On August 24, 2009, First Commercial Transportation and Property Insurance Company consented to and was placed into liquidation by the Second Judicial Circuit Court in and for Leon County, Florida.

Distribution

​On May 4th, 2018, distribution checks were mailed. Claimants in class 1 and class 2 received 100% of their evaluated claim. Class 6 received a pro-rata share of 6.59% of their evaluated claim. Funds were insufficient for distribution to any additional classes. This is anticipated to be the only distribution. This distribution is made in accordance with the Court Order of April 4, 2018.

Claimants are encouraged to cash these checks as soon as possible.

A Notice is included with each check providing instruction.

Estate Closed

​By Court Order entered October 9, 2018, First Commercial Transportation and Property Insurance Company was discharged from receivership on October 31, 2018. (This means the Division of Rehabilitation & Liquidation are no longer responsible for the company.)

The Receiver’s Accounting staff is preparing to send all un-negotiated funds to Unclaimed Property. As soon as the transfer is prepared, we will provide you the transfer date. However, this can take several months. All the company bank accounts are closed. There will be no further check reissues. Therefore, please do not open service requests to request the reissue of a check. If checks are outstanding, the consumer must wait until unclaimed property has received the funds and a claim must be made with them.

Unclaimed Property From Previous Distributions:

​Pursuant to the Distribution Orders, all uncashed distribution checks were sent to the Department of Financial Services, Division of Unclaimed Property. The Division of Unclaimed Property may be reached at:
