Mutual of Enumclaw seeks to convert to holding company

Mutual of Enumclaw Insurance Co. and its subsidiary, Enumclaw Property and Casualty Insurance Co., have requested permission from the Oregon Insurance Commissioner to reorganize into a holding company structure. Holding companies are corporations that own and control other companies. The new holding company would be the direct owner of Mutual of Enumclaw and the indirect owner of Enumclaw Property and Casualty Insurance Co.

While the Washington Office of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC) is not overseeing this conversion, Mutual of Enumclaw has a large customer base in Washington state. The OIC wants Washington consumers to have an opportunity to attend this hearing or provide comment, if they wish to.

The hearing is at 6 p.m. on Dec. 15 in Seattle. View the notice for the hearing location and instructions on how to participate by telephone. Comments may be submitted in writing to this address before Dec. 22:
