As of July 25, 2003, Legion Insurance Company and Villanova Insurance Company ("Legion") were in liquidation in Pennsylvania.

An ancillary liquidation order was entered in California on April 25, 2003.

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department is the domiciliary liquidator of Legion, and all claims - related questions, other than California Insurance Guarantee Association (CIGA) covered claims, and other questions should be referred to the following: Statutory Liquidator, Legion Insurance Company in Liquidation, One Logan Square, Philadelphia, PA 19103; Phone: (215) 979-7879 or (717) 787-7823.
