Ratings compiled as of June 6, 2011.
According to its website, "Weiss Ratings tracks the financial safety of approximately 875 U.S. life and annuity insurance companies each and every quarter. It issues Weiss Financial Strength Ratings based on Weiss' analysts' review of publicly available information collected by the NAIC, and supplemented by data that Weiss says it collects directly from the companies themselves. Weiss does not accept compensation from the companies it rates for issuing the ratings, and thus does not allow companies to influence the ratings they receive or to suppress the release of their ratings".
One of the insurers listed above has contacted this author following publication of this report and pointed out that Weiss did not contact his or her company.
