Missouri Insurance Guaranty Associations

Executive Director: Tamara Kopp

Insurance guaranty associations provide protection, within limits, to insureds, beneficiaries, and claimants who are disadvantaged due to the insolvency of a member insurance company. Not all companies are member companies, and not all types of insurance policies and coverage are subject to the protection provided by insurance guaranty associations.

There are two insurance guaranty associations in Missouri, MOPCIGA (or the Missouri Property and Casualty Insurance Guaranty Association) and MOLHIGA (or the Missouri Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Association). They are jointly administered from one office. However, they have separate and distinct responsibilities under their respective statutes. One association is responsible for insurance company insolvencies among the member life and health insurance companies, and the other association is responsible for insolvencies occurring among the member property and casualty insurance companies.

In 2001, MOLHIGA and MOPCIGA entered into a Joint Administration Agreement to improve efficiencies and share some administrative expenses, including an Executive Director and employees. Charles F. “Chuck” Renn was the first person to serve as Executive Director for the Missouri Insurance Guaranty Associations. Upon Chuck’s retirement in 2019, Tamara W. Kopp became the second person to serve as Executive Director for both insurance guaranty associations.
