A proof of claim bar date (the last date on which a claim may be filed) was set at June 30, 2004 and all approved claims have been processed by the Liquidator through his Conservation and Liquidation Office (the "CLO").

Fremont released an $83.4 million final distribution to approved Class 2 creditors on September 26, 2019. The distribution paid 43.25% of approved policyholder claims. The estate had significant post-distribution and closing activities in 2020. In addition the estate continues to hold certain non-transferrable assets that will generate material payments to the estate over the next number of years. Fremont Indemnity is the sole owner of the stock and Charter of Fremont Life a dormant life shell. The liquidation court has further authorized the estate to retain the non-transferrable assets to be collected and to distribute those funds (together with the Fremont Life sale proceeds) when collections reach a $5 million threshold. All claims that are eligible for distribution from the estate have been approved and partially paid. NO NEW CLAIMS ARE BEING ACCEPTED BY THE ESTATE.
