Florida Insurance Guaranty Associations

This page provides links to the websites of the four Florida Insurance Guaranty Associations.

The trustee works with guaranty associations to ensure that claims are resolved in a timely manner. At the heart of every insurance contract is a promise that if disaster strikes, insurance will step in to soften the blow by covering allowed outstanding claims. When an insurance company fails, a guaranty association is an entity that takes the place of the failed insurer for the purpose of providing certain ongoing benefits and/or resolution of covered claims. however, not all types of insurance policies or claims are covered by guaranty associations.
