Florida’s United P&C Now Insolvent, Headed for Liquidation

Just days after some 90,000 policies from troubled United Property & Casualty Insurance Co. were transferred to Slide Insurance as part of a wind-down of the carrier, it was announced that UPC is officially broke and will soon be liquidated.

“United was deemed insolvent Feb. 6, 2023, because if all of the assets of United, if made immediately available, (they) would be insufficient to discharge all of the liabilities of United,” reads an affidavit from the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation’s director of property and casualty financial oversight. It was part of a consent order placing the company into receivership, made public Friday.

It’s the 10th insolvency for a Florida property carrier in the last two years. It’s also one of the first major actions taken under newly appointed Florida Insurance Commissioner Michael Yaworsky, who took over after former Commissioner David Altmaier resigned in December.
