Proof of claim forms have been mailed. The claims filing deadline was February 15, 1994. Any proof of claim form received after the claims filing deadline was considered "late filed".
In 1994, the First Interim Claims Report was filed and approved by the Second Judicial Circuit Court in and for Leon County, Florida ("Court") to resolve claims made by Class 5 claimants, which were, at that time, the employees of the company.
On October 12, 2005, the Second Interim Claims Report was filed with the Court in the estate of Union General. On October 14, 2005, the Court issued an order approving the report. On November 4, 2005, notices were sent to 8,011 claimants who filed a proof of claim with estate of Union General. The notice informed the claimants of the Receiver's recommendations concerning the classification and amount of their claim, along with instructions on how to proceed if the claimant objected to the recommendations. Objections were required to be filed by the claimant, in writing, with both the Court and the Receiver and postmarked by December 16, 2005. Objections filed after that date were not considered. All objections have been resolved.
On July 21, 2006, the Receiver's Motion for Approval of the Final Claims Report, Claims Distribution Report, Distribution Accounting and for Order Authorizing Distribution, was filed with the Court. On July 29, 2006, the Court issued an order granting approval for the Receiver to mail distribution checks representing 100% of the recommended and adjudicated amount to claimants Classes 1, 2, and 3. As a result of the order, 3,792 claimants were approved to receive a distribution check. On August 22, 2006, distribution checks were mailed. The majority of the distribution checks represented the $100.00 statutory deductible applied by the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association ("FIGA") in their settlement of claims within this estate.
It is unknown at this time when a subsequent distribution will take place for claimants in Classes 4 through 10.
All undelivered distribution checks from the August 2006 distribution have
been sent to the Department of Financial Services, Bureau of Unclaimed Property.
