Important Information for NORCAL Mutual Policyholders

This message impacts NORCAL Mutual policyholders with a policy in effect as of February 18, 2020, including any successor policy to a policy in effect on this date.*

Act Now! First deadline is April 21, 2021

NORCAL Group and ProAssurance Corporation (NYSE: PRA) have announced the signing of an agreement to combine the companies, which will convert NORCAL from a mutual insurance company to a stockholder company. In conjunction with the pending agreement, all NORCAL Mutual members (policyholders) should have received a “Notice of Proposed Transaction” packet containing full details regarding the stock conversion and instructions for electing one of four options for consideration based on their allocable equity. 

For many policyholders, the payouts will involve substantial amounts of money! Do not miss this opportunity to vote and select a payout option. Regardless of your payout option, your policy will continue as usual with NORCAL. If you elect to change insurance carriers after the conversion, under no circumstances let your policy lapse until after you have received payout funds! 



The packet may have gone to the billing address of the administrator paying your policy premium. If they don’t have it, request a packet immediately from Georgeson LLC, the Information Agent for NORCAL. You must go through Georgeson (not NORCAL). Call 888-206-5970 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., PDT, Monday–Friday or Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., PDT.



Read carefully through your packet, select an option and respond by USPS mail or online at
