Confederation Life Insurance Policyholders
Confederation Life Insurance policyholders were covered under the state life and health insurance guaranty associations that were established to help and fund monies due to policyholders. Any questions regarding coverage from a state guaranty can be answered through the state in which the policyholder purchased the policy.
Canadian policyholders should contact the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Compensation Corporation, also known as CompCorp at (800) 268-8099.
A number of companies were assigned policies to handle the obligations that were still outstanding after the liquidation. All United States health policies were transferred to Hartford Life and Accidental Insurance Company as of October 1, 1997.
Canadian policies were transferred to Manufacturers Life Insurance Company and Maritime Life Assurance Company, which is now collectively known as Manulife.
United Kingdom policies were assumed by Sun Life Assurance Company.
Cuban policies were taken over by a Cuban owned insurer. The name is not listed on Confederation’s website.
Bermuda policies were transferred to Citicorp International. However, they sold off the accounts to MetLife in 2005, but MetLife manages its Bermuda clients under the Algico name.
