CastlePoint National Insurance Company ("CastlePoint") was placed into Conservation on July 28, 2016.
On March 30, 2017, CastlePoint was placed into Liquidation by the Superior Court of the City and County of San Francisco effective April 1, 2017. A copy of the Liquidation order is available at www.caclo.org/CastlePoint. The Company wrote workers' compensation, general liability and various other lines of property and casualty insurance in 47 states. A proof of claim bar date (the last date on which a claim may be filed) was set at December 31, 2017 and claims continue to be processed by the Liquidator through his Conservation and Liquidation Office ("the CLO").

On April 1, 2017, 5,977 claims were transferred to the appropriate state insurance guaranty associations for handling. These guaranty associations become statutorily obligated to pay covered CastlePoint claims (up to applicable state limits) once a member insurer becomes insolvent. Contacts for the applicable state insurance guaranty associations can be found at www.caclo.org/CastlePoint. Some CastlePoint policies were written on an excess & surplus basis, meaning that the insurer was not a member company of a Guaranty Association, and claims from those policies are not afforded Guaranty Association coverage and must be handled through the Proof of Claim process.
