CCIA Supports Connecticut's Captive Insurance Solution to Crumbling Home Foundations

The state of Connecticut has decided to provide over $100 million to fund a captive insurer, Connecticut Foundation Solutions Indemnity Company, Inc., that will insure the replacement or repair of residential foundations damaged by the chemical pyrrhotite. CCIA Member Michael Maglaras & Company has been working feverishly as the Superintendent to make this captive operational. CFSIC has been licensed as a captive insurer under the Connecticut captive statutes, and is fully formed with a Board of Directors and all service providers in place. The final step remaining in order for CFSIC to launch will be the transfer of needed funding from the Connecticut Department of Housing in order to begin its mission. CFSIC expects this transfer to occur in January. Please refer to for more information and refer to or for more background information. CCIA supports this innovative use of a captive and how it will come to the aid of affected Connecticut homeowners.
