Lt. Gov. Tregenza A. Roach Esq., who also serves as the territory’s commissioner of insurance and who was appointed by the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands as ancillary receiver of Real Legacy Assurance Company after the company was declared insolvent, reminds the public that the extended deadline to file claims for V.I. claimants ends on Friday, May 17.

Roach had earlier petitioned the domiciliary receiver for additional time to file a Proof of Claim Form by V.I. claimants. That request was approved by the Superior Court in Puerto Rico.

The lieutenant governor encourages Real Legacy Assurance policy holders to file their claims on or by the deadline date to recover any losses that occurred while covered by Real Legacy.

Claims may be filed by contacting the Office of the Lieutenant Governor — Division of Banking, Insurance and Financial Regulation at 774-7166 on St. Thomas at Nisky Center, 2nd floor, and at 773-6459 on St. Croix at 1131 King Street in Christiansted, and at the Tax Assessor Office on St. John at 776-6737.
