WHAT DO WE DO?
When a property or casualty insurance company is determined to be insolvent by a court of competent jurisdiction and an Order of Liquidation is entered, the provisions of the Chapter 687A of the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) governing NVIGA are invoked. In such circumstances NVIGA assumes the handling of the insolvent insurers open, unpaid Nevada claim files. When all provisions of NRS 687A have been satisfied, enabling a claim to qualify for protection, NVIGA participates in the case.
