The Jefferson-Pilot Life Insurance Company gained control of the Kentucky Central Life Insurance Company in May of 1995. Policyholders from Kentucky Central Life Insurance Company were transferred to The Jefferson-Pilot Life Insurance Company. As life insurance policies of a company who shut down are usually transferred to a company that’s financially sound. If the policy did not get transferred, there are two things that may happen. The policies are continued and claims are administered through guaranty associations or a third-party working on behalf of the guaranty associations. Policyholders should contact Jefferson-Pilot Life Insurance to find out detailed information about the policy and what is happening to it. 

Guaranty association coverage is based by the state you are covered in. Policyholders could also contact their specific state guaranty association with concerns and questions about their policies. The Kentucky Central Life Insurance Company paid roughly 16.5 million dollars to guaranty associations for their support to the accounts of former policyholders.
