Policyholder Information

Company Overview

The Universe Life Insurance Company was an insurer domicilied in Idaho and licensed to operate in 24 states. The company offered non-participating ordinary life (including term and group) and group and individual hospitalization insurance; long term care; accident and health; and disability policies. The company was ordered into liquidation in December 1998. The following year, the state life and health insurance guaranty associations helped arrange for a number of companies to assume the policies of Universe Life (see below).

Policy & Claims Administration

Policies of an insolvent company are often transferred to a financially sound insurance company. If policies are not transferred to another company, the policies are continued and claims administered by either the guaranty associations or a third-party administrator (TPA) working on behalf of the associations. Please contact the company/TPA listed below or the guaranty association in your state of residence for more information about your policy.
