Florida Workers' Compensation Insurance Guaranty Association
FWCIGA evaluates workers' compensation claims made by insureds against insolvent member companies or funds and determines if such claims are covered claims which should be paid or settled with funds from FWCIGA. FWCIGA also determines whether an assessment against its members is necessary to pay covered claims of an insolvent insurer, or to reimburse FWCIGA for expenses associated with carrying out its statutory functions. In addition, FWCIGA may make reports and recommendations to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation regarding solvency, liquidation or rehabilitation of member insurers, may request an examination of member insurers which may be impaired or insolvent and may make recommendations to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation regarding the detection and prevention of insolvency of a workers' compensation insurer.
