A.M. Best Withdraws Credit Ratings of United Security Assurance Company of Pennsylvania

OLDWICK, N.J.--()--A.M. Best has withdrawn the Financial Strength Rating of C- (Weak) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “cc”, each with a negative outlook, of United Security Assurance Company of Pennsylvania (United Security) (Souderton, PA).

The rating withdrawals reflect the insufficient information being provided to A.M. Best to support an ongoing credit opinion of the company consistent with A.M. Best’s rating criteria policies and procedures. A.M. Best’s policy is for a final rating to be completed along with a rating withdrawal. However, a final rating was not able to be completed due to lack of financial data and other information necessary to support the formation of a current credit rating opinion.
