NOTICE OF PROTECTION PROVIDED BY
CALIFORNIA LIFE AND HEALTH INSURANCE GUARANTEE ASSOCIATIONThis notice provides a brief summary regarding the protections provided to policyholders by the California Life and Health Insurance Guarantee Association (“the Association”). The purpose of the Association is to assure that policyholders will be protected, within certain limits, in the unlikely event that a member insurer of the Association becomes financially unable to meet its obligations. Insurance companies licensed in California to sell life insurance, health insurance, annuities and structured settlement annuities are members of the Association. The protection provided by the Association is not unlimited and is not a substitute for consumers' care in selecting insurers. This protection was created under California law, which determines who and what is covered and the amounts of coverage.
Below is a brief summary of the coverages, exclusions and limits provided by the Association. This summary does not cover all provisions of the law; nor does it in any way change anyone's rights or obligations or the rights or obligations of the Association.
● Persons Covered Generally, an individual is covered by the Association if the insurer was a member of the Association and the individual lives in California at the time the insurer is determined by a court to be insolvent. Coverage is also provided to policy beneficiaries, payees or assignees, whether or not they live in California.
● Amounts of Coverage The basic coverage protections provided by the Association are as follows.
● Life Insurance, Annuities and Structured Settlement Annuities For life insurance policies, annuities and structured settlement annuities, the Association will provide the
The maximum amount of protection provided by the Association to an individual, for all life insurance, annuities and structured settlement annuities is $300,000, regardless of the number of policies or contracts covering the individual.
The maximum amount of protection provided by the Association to an individual, as of April 1, 2011, is $470,125. This amount will increase or decrease based upon changes in the health care cost component of the consumer price index to the date on which an insurer becomes an insolvent insurer.

Coverage by the Association generally requires residency in California. You should not rely on coverage by the Association in selecting an insurance company or in selecting an insurance policy.
The following policies and persons are among those that are excluded from Association coverage:
● A policy or contract issued by an insurer that was not authorized to do business in California when it issued the policy or contract ● A policy issued by a health care service plan (HMO), a hospital or medical service organization, a charitable organization, a fraternal benefit society, a mandatory state pooling plan, a mutual assessment company, an insurance exchange, or a grants and annuities society ● If the person is provided coverage by the guaranty association of another state ● Unallocated annuity contracts; that is, contracts which are not issued to and owned by an individual and which do not guaranty annuity benefits to an individual ● Employer and association plans, to the extent they are self-funded or uninsured ● A policy or contract providing any health care benefits under Medicare Part C or Part D ● An annuity issued by an organization that is only licensed to issue charitable gift annuities ● Any policy or portion of a policy which is not guaranteed by the insurer or for which the individual has assumed the risk, such as certain investment elements of a variable life insurance policy or a variable annuity contract ● Any policy of reinsurance unless an assumption certificate was issued ● Interest rate yields (including implied yields) that exceed limits that are specified in Insurance Code Section 1607.02(b)(2)(C).
