today requiring The Chubb Group of companies to refund over $13 million in excess profits to its customers. The order states that the Office of Insurance Regulation performed an evaluation of the data submitted by the group, and determined that between the years 2002 and 2004, the insurers realized excess profits in the amount of $13,099,891 for workers' compensation business.
"Florida law prohibits insurers to earn excess profits and requires that if we determine any were earned, the company must return it to the policyholders," McCarty said.
