Background

There are two types of ratings agencies typically issue:

1) Claims-paying and/or financial strength ratings - assess an insurer's ability to meet its financial obligations to policyholders.

2) Debt ratings - assess a company's prospects for repaying its debts and assist lenders in setting interest rates and terms for a company's commercial paper, loans, bonds, etc.

The system and number rating categories may vary between agencies. The Hartford's claims-paying/financial strength ratings relative to each agency's rating scale are as follows:
