Status Report on LGIC Runoff - May 2013

    May 6, 2013: This web page has been updated with the most recent financial information for LGIC.

Lincoln General Insurance Company ("Lincoln") has been in "runoff" since February 2009. As such, and subject to certain statutory and/or legal exceptions, Lincoln ceased writing new policies in or around February 2009. In addition, Lincoln is currently working with the Pennsylvania Department of Insurance in an effort to satisfy remaining obligations and liabilities.

With that background, we refer you to Lincoln's most recent financial statements. which are available at
