Notice of Receivership
On June 1, 2005, the Second Judicial Circuit Court in and for Leon County, Florida ("Court"), issued an order placing Senior Citizens Mutual Insurance Company ("Senior Citizens") in receivership for purposes of liquidation. Senior Citizens consented to the appointment of the Florida Department of Financial Services as the court appointed Receiver of Senior Citizens. Senior Citizens previously consented to be placed into rehabilitation on May 9, 2005; however, the Department determined that a successful rehabilitation of the company was not possible. In accordance with the terms of the liquidation order, all policies in force were cancelled at 11:59 P.M. on July 1, 2005, unless otherwise cancelled earlier in the normal course of business.
Senior Citizens was a Florida domestic insurer licensed to write business in 20 states. The company specialized in other liability and commercial multi-peril coverage for senior citizens housing communities and had approximately 15 policies in force as of May 2005. The company also reinsured approximately 600 policies written directly by two other companies. Senior Citizens' home office was located in Miami, Florida.
