Weston Property & Casualty Insurance Company ("Weston") was found to be insolvent and placed into liquidation by a Florida court on August 8, 2022. The CONSENT ORDER APPOINTING THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF FINANCIAL SERVICES AS RECEIVER OF WESTON PROPERTY & CASUALTY INSURANCE COMPANY FOR PURPOSES OF LIQUIDATION, INJUNCTION, AND NOTICE OF AUTOMATIC STAY ("the Order") may be viewed here. The Order triggered TPCIGA's statutory obligations to Texas policyholders and claimants under TEX. INS. CODE chapter 462, known as the Guaranty Act.  

The Order permanently enjoins all persons, including policyholders and creditors, from instituting or further prosecuting any action against Weston except within the liquidation proceedings. In addition, the Texas Guaranty Act imposes an automatic six-month stay of proceedings in any case in which Weston was obligated to defend a party, effective until February 8, 2023.


The Order cancels all in-force Weston insurance policies as soon as they expire or are replaced, but in no event later than 12:01 a.m. on September 7, 2022, the thirtieth day following the date of the Order. Please contact your insurance agent or financial adviser immediately about securing other insurance.


Continue to report new claims to Weston until further notice at:

TPCIGA is working with the Florida receiver to arrange for transfer of the Texas claims to TPCIGA for handling. Policyholders and claimants are requested to forgo contacting TPCIGA on non-hardship matters for several weeks to allow sufficient time for the file transfer and initial review. TPCIGA will be unable to discuss the status of pending claims until the files have been transferred.  

If you have insurance available through any carrier other than Weston, that insurance is now primary, and you should contact your carrier to make a claim. All forms of other available insurance must be exhausted before TPCIGA can consider payment of your claim.  


Any claims for unearned premium will be processed as soon as possible after TPCIGA receives all necessary financial information from the receiver. It is not necessary to file a claim with TPCIGA for your unearned premium.


Litigation against Weston is permanently enjoined by the Order. This means your suit against Weston cannot proceed. Any pending lawsuit in which Weston is obligated to defend a party is automatically stayed for a period of six months from the date of the Order, or until February 8, 2023, pursuant to TEX. INS. CODE §462.309. The statute of limitations is not tolled by the automatic stay.


TPCIGA is not bound by a settlement or release entered into by Weston or its insureds, and such a settlement is not evidence of liability or damages against TPCIGA or an insured. TEX. INS. CODE §462.303. TPCIGA is obligated to review all claims to determine the extent to which they may be payable under the Guaranty Act.
