COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In the unlikely event that the United States Government postpones the payment of interest or principal on obligations that come due in the near term, the Property & Casualty (P&C) insurance industry, as a whole, is uniquely positioned to hold its own.
Although the P&C insurance industry holds approximately $150 billion of U.S. government obligations, less than $50 billion matures in the next year. Given that the amount of principal and interest due from the U.S. Government to the P&C industry in the next twelve months represents only 3% of the P&C industry's aggregate cash and invested assets, which are approximately $1,325 billion, the P&C insurance industry will not be adversely impacted if there is a disruption in these cash flows.
