How do I file a claim against Seminole Casualty?
There are two different processes for filing claims against Seminole Casualty, a property and casualty insurer. Some claims are covered by the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association ("FIGA") while other claims can only be filed against the estate of Seminole Casualty because they are not covered by FIGA.
FFIGA will process loss claims relating to losses which are covered under your commercial automobile and/or artisan contractors’ general liability policies. FIGA will also cover unearned premium claims on your insurance policy that was cancelled by the liquidation order. Both claims are subject to a $100 deductible.

Claims for losses not covered by FIGA (amounts under FIGA's $100 deductible and amounts that over their coverage caps), agent claims, employee claims, government claims and general creditor claims may become claims against the estate of Seminole Casualty so long as you have a filed claim with the Receiver. In order to file a claim, you will need to complete a proof of claim form. The Receiver has not yet begun the proof of claim filing process. In the coming months, additional information on the claim filing process will be posted to this website.
What are the deadlines for filing a claim?
The Receiver's deadline for filing a claim against the estate of Seminole Casualty is March 16, 2012. The deadline for FIGA to settle claims is one year after the Receiver's deadline per Section 631.68, Florida Statutes. Since the Receiver's deadline is March 16, 2012, FIGA's deadline for settling claims is March 16, 2013 unless a lawsuit was initiated.
