Effective April 14, 2021, American Capital Assurance Corporation (“Company”) was ordered into liquidation by the Second Judicial Circuit Court in Leon County, Florida. The Florida Department of Financial Services (“Department” or “Receiver”) is the court appointed receiver for the Company. Copies of the Liquidation Order and other relevant information are available on the Department’s website, https://www.myfloridacfo.com/division/receiver/.
With the entry of the liquidation order, the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association (“FIGA”) has been activated to help pay outstanding Florida claims for property and casualty policies. The processing and payment of covered claims will be made by FIGA (subject to the lesser of policy limits or FIGA’s maximum cap). The maximum amount FIGA will cover is generally $300,000 per claim or $200,000 times the number of units for condominium and homeowner’s association claims. No claim will be paid in excess of this cap. All claims are subject to a $100 statutory deductible over and above any deductible identified in the Company’s policy. For more information on FIGA’s claim handling see the FAQ section of this website.
