American General Life Insurance Company (“AGL”) has notified the State Bar of California that it is terminating its participation as the Insurer of the State Bar's Sponsored Group Life Insurance Program (the “Program”) effective November 1, 2018. The State Bar’s insurance broker, Mercer Health and Benefits Insurance Services LLC, is working with the State Bar of California to arrange for a reputable and financially strong life insurance company to replace AGL. It is expected that after a replacement carrier is selected and enters into appropriate agreements with the State Bar, the selected new carrier would become the successor life insurer for the Program. The target effective date to have a successor life insurer in place is November 1, 2018. The State Bar is seeking to have the successor life insurer maintain the same premium rates and terms of coverage, although they are unable to assure that will be the case. Until such time as a replacement carrier is selected, no new Life Insurance coverage will be issued.
