.  The term “Claim”, as used in this Arbitration Agreement, is to be given the broadest possible meaning, and includes without limitation claims, disputes, or controversies arising from telephone, email, text or written communications from Retirement Genius or its affiliates, or qualifying your policy for possible purchase.  Any dispute regarding arbitrability, including the permissibly of class arbitration, however, shall be resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not in arbitration.  For avoidance of doubt, all disputes regarding the availability of classwide or consolidated arbitration shall be resolved in court and not in arbitration, regardless of the posture under which such disputes arise.  YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IN ARBITRATION.  DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL GENERALLY ARE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS APPLICABLE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS FULLY BINDING IN THE EVENT THAT A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR LAWSUIT OR CLASS ARBITRATION IS FILED IN WHICH YOU WOULD BE A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER, OR WOULD ACT IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY.  YOU AGREE THAT THERE SHALL BE NO CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED ARBITRATION OF ANY CLAIM, AND YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO ARBITRATE OR LITIGATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

JAMS will be used for the purposes of administering an arbitration governed by this Arbitration Agreement. The website containing applicable rules for JAMS is www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be decided by one (1) arbitrator, who must be a lawyer with more than ten (10) years of experience or a retired judge.

Arbitrations seeking relief less than $100,000 in the aggregate will be held within the federal judicial district encompassing the city where you reside.  Arbitrations seeking relief of $100,000 or more in the aggregate will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Retirement Genius will pay the first $2,500.00 in fees charged by the arbitration administrator for Claim(s) associated by you in the arbitration, after you have paid an amount equivalent to the fee, if any, had such Claim(s) been filed in state or federal court (whichever is less) in the judicial district in which you reside or are located.  Thereafter, the parties to the arbitration shall share the arbitration fees equally, which amounts shall not be recoverable in the arbitration.  Each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own attorney, expert, and other fees.

Consistent with the individual (not class) nature of the arbitration for which this Arbitration Agreement provides, there shall be no discovery in such arbitration of the name or other identifying information of any insured or policy owner.  Nor shall there be discovery in such arbitration of any trade secret, or any document or information pertaining to one or more transactions in which you were not directly involved.  The arbitrator shall apply the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Federal Rules of Evidence, except that in the event of a conflict between any of those rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control.

If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the other provisions of the Arbitration Agreement; provided, however, that if the prohibition on classwide arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable–an issue that may be considered only in a putative class proceeding–then this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void.
