What would you like to do?
Absolutely - I'm not certain that any company would be prohibited from making investments. Insurance companies are commonly considered a very major sources of funds and do a lot of investment business. Kind of goes hand in hand with having lots of money. It is not uncommon fo one to essentially lose money on insurance operations, but make so much using the cash or reserves they need to maintain that their investment operations make up for it.

I am sorry for you and your mother's loss. I hope you are doing okay. Take a look at the life insurance policy itself. There should be a phome number and address of the life i…nsurance company stated somewhere on the policy. You can contact the life insurance company and ask who is handling the servicing of your life insurance policy. You can also ask them what the cash value of the policy is and if the policy is paid up full. If the company information is not available on the policy then contact the department of insurance in your state and asking them if they have the contact information for your life insurance company. Do a search on the internet for the department of insurance in your state. Answer In Minnesota, insurance companies are required by law to contribute to a fund established just for such situations. In Minnesota, at least, a life policy will always be paid, no matter what. Different states have different guarantee mechanisms. Minnesota does not guarantee that a policy with a value above $500,000 will be paid. But most policies are paid because the various State departments of insurance will step in and sell the assets of the failing company to another in order to fund as much payment as possible.
Insurance companies out of business? This is really too broad a question to answer. In California alone, approximately twenty workers' compensation carriers… went out of business (or were declared insolvent) between 2001 and 2005. Some simply ceased to exist, others were purchased by other companies that bought the assets/liabilitys and the policies. There have been many mergers and old company names that have been absorbed. The best way to find out if a carrier is still in business is to check with your state's Department of Insurance, which should list all carriers admitted to write business in your state.

When a car is totaled with a balance owed to the finance company and there is no car insurance is is possible the finance company will give another loan and consilidate the payments?
Yes on certain conditions. The first is that the amount still owed to the financial institution is not greater than the maximum amount allowed on the new vehicle being purchas…ed. what i mean is if you were to buy a 06 Taurus for 10,990 and you still owed 26,000 on your previous vehicle the financing institution would not allow you to buy a Taurus for 37,000 plus, so if you don't owe much and your credit is good enough you should be fine!

Restaurant Examples: A couple comes in and orders food & beverages. They dine then pay for their meal. The Charge for the Meal and the Receipt of the Payment is a Business T…ransaction. The Restaurant orders food & beverages from one of their Vendors. The Vendor delivers the Goods. That is a Business Transaction. The Vendor invoices the Restaurant for the food & beverages delivered. The Restaurant pays the Vendor. The Charge and the Payment are Business Transactions. The Restaurant uses its Bank Line of Credit to purchase new Furniture from a Restaurant Supplier. That is a Business Transaction. The Supplier sells the Furniture to the Restaurant. That is a Business Transaction. Each Month, the Restaurant makes a payment to the Bank on the Line of Credit. That is a Business Transaction. The Owner of the Business sells the Business to someone else. That is a Business Transaction. The new Owner fires the Cook. That is a Business Transaction. Then he hires his nephew. That might be considered a Business Transaction.

Identifying the "best business insurance company" is, in some respects, a personal determination. That is, business owners with different insurers have had differ…ent experiences with them. The relative happiness of an insured with the insurer often arises from claim experience and customer service in the event of a loss. Promptness, efficiency, and at least the perception of fairness in handling claims greatly influences the insured's feelings about the insurer. Often, customer service in the claims process is an important part of the services of the person or entity that sold the insured the insurance. This is especially true when that person or entity is an "agent". An agent is often considered to be a representative of the insurer, rather than of the insured. Therefore, the agent's actions may reflect more closely upon the insurer than that of a broker. A broker is often considered to represent the interests of the insured (the buyer of the insurance), and therefore may be thought of as "once removed" from the actions of the insurer. Another important aspect in choosing an insurer is its financial strength. Stated otherwise, insureds must be concerned with the claims-paying ability of the insurer. This is especially true in commercial lines of insurance when potential losses can be quite large and the insurer is required to pay out sums. This is usually not a problem if one claim is made at a time, however that is not how insurance works. Instead, the insurer insures many entities, so odds are that many claims will occur at or about the same time. It is hard for the average buyer of insurance to assess financial strength, but there do exist several entities that specialize in those assessments. Two of the most prominent are A.M. Best and Fitch's, each of which have measures of financial strength and rate insurers according to those measures. Licensed agents and brokers use those ratings, among other factors, to recommend insurers to prospective insureds. Many insurers use essentially similar policy "forms" for issuing commercial insurance. A policy form is the basic written contract which defines the insurer's and the insured's duties and responsibilities, and specifies the amount of insurance coverage available, the premium to be paid by the insured, and duration of coverage. Differences may exist between insurers as to options offered, such as automatic inflation-related increases in the basic coverage amount. Some options result in an increase in premium. Finally, it is critical that insurance be obtained only from an insurer licensed to transact business in the state in which the insured is located. Insurance is regulated by the individual states, and insurers that wish to transact business in a state must generally undergo a rigorous examination by the regulator. The examination is especially concerned with financial stability, but also with the character and abilities of the principals and officers of the company. In contrast, there frequently come to the market companies that have not gone through the regulatory process and which are not licensed. This often happens when legitimate insurance of a particular type is difficult to obtain due to market conditions. These are usually scams which are established merely to accept premiums and which have no intention of paying claims. Recent incidents of this type of scam have been in the workers compensation insurance market.

Life insurance companies never go out of business. They are merged, purchased, or absorbed by another insurance company who then owned their assets and liaiblities. Any loan y…ou have on a life insurance policy is going to be less than the cash value of the insurance policy so the value is going to exceed the amount you owe. You will want to find the new insurance company who now is responsible for your policy.

If the business operates within a regulated industry-such as a taxicab company-the regulatory authority should have a record of it. If it does not operate in a regulated indu…stry, and the business is relatively good-sized, it probably has a risk management department or a person designated within the company as the risk manager. Send a letter, certified mail, return receipt requested to the person (if you can get a name), or to the "risk manager". Politely tell them why you want the information (for example, "I fell in your store on a certain date), and ask for the information. Ordinarily, they should provide the information because the protection that insurance provides is why they pay premiums.
